It's Time to Stop Playing Church
t’s Time to Stop Playing Church!
In many churches, they just want to have “fun.”
Just look at what the church has become!
It’s often a place of idolatry of various kinds.
As many come with a lot of sin on their minds.
Conviction from God doesn’t seem to last.
Preaching on sin seems to be a relic of the past.
Money and free coffee is what brings people in.
God’s presence is absent before service begins.
The people want a service that’s an hour long.
God’s spirit can’t move. It doesn’t belong!
“Come as you are,” is the motto of the day.
Yet, people leave the same as they walk away.
Do you have a problem? There’s a class for it!
Do you need prayer? Call the pastor and ask for it!
It’s like a drive thru service served on a platter!
Is there a call for holiness? It doesn’t seem to matter!
God’s judgment is coming! The church doesn’t care!
When Christ comes, many will be caught unaware!
Many churches are too busy worshiping false idols.
As many have forsaken the God of the Bible!
It’s time to repent and come before God’s throne!
Let’s allow Jesus to be the Lord of our heart and home!
Let’s seek Jesus, who requires a holy way of living!
He wants a pure heart in the life that we’re giving!
Coming to church isn’t the answer to what’s needed!
Only by obeying God’s word, can a life be completed!
Let’s preach the gospel of Jesus this very hour!
Let’s seek his presence and his righteous power!
It’s righteous living that matters the most!
Let’s be changed by God’s power of the Holy Ghost!
