Christians, being liberated and enlightened, should work distinctly.
As God's church, we have both the responsibility and authority to confront sin in order to bring about forgiveness and restoration to the glory of Christ.
While it is good and right to desire God's presence, approaching Him in the way He prescribes is the only way that ensures safety and blessing.
When we think Christian about the church, we have to define which "church" we're talking about. Is it the invisible, visible, universal, or local church?
Disciples of Jesus should ask the Father again and again for their needs, expecting to get them and more!
