The church many times gives us milk instead of solid food. We should be on mission to always have a game plan. We need to have a practical plan to address our own shortcomings as well as reaching the world. The church cannot impact the world when every Sunday we are learning the word “is.” It is unfortunate that we are getting taught basics about Christianity. We let our pastor do the evangelizing instead of doing it ourselves. If we want the world to change we need a game plan.
Every Sunday we need to be equipped in church. We need teaching that is practical and applies specifically to our daily lives. When I visit church I hear messages that are at an elementary level. It is basic truths that every Christian should know. What we should be doing is confronting our own sin. The sin that hinders our ability to reach out and be an example in the world. We are not putting on the Armor of God in our daily lives when all we here is how to become a Christian.
The best place to game plan our life is in small group. First you should have a place where you are accountable for your sin and shortcomings. This should be primary. Sin hurts us from being the beacon to the world. If we act just like the world then the world will win. Secondly we need to study scripture that prepares us for the struggles we face. Satan is unrelenting. So, we need to be very active in boosting our weaknesses.
We need to constantly thru the week be connecting to fellow Christians. Struggles usually turn into patterns. These patterns end up turning into addictions. We usually don’t look to sin as an addiction but it really is. Accountability partners helps stops these patterns. Without this game plan our greatest weakness will grow to define us.
Our culture will get worse and worse. Without a game plan the darkness will easily destroy the church.
