A Challenge to Adults in Our Generation
We live in a fast-paced world — too busy, it seems, with our own affairs to get involved with others. The Potter’s House is made up of a tapestry of people from varying perspectives, jobs, backgrounds, and circumstances in life. We know that you are busy with work, kids, home life, leisure activities, and more. But, our generation is crying out for a cause. Something to live for beyond existing. We are tired of the cliché called ‘life in America’ — when the only thing we seem to be involved in is self-indulgence.
The problem with modern-day Christianity is that we want the benefits and blessings of the Christian life and eternal life, but we don’t want to get involved in the principles and concepts of Jesus Christ. In other words, everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die. Churches have become filled with tired programs that cater to the individual’s comfort zone and neglect the needed work of the heart—the area in which God wants to have total dominion. But, we are afraid of the surgeon’s knife, lest we feel the sting of conviction, the pull of responsibility, and the rising call to respond to the cause.
It is time for the church of Jesus Christ to rise up and get involved — adults from a generation that forsook its moral traditions for the freedoms of recklessly abandoned — that never really proved to be free after all. Mundane lifeless religion is the product of “No Involvement” Christianity — where nobody feels the hot blood of zeal and strives to respond to the cause of Christ. Sadly, comfort has become more important than serving God.
This is a call to involvement, beyond just ‘believing’. I challenge you to a level of involvement in Jesus Christ… beyond believing! I promise you that every single time you enter the doors of our sanctuary, you will hear the challenging, encouraging, life-blood-giving, uncut Word of God. The whole truth and nothing but the truth. I promise.
No matter your age or phase of your life, The Potter’s House family wants to be a part of it. In the midst of every level of involvement — as you excel and SOAR in your calling as a precious vessel of Jesus Christ, you will experience a friendly atmosphere and a place you can call home.
In His Service,
Pastor Loius Oliver
