The Church: The Ground & Pillar of Truth - Romans 10:9

Romans 10:9, “because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

With an increasingly immoral society, where “everything goes”, God has left the church right smack dab in the middle of it all.  What is worse, society seems to be moving from an immoral to an amoral society.  Throughout history, people groups seemed to have a sense that there was a god, and a need to perform acts to a god to be blessed or cursed, damned or saved.  But now, it seems that more of the world has no conscience, no desire to seek God, and no need of salvation.  In the book, “ImPossible” by Lon Allison, he quotes someone saying this to the church, “For God so loved the world, that He left us here.”  The church is to valiantly be the ground and pillar of truth (1 Timothy 3:15).

Along with sharing the message of the love of Christ, the church must also dig our feet into the ground and speak Truth.  The world is crying out for Truth.  Sycomore, we must become the mouthpiece of God, and blow the trumpet of the resurrection, not only because we know it is right, but because it is done out of a life with God.  We must proclaim this great salvation.  Not with a sense of superiority, but with the same grace and mercy that we have received from God, The Father.
