crazy ideas

What do you think would happen if when people said they would pray for you, they really did?

What do you think would happen if we let our yes mean yes and no mean no?

What do you think would happen if Marriage Recovery were more readily available at churches than Divorce Recovery or really got crazy with something like Divorce Intervention Ministries?

What do you think would happen if God's people quit playing church and really reached out to the hurting? What if we cut some fluff and had on staff real counselors for people who need help?

What do you think would happen if we treated the church body as the mission field before we went elsewhere?

What do you think would happen if more men lead their families and more women were able to stay home?

What do you think would happen if family-time the priority instead of only when there was spare time? 

What do you think would happen if God's people got off the fence and stood up for His Word and lived like they believed it, ALL of it, every jot and tittle?

What do you think would happen if we ditched the programs, the choir robes, the spotlights and had an open platform for confession, repentance and testimonies of God's miracles in the lives of believers?  ….Just New Testament, Holy Spirit-filled CHURCH!
