2 CHRONICLES 7:14 – A GREAT PROMISE

The church is in trouble:

Lack of morals

Lack of holiness

Lack of love

Lack of evangelism

Lack of enthusiasm

Lack of effectiveness

The church is in trouble, because we are in trouble!

A sorry state of affairs – Matthew 22:37-40, John 13:24-25, James 4:1-4, Ezekiel 14:3 

IF

My People – Romans 3:10, 3:23, Romans 5:6-9,

Who are called by my name – John 10:25-30                 

If we are truly His, let’s act like it.  My Dad would settle for nothing less than acting like us kids belonged to him. 

SHALL

Humble themselves – 2 Timothy 3:1-5, Matthew 5:3,

Pray –Psalm 51:1-4, Psalm 32:1-6

Turn from their wicked ways –James 4:5-10, Ezekiel 14:6

THEN

I will hear from Heaven – John 14:13-14

Forgive their sin – 1 John 1:9

Heal their land – My personal life, my family, my local church, the universal church

Our problem – We want a cross-less Christianity! – Luke 14:25-33
