“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their land.”
(2 Chronicles 7: 14)
As we together make decisions that will in many ways shape the directions for our church over the coming months of a very difficult season, it is timely to remind ourselves that we make these decisions under God and that it is our relationship with Him, both individually and collectively, that will determine above all else what our church will be like in the future. We therefore today, of all days, should follow God’s word and humble ourselves before Him, pray and seek His face, turn from our sin and receive His forgiveness and allow Him to direct and control by His Spirit all that we are, do and say.
