Refocusing the Church

Taken from Ton Evans’ book KINGDOM MAN, PAGE 180:

Far too many men in the church are like teenagers living in a house. They want their own room, their own television, their own iPod, and their own phone, and they want to shut and lock their own door. But later they will come out and ask, “What’s for dinner?” In other words, they want convenience when it comes to the corporate dwelling, but they do not want to be disturbed with anything else. Many men have come to view the church for its convenience- help me, bless me, serve me, preach to me, sing to me, pray for me, but don’t expect me to be a vehicle to minister to anyone else or join with you to impact the world….Many men have come to view church as a task to be done rather than a community to be in.

What are your thoughts on that? How can the church change or improve to capture the hearts of all mankind?

  1. In my opinion we men need to change , when we are home we don’t need to be missing in action, when our wives ask us a question don’t answer with one word take the opportunity to actually have a conversation try it


  2. We are here to serve not to be served and should take joy in our service. James 2:16-17 Faith and Works … 16 If one of you tells him, “Go in peace; stay warm and well fed,” but does not provide for his physical needs, what good is that? 17 So too, faith by itself, if it is not complemented by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds
