This sister in the Lord (and sister of color) really hits it home. Most poems are warm fuzzy ear ticklers, but not this sister. She turns her poem (spoken word) into a well-deserved rebuke of the professed church. She speaks about the necessity for an exegesis of the Scriptures rather than an eisegesis. The need to Biblically judge professed Christians (when necessary), to repent, to quit giving credit to man – churches – or ministries; and a whole lot more.
Recently a Christian asked me “who trained you for evangelism.” My response was “Christ God Almighty, through His Word of God and His Holy Spirit.” He kept asking “but who?” I kept repeating the same words. I know this is not the natural man, but we need to strive to be less man-centric and more Christ-centric. Sometimes I hear ministries ask people to write them, and let them how their ministry has blessed them. STOP IT! Let’s give all the glory to God, and only to God. The rest of us are all knuckleheads.
“For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen (Romans 11:36).
