“Christianity will wither in 2020” according to the Washington Times, Dec. 30, 2019.
The title of this podcast (rant!) is from an article that I found to be both challenging and inspiring. There’s no shortage of folks who are predicting the demise of the (Big “C”) Church in America, and the data can be found to support that claim. However, I go back to Matthew 16, and Jesus’ promise that the gates of Hades will not overcome His Ekklesia/Church. Of course it goes without saying we that just because Christianity is “withering” in America doesn’t mean that it’s dying worldwide; to the contrary it is flourishing in other parts of the globe. This week let’s talk about why His Ekklesia is still vital to the development of our spiritual fruit and gifts.
Key passages for this devotional are: Mathew 16: 15-18, Ephesians 3: 6 and Hebrews 10:25.
