There was much to learn from the G12 Pinoy Conference.
It was a time when church leaders have come together, humbling themselves before God and opening up their minds into working with the other denominations to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission. Finally, the Body of Christ has come together.
This was only one of the most compelling verses we were given: The Lord our God said to us in Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Break camp and advance into the hill country of the Amorites; go to ALL the neighboring peoples in the Arabah, in the mountains, in the western foothills, in the Negev and along the coast, to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, as far as the great river Euphrates. See, I HAVE GIVEN YOU THIS LAND. GO IN AND TAKE POSSESSION OF THE LAND THAT THE LORD SWORE HE WOULD GIVE TO YOUR FATHERS – to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – and to their descendants after them.” (Deuteronomy 1: 6-8)
It is true that the people of Lord have long allowed fear to overcome them. First and foremost, there is the fear of rejection. Christians are either one of these: (1) They are afraid that the world would hate them when they start manifesting Christ-likeness; (2) They are afraid that their beliefs would be rejected; or (3) They are just willing to receive the blessings of God but are not willing to work for His glory and honor.
The conference was an instrument that led people to repentance from complacence and mediocrity; for taking Christ’s command for granted. The knowledge imparted was more than enough to till the hearts of God’s people that it was time to cease being a bench warmer in the church. It is the time to become a mighty warrior of God!
