Fruitful Partnership (Pastor Tshalo Katshunga)
Gospel Ramah Church is called to be a city church where we are to build fruitful partnerships because the world is in dire need of redemption.
We need to learn to see the world's desperation as God sees it. We are often relaxed because we do not see with a heart of compassion.
Relationships or unions that produce useful results for the Kingdom of God are very rare in the world today.
What is required for a fruitful partnership for God's Kingdom?
1. See correctly
2. Reach the correct conclusion
i. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a dynamic force for universal good. It is not to be confined to a single space.
ii. There is a dark side to every city life needing real, effective solutions. People are on drugs, not because they are hungry but because they are empty. Never be fooled by the glitz and glamor.
iii. There is a demonic conspiracy to sideline the Church from city life.
The world system doesn't mind if we do all our church activities outside of the city gates (CBD). The city gates are where real decisions are made.
Being a city church is not about apologetically moving around with our Bibles but about positioning ourselves so that the voice of the Church is sought after.
Ultimately, it is so that we may learn the ways of God and gain His wisdom.
