Hi-ho Silver to all you Lone Rangers, mis-fits and lonely cowboys! I felt like the Lord wanted you to know that there is a place for you and that you are not alone! Being one myself, not by my own choice, but out of necessity, I have experienced years of lonely rangering!
From the time I left organized religion in 1984 I hit the streets looking for the lost and ended up shepherding hundreds of un-wanted drug addicts, strippers, prostitutes and a multitude of what Mrs.. Clinton would call deplorables. Its hard to take thirty five prostitutes anywhere, especially church where women are clutching their kids and purses in fear of being robbed or molested so we had to quit going to church and became the church!
Church is not a place to go, it is a Person to be, the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, alive and well in this life in us! We are the supernatural expression of Him in the earth with His indwelling presence filling us with power and authority to act as His ambassadors and representatives in the world today! Are you one of the millions of spiritual zombies who trudge off to a dead and lifeless religious box once a week? If so, shake off the dust from your six guns and mount up! You are called to GO and fulfill that which God has anointed you to do in this life!
We are Christ's Lone Rangers, members of the true Body of the Lord Jesus and never called to sit and rot away in a pew while a talking head tickles our ears and seduces us back again next week. Don't begin another New Year without seeking God for your spiritual destiny and ask Him to show you who you really are and what He has called you to do! May God reveal His Son in you!
Till we all come to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:13
Your servant in Christ, Tim Laughlin
