THE INNER FEAR
His church has no Pastor,
Their Pastor was called away…
But a working of the Spirit
Has the church leadership in play.
A meeting with another member
Who prayed with hands laid on…
Brought up a time from the distant past,
Which set off an internal gong.
He himself, lays on hands imparting blessing,
Speaks in tongues rarely at best…
His fellow member is more vocal,
Just like a test in his past.
In Campus Bible Study, long ago,
Controversy sprang up in their midst…
Two different theologies clashed
Torn asunder, the ultimate gist.
So now he fears for the life of his church,
‘Though he believes the Spirit’s in control…
It’s happened for him one too many times
So he grieves for misunderstood souls.
A knee-jerk reaction could set off
The conflict he wants to avoid…
The worst thing that could happen
Is to see church unity destroyed!
He thinks he’ll talk to an Elder,
Not voice it publicly…
He wants to avoid a firestorm
Set off by his being panicky.
Pray for the unity of Christ’s Church.
