When to leave a church???

“When should I leave a church or ministry team? How bad does it have to get?”

“If God sent you, do not leave until GOD releases you. If the Lord is silent, HE is often saying, Don’t change a thing. Do not leave. Stay where I had placed you!”

“When God does instruct you to leave, you will go out with peace, no matter what the condition of the ministry.”

“For yes shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace.”~~Isaiah 55:12.

“Therefore, your departure will not be based on the actions or behaviors of others but rather on the Spirit’s leading. So leaving a ministry is not based on how bad things are.”

“Physical growth is a function of time.
Intellectual growth is a function of learning. Spiritual growth is neither a function of time or learning, but it is a function of obedience.”

“Jesus learned obedience by the things HE suffered, we learn obedience by the difficult circumstances we face. When we obey the Word of God that is spoken by the Holy Spirit, we will grow and mature in the times of conflict and suffering. Our knowledge of Scripture is not the key. Obedience is.”

” Now we understand one reason why we have people in the church who have been Christians for 29 years, who can quote verses and chapters of the Bible, have heard a thousand sermons, and read many books, but still wear spiritual diapers. Every time they meet with difficult situations, rather than responding by the spirit of God, they seek to protect themselves in their own way. They are always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
(2Timothy 3:7). They never come to the truth because they do not apply it.
Truth must be allowed to have its way in our lives if we are going to grow and nature. It is not enough to give mental assent to it without obeying it. Even though we continue to learn, we never mature because of disobedience.
~~~~~John Bevere
