Daily Meditations: Inspiration Is Not The Anointing

Daily Meditations: Inspiration Is Not The Anointing

By Reno Omokri | Op-Ed Contributor on February 9, 2014

There is a big difference between faith and inspiration.

Faith can move mountains, but inspiration will move you not the mountain and you will go back home to face the mountain.

An anointed sermon is less exciting than an inspiring sermon, but it will transform your life long after you’ve forgotten about the inspirational message.

The church should not be a place where we go to get inspired. It should also not be a source of enough religion to placate our conscience. It should be a place for transformation, where we are taught how to tap into God’s powers rather than how to tap into our own inner powers.

Every information that does not lead to transformation is entertainment.Unfortunately, that is what many have turned the church into-a place where we come to dance to songs, listen to inspiring messages, say amen to miraculous prayers and return home to do the same things we did last week.

Addressing people’s sins and the issues in their lives may affect church numbers and therefore the amount of offerings and tithes a church receives, however, we should remember that we are in a race and when you are practicing for a race it is necessary for you to shed extra weight so that you are lean and fit because only the lean and fit win the race and wear the crown.
