It is true Christianity in America is declining, but that does not mean that the house of God has to decline. Gone are the days when people would come to church because it was something they always did. Gone are the days when stores were closed on Sundays and there were no sports practices or games.
Our society has lost sight of the importance of God and the church, but that does not make God or the church any less significant. It means that like the Gentiles in the church of Ephesus, we have to figure out a new way to practice our faith, a faith that conveys our hearts are for the Lord. We have to continue to practice our faith that builds up the kingdom of God and does not tear it down.
