I’ll be honest, the only reason that I am actually posting today is that a friend (you know who you are) kept bugging me about it.
So, if you’re here expecting a really well thought out, interesting, profound or exciting post…you might want to just stop here. There are no doubt mistakes in this, but I decided to write about something I have been thinking about a lot.
Tomorrow is Sunday, the Lord’s day. For me, that means church, fellowship with his people and hearing His word faithfully preached.
I want to challenge you; tomorrow, let’s be doers of the word and not just hearers, let’s strive to not just half-heartedly go through the motions. Whether you are in church or not.
It can be so easy to go to church, sing the songs, pray the prayers, give the hugs. How often is our heart truly in it? How often when we sing the words, “take my life and let it be,” do we honestly mean it? How often do we pray, simply because we feel we have to? How often are we at church just because its what a Christian is supposed to do?
I want to challenga you to ask someone how their walk with Christ is going, ask someone how you can pray for them, look for ways to serve.
I’m not trying to preach, I’m not trying to point fingers at anyone. You’ve probably heard this one, but remember, “whenever you point your finger at someone, three fingers are pointing back at you.” I have no idea who originally said that, but it’s true nonetheless. Jesus said in John 8:7 “He that is without sin among you, let him be the first to cast a stone at her.” I’d encourage you to go read that chapter and get the context of that verse.
He’s reminding us that we are all sinners, wretched sinners that deserve nothing but his wrath, none of us are better than anyone.
This is my challenge, which I have challenged myself with, and I encourage you to do the same. Tomorrow and for the rest of the week, for the rest of the month, for the rest of the year, for the rest of your life, let’s be salt and light to this world, let’s serve our God.
