We have entered the lazy, hazy daze of summer.
I have been struck by the carefree attitude of so many people when it comes to faith in Christ. It seems that Sunday mornings are becoming that catch up day. A day when we don't have to 'come' and worship the King of kings and Lord of lords.
Frankly, I'm not sure what the answer is. Well, actually, I do, but to put it into action is always more difficult than giving the answer. For example, I was praying and asked for wisdom, which on the surface is always a good prayer request, but as I spit those words out, I knew there was a secondary request which had to be made . . . for courage to put the wisdom into motion.
You see, wisdom by itself is great, but it goes nowhere if we don't have the courage to do something about that wisdom God is imparting to us. My point is that when it comes to worshiping God, we all would agree it is the right thing, the best thing to do on a Sunday morning or a Saturday night; however, other things get in the way and we forget about the need to give ourselves to God in the holy and precious act of worship.
Summer brings vacations, trips to the lake, extra day excursions, and more. I'm not against vacations and taking a weekend trip, I am wondering how we would explain to God that we really don't need to worship Him on a Sunday, so we do something else. What if God took one hour off from His day? How would that impact your life?
As I say all this, I also know that I am at church about 48-50 Sundays per year. So, maybe you are thinking I am all off base on this. If I am just delete this email. If I'm not and you think I've got something, then consider what God is calling you to do in your life as it pertains to worshiping Him. He is awesome, He is our rock and our fortress. Praise Him! Praise Him! Do it today!
