what perfect timing

Yesterday our preacher mentioned an editorial article in the Crimson White. It was a totally useless article, one of wasted time in writing and publishing, much less reading. However, it had some great points (lessons on how NOT to live). However, it brings me to a more useful editorial article:

Why  Go To Church?
A  Church goer wrote  a letter to the  editor of a  newspaper and complained that it made no sense  to go to church every Sunday.  “I’ve gone for 30 years now,” he wrote, “and in  that time I have heard something like 3,000  sermons.  But for the life of me, I can’t  remember a single one of them..  So, I  think I’m wasting my time and the pastors are  wasting theirs by giving sermons at  all.” 

This  started a real controversy in the “Letters to  the Editor” column, much to the delight of the  editor.  It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:

“I’ve  been married for 30 years now.  In that  time my  wife has cooked some 32,000 meals.   But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the  entire menu for a single one of those  meals.  But I do know this.. They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed  to do my work.  If my wife had not given me  these meals, I would be physically dead  today.

Likewise, if I had not gone to  church for nourishment, I would be spiritually  dead today!”  When you are DOWN to  nothing….. God is UP to something!  Faith  sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!  Thank God for our  physical AND our spiritual nourishment!

Next time you decide to skip out on church . . . think . . . do I really want to miss another meal?

When  Satan is knocking at your  door,  simply  say,
“Jesus,  could you get that for  me?”
