"Nearer, o my God to You,
instead of all the things You do...
My focus, Lord, on You to be
and not the things You give to me...
my call to love all kinds of men,
instead of building a worship den...
o stable me, but one time more,
o God, on what You made me for."
"Come over here! We have the best
in video and sound..."
"No! Come here! For we have coffee
that is freshly ground..."
"The governor comes to OUR church!
You ought to hear him speak!"
"O GOD! PLEASE MAKE YOUR HOUSE AGAIN
WHERE IT IS YOU WE SEEK!!"
How did we get to this place
where we compete for souls?
The church to be a comfort zone
where there are few controls?
But take us back into God's house
to seek what pleases HIM!
Praying for His will and not
just moving on a whim.
We are all in this together. If you are saved and belong to The Church, you are there on Sunday to worship and serve God first and foremost. Excuse me, we SHOULD be there to worship and serve God first and foremost. Second, we SHOULD be learning more about Him and how to reach others with His love. If we are only going to church for a sweet hour of entertainment, we have greatly missed our purpose AND His.
