Is the game on yet? What game? Why are people going crazy over a little game that is supposed to be played this afternoon? Who’s playing? Steelers, I guess, and whoever is going to loose.
I wish people would get this excited over God and Church services. Okay, maybe not showing up to Church in groups, wearing body paint with signs of “John 3.16.” Of course, it would be nice to pull into the parking lot and see a few tailgaters who couldn’t wait until the doors opened so they camped out. Now, wouldn’t that be something to see…
We are heading to church service this morning and tonight and no will not have a tv in the fellowship hall to watch the Superbowl. Personally, I am not a big fan of the whole sporting thing – I like golf, soccer, and hockey, but I barely watch those for more than 5 minutes. I would rather be in church than at a sporting event.
Sunday is like the Superbowl of the week.
I hope that this day finds each of your well and in God’s presence. For me, we are getting ready to head out for our morning routine. While we are getting ready, we listen to Elvis Gospel, in the car it’s bluegree, and for a few minutes before service starts, it’s country gospel. Of course, we stop at McDonald’s for our normal breakfast – 8 hashbrowns, 1 sausage mcmuffin with cheese, 2 iced mochas (this morning it is nonfat), and 1 spirit. The drive-thru attendant remembers us now, and is sharing with us her life in the Lord. We’ll have to invite her to our tent revival this May.
Let’s keep Christ ahead of us today, and look only upon Him no matter the situation. I have found that by looking upon Him, I miss a lot of things that would otherwise pull me down. If I take my eyes off of Him, I see too much – but If I continue to look upon Him, then I see all that I need to see.
The song below is sung by the Isaacs – can you guess why I like it?
