“…This started a ground-swell of controversy in the ‘Letters to the Editor’ column…”

Image result for caricature of a little "country church."Have I been wasting my time going to Church every Sunday? If you’re spiritually alive, you’re going to love this! If you’re spiritually dead, you won’t care to read it. If you’re spiritually curious, there is still hope!

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 priests are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.’

This started a ground-swell of 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!

When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, ‘Jesus, could you get that for me…… while I forward this message to your children?

IF YOU CANNOT SEE GOD IN ALL…. YOU CANNOT SEE GOD AT All.  (This MUST mean that God is part of “all” of us)                        Author: Unknown 

The 4th Commandment: Exodus 20:8-11 – Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

….Blessings…cjlb.6/10/15.
