Is what you are living for worth dying for?

In church the other night a question was posed to the congregation. “Is what you are living for worth dying for?” If it’s not then its not worth living for either. Too many people work more than forty hours a week. They possibly have more than one job. Mom’s are working in order to provide better objects for their children, in addition to Hubby’s income. Are we sending the right message to our children? Are we saying that the new video game our kids want is worth our blood pressure from working too many hours? Are we allowing our children to understand its okay to go to the river on Sunday, after all God and consequently your soul is not as important as going out on the boat. After all, I’ve saved for five years and worked every Sunday for the past year, just so I could buy this boat.
Are we working to buy new toys or are we working to further the kingdom of God. Again I ask is what you are living for worth dying for?

Food for thought

When God moves you from something…. He always moves you too something.

After church yesterday while I was chilling between church services this thought came to my mind ans has not left me alone yet. So I decided to share it with you.

When churches split, I’m talking generally speaking, some members tend to follow others who left, some go their own way and find other churches, but yet there are and always will be those who do nothing. Yeah, they may tend to go to services sometimes, but the otherwise faithful attendee will not be as faithful. My question is this, did they get moved by God? or did they just follow along with the others and just decide to leave. My thoughts on the matter is this, one is supposed to find a body of believers to worship with and to glorify God. This is not always as easy said than done. But put on your big people’s pants and try. Do not give up on God, because someone who you considered a friend left, the pastor quit, the church ran off the pastor, or your feelings were hurt. The truth is, we are all human, we are going to screw up, make rash decisions, disappoint not only other people but ourselves as well. We are not perfect. BUT…. God is. He knew previously what was going to happen and he walked that road before the foundations of the earth was laid. . Joshua 1:9 says, ” Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

If this seems as if its speaking to you, maybe that’s the Holy Spirit of  God telling you to get back in church. He is not in churches splitting, but in unity. Don’t give up on God, he did not and will not give up on you.
