In a multi-site church like ours, ministries are plentiful and opportunities abound. However, let me remind all of us today: Everything Builds Toward Sunday!
We Cannot Be Distracted.
If we are not extremely intentional, we can become so busy doing many good things such as acts of compassion, or Bible Studies, or mentoring a younger person in the faith, that we become distracted from focusing on Sunday.
Please remember: Everything Builds Toward Sunday!
We Cannot Become Cause Driven.
One of the uniquenesses of today’s church versus in the past is that people are cause driven. People hear about a cause or become involved in a cause.
Again, this is a good thing, but we cannot be driven by our causes. We can only be driven by Jesus’ commission, His Great Commission: Going, Winning, Baptizing,and Discipling.
Whatever we are involved in during the week relating to any good cause, we must remember: Everything Builds Toward Sunday!
Why Do We Do What We Do? Everything Builds Toward Sunday!
Scripture says Sunday is The Lord’s Day: Each Sunday is Resurrection Sunday!
The church gathering in obedience to God’s Word to celebrate weekly the death, burial and the victorious resurrection of Jesus Christ over death is why we worship on Sunday!
Sundays are not for the things of this world that distract us from it: leisure, recreation and, yes, even family time. Sundays are for Worship!
Sunday is about Life Change!
Every act of compassion we are involved in during the week, or Bible Study we teach or attend, or mentoring session we conduct or participate in, or cause related matter we think is important must all conclude with an ask and an arrow!
The ask: Will you join me this Sunday in worship?
The arrow: Listen, we are doing what we are doing because we believe in Jesus’ church that gathers for worship on Sundays and we want you to join our spiritual family this Sunday!
Listen friends, there is nothing like Sunday! As the church gathers to worship Jesus Christ, lives are changed!
