Wake-Up Call


 

It is not unusual for a sports team to experience a long string of victories and then suddenly get beat by a team everyone considered to be very much inferior. In the post-game commentaries, the analysts say, “This defeat was a wake-up call.” The idea being the coaches and players needed a painful loss to remind them to be prepared not just for the tough opponents, but for all opponents. 

It is difficult to maintain an intense, urgent vigilance in any area of our lives, but especially so in our relationship with God. When our lives are pain and trouble free, there develops unknowingly a complacent attitude towards the spiritual war going on within us. Evil doesn’t seem all that evil and God doesn’t seem all that important. We just take it for granted he is there and that he will keep sending the physical blessings we crave. 

Periodic wake-up calls from God are not only necessary, but they are also a blessing. Without them we can very easily slide into a deep freeze relationship with our God and lose the greatest blessing he has given us – eternal life. If all that sounds like scare tactics, think back to some of the wake-up calls you’ve experienced in other areas of your life. They were important, weren’t they? What could be more important than the God who made you, who saved you to be with him forever, giving you a wake-up call to bring you back to him? 

Whether you might need a God wake-up call or not, join us for one of our worship services this weekend. Not one of us can hear often enough the urgency of Jesus Christ’s call to follow him. 

Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.

Leakage

 


It seems like so little. A single drop every 15 seconds or so. Yet, over time a leaky faucet will waste thousands of gallons of water. 

The little things in life add up, especially in our relationship with God. With so much to do every day, it’s easy to start leaking. Spiritual leakage begins in small, unnoticeable ways: not reading the Bible for periods of time, stale prayers, small moral compromises here and there, and maybe most damaging – too much fun doing our own thing. 

God slowly becomes less and less relevant to our daily lives so that when we do think about him at all, he seems more like a cosmic force than our personal Creator and Savior. When tragedy hits, our first reaction is to blame him rather than run to him. 

Worship is about fixing the leaks, stopping them up and recommitting ourselves to not only acknowledge Christ as our Savior but to live each day with him as the Lord of our lives. Remember, leaks are ultimately a waste, they don’t do anyone any good. The time to fix them is now. Each weekend we offer three worship opportunities. This Sunday, however, we encourage you to join us at 10:30 am for a special worship service of powerful music and Bible readings. It will be just the kind of thing to fill up a soul empty from leakage. 

Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
