I, hope you all are having a great summer! I know that sometime we forget that the church still needs us doing this time. But let’s think about it this way! What if you were the only one that had the keys to the church, would we have church this Sunday? I read a number of articles this last week and it got me to thinking. Let me share a little with you! One was by Richard Land who is the president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. He was sharing from the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life, February 2010. This was the question, “How important would you say religion is in your life?” The response was as follows, Greatest {- 1928} 75% - Silent {1928-1945} 67% - Boomer {1946-1964} 60% - Gen X {1965- 1980} 52% - Millenial {1981 -} 40%. As I read this I begin to think, just how long will it be till Religion is out of our Life? That began to make me think about all our children that will be going to hell!! because we are too tried up with other thing to get ourselves and the kids to church. Jesus said in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me” I would ask you to remember what God said in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” This tells me it’s not too late for us. I, would ask that you use your key to the church and keep it open for the kids and the rest of us. Looking forward to seeing you in church the next time we open the doors. Till next time, may God bless and keep you safe.
