One of the things I miss about being a pastor is
entering the sanctuary on Monday morning to pray.
On that morning, the sanctuary is still filled with
the aroma of after shave lotions and perfume.
Inside the sanctuary on Monday morning is an
aroma of cleanliness and holiness.
Follow peace with all men, and holiness,
without which no man shall see the Lord:
LIGHT from the WORD.
The WORLD should experience the holiness of Christians!
Sadly, the church which is intended to be the showcase of God's glory
in the world, has developed a plumbing problem!
Gambling, abortion, adultery, drunkenness, abuse, profanity, divorce
are sins too often committed among members in good standing of
respected local churches.
Recently, I was traveling to Alexandria, La. and listening to a
Christian radio station.
In less than an hour, there were two advertisements by an attorney
on that station.
He was advertising his expertise in obtaining DIVORCES!
I wondered if Christians listening to that station had become
comfortable with hearing that advertisement!
The spirit of tolerance has too often triumphed over
the spirit of TRUTH in members of churches today.
And too many Christians exhibit marriage to the world
instead of exhibiting marriage to CHRIST.
H umble yourselves before God.
O pen your hearts to His leadership.
L earn of His will by studying the Bible.
I ntegrate His Word into your actions.
N ever bypass prayer.
E xhibit tenderness and care.
S erve Jesus in the church.
S erve Jesus in the world!
There's a song we used to sing in church:
LIVING FOR JESUS.
Living for Jesus a life that is true,
Striving to please Him in all that I do;
Yielding allegiance, glad-hearted and free,
This is the pathway of blessing for me.
O Jesus, Lord and Savior,
I give myself to Thee,
For Thou, in Thy [redemption],*
Didst give Thyself for me;
I own no other Master,
My heart shall be Thy throne,
My life I give, henceforth to live,
O Christ, for Thee alone.
May we sing the song by living the life!
Carry the aroma of holiness with you
but live in peacefulness not in haughtiness!
