Finishing an earlier post

2 Dec

Whenever I write this blog, it is coming straight out of my mind onto the screen.  There is no calculation.  No strategy.  It really is a log of my thoughts.  (Yes, that can be dangerous)  And sometimes I leave things undone.

Several weeks ago I posted this blog entry:

In this entry, I quoted this idea:

“Much of how friendly ANY church is lies in WHAT YOU TAKE INTO THE DOOR.  In other words, how friendly are you???  How open are you to meeting new people?  Telling them YOUR name???  At the very least, we all have a responsibility to bring our best to worship.”  This quote was in the context of some folks that I care deeply about who had a really rough experience at EBC.  I would never want anyone to mistake what I wrote here, so let me elaborate on it!

EVERYTIME WE (Ebenezer) ENTER THE DOOR OF OUR CHURCH WE MUST BRING OUR BEST OR WE FAIL GOD.  PERIOD.  Most times when folks wash out of a congregation, there are multiple failures of THE ENTIRE CHURCH BRINGING THEIR BEST.

The entire moral of this is:  IF WE (YOU AND ME) FAIL TO BRING OUR BEST TO WORSHIP AND TO EVERYTHING WE DO AS A CHURCH, WE FAIL GOD AND WEAKEN HIS KINGDOM.  And people get hurt.

We ALL must bring our best.
