More Than Sundays

Many people who profess to be Christians also believe that merely attending services on the major holidays …. Christmas, Easter, and perhaps when there is a special service or a visiting speaker …. is good enough.

Others believe if they give God a couple of hours on Sunday, He ought to be happy with that.  Besides the Cowboy’s game starts almost the same time as the sermon is ending and perhaps the preacher speaks too long.

Now don’t get me wrong …. God does not need you in services on Sunday. But you need to be there. We need to worship as a cooperate body. We need the support of other believers. We need to build up the “body of Christ” which is the church (Ephesians 1:22-23). We support each other in the Lord.

Other people only have a “Sunday Jesus.” They don’t look for Him on the other six days of the week …. that is, until they need Him.

So make a commitment …. what better place to be on Sunday than in worship with other believers!

But it doesn’t stop there.

Being a Christian means discipleship. It means giving up something to follow the Lord. Jesus wants to be involved with every aspect of our lives and this includes what we do with our time. When Jesus said to his disciples, “follow me”  (Matthew 16:24) — He meant that to be 24/7—Barbara Hyland
