We missed you in Sunday School!

Author: Brad  |  Category: Boardman Views, Faith, Family

Tomorrow’s Sunday!

It’s the day of the week that I hope we all look forward to the most.

“Why?” you say.

In my case, certainly not because it’s a day of rest! At least, not until the afternoon when I typically collapse on my bed and drift in and out of never-never-land while attempting to watch PGA golfers duke it out on some gorgeous course somewhere.

(By the way, how about Tiger’s pull-it-out-of-the-fire performance…uh…again…last Sunday?)

No, not because it’s a day of rest, but because we (e.i., you and I) GET TO go to church and worship the living and true God! With each other! In broad daylight! Without fear!

I am, of course, speaking to those of us who have the untold privilege of living in, not only Boardman Country 🙂 , but these United States of America! Feel free to click here for some little-known information about some folks who CAN’T go to church tomorrow due to their continuing desire to stay alive.

Now, I will say that I am speaking from the vantage point of a truly born again, Bible-believing, Spirit-baptized, tongues-talking, Pentecostal-flavored Christian. But that just tells you why I worship at Abundant Life Christian Fellowship in Everett, Washington. You can either join us there at 9:00 a.m (where I’ll be teaching from the book of Exodus), OR you GET TO go…Come on, say it with me, “I GET TO go…” wherever you and the Lord have decided is the right place for you to be “plugged in.”

I told you I pastored for nine years!

The point is that you DO get up and GO. I realize full well that you’re not going to go just because I said to. For many of you it will take AN ACT OF GOD to get you into His house. But believe me, the living and true God is willing and able to perform one of His acts to cause you to “forsake not the assembling of yourselves together.” Best to just get there on your own! 🙂

Excuses, excuses, you’ll hear them every day.
And the Devil he’ll supply them, if from church you stay away.
When people come to know the Lord, the Devil always loses
So to keep them folks away from church, he offers them excuses.

In the summer it’s too hot. And, in the winter, it’s too cold.
In the spring time when the weather’s just right, you find some place else to go.
Well, it’s up to the mountains or down to the beach or to visit some old friend.
Or, to just stay home and kinda relax and hope that some of the kin folks will start dropping in.

Well, the church benches are too hard. And, that choir sings way to loud.
Boy, you know how nervous you get when your’re sitting in a great big crowd.
The doctor told you, “Now, you better watch them crowds. They’ll set you back.”
But, you go to that old ball game because you say “It helps you to relax.”

Well, a headache Sunday morning and a backache Sunday night.
But by worktime Monday morning, you’re feeling quite alright.
While one of the children has a cold, “Pneumonia, do you suppose?”
Why the whole family had to stay home, just to blow that poor kid’s nose.

Well, the preacher he’s too young. And, maybe he’s too old.
The sermons they’re not hard enough. And, maybe they’re too bold.
His voice is much too quiet-like. Sometimes he gets too loud.
He needs to have more dignity. Or, else he’s way too proud.

Well, the sermons they’re too long. And, maybe they’re too short.
He ought to preach the word with dignity instead of “stomp and snort.”
Well, that preacher we’ve got must be “the world’s most stuck up man.”
Well, one of the lady’s told me the other day, “Well, he didn’t even shake my hand.”

Excuses, excuses, you’ll hear them every day.
And the Devil he’ll supply them if the church you stay away.
When people come to know the Lord, the Devil always loses
So to keep them folks away from church, he offers them excuses.

Once again, enough said. I know I’ve gone to meddlin’!

You’re in Boardman Country!

Make yourself at home,

Brad
