It’s Saturday Night you’ve looked at all the ads online,  times and order scheduled, alarm clock set.  You can hardly sleep from the anticipation of the morning to come.  With the buzzing of the alarm clock you spring out of bed, jump in the shower, get dressed and run out the door.  As you approach your destination the parking lot is so full you can’t find a place to park.  Some people have been in line since Friday night just so they get in.  You start to panic and wonder if you will ever get inside.  Finally, you spot one lone parking spot it’s about a mile away from the door in Scooby Doo row 35.  You race into the parking spot, do a mad dash to the end of the line that seems to go on for miles and miles.  Your heart is pounding your out of breath but wait what is this; the line starts moving.

What am I describing?  Christians on a Sunday Morning going to the corner church.

As God’s children we are supposed to be a reflection of Him.  People are watching us and wondering what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ.  Unfortunately, we have few that are disciples who forsake all and put God first place in their life.  Matthew 7:13-14 Enter by the narrow gate.  For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.  For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are you ask; no, I am sorry it’s not November and it’s not Black Friday.  It’s all people who claim to be believers rushing to get into the Sunday Morning Service at the corner church.  It’s people rushing the doors who can’t wait to hear about and worship God in perfect community.  While this is a fictional story, it’s hard to believe that this would ever happen.  Why?  As human beings we put our energy into what interests us.  For some, it’s the rush of getting the good sales on the latest material items we have.  It’s getting a ticket to the Super Bowl or a Nascar Race.  Friends, where is your heart?  Whom do you serve?

Friends, when we submit our lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ that is not an easy walk but it is a worthy walk.  In order to be Jesus’ disciples we’ve got to lay our own personal desires and wants down and put His first.

I encourage you to become a radical disciple of Jesus Christ today.  Be His reflection to people who are watching you today.

Praise Him! Amen!

    I just tweeted this morning that we often don’t desire to turn the world off to seek Him. Let’s get radical!
