I would like a bit of meat.
Not the fluff we are being fed.
Being a pastor is not a career people. It is a calling. SO listen to and follow God or get off the box.
UPDATE: Today at church one of our pastors did a sermon that had conviction to it. I think it applicable to my above rantings. Anyhow, here is the verse that our lady pastor quoted.
“Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”
15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
Usually I underline parts of a verse that I find to be vital. In this case, it should ALL be underlined. I feel that these verses speak to the culture of church that Americans have created. It saddens my soul. We are all asleep. AWAKE SLEEPER! Be Careful, be wise, make the most of EVERYTHING.
Stop doing ___________ as if it matters for eternity. (Insert: Blogging, Watching Ball Games, Watching TV, manicuring your lawn to perfection, sewing, Facebooking ect ect ect...)
I am not saying that I am a perfect Christian. Or even close to it. I just expect the leaders in our church to not be more consumed with this world than I am.
Christians WAKE UP!
