Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

August 13th, 2011


 

I’m writing this note ahead of time, but I can pretty much guess that right now I’m wishing I were there in class with you.

 

Every time we go on vacation we always make it a point to never miss church. This time, when we were planning, we almost couldn’t find a church, and finally spotted one about an hour away! It certainly won’t be like home with our “family” though.

 

Do you think that’s too far to drive to church? A couple thoughts on that…

  1. Maybe someone from the Teens of Faith should go start a church in Central California some day.
  2. Maybe a lot of people would say, “Nah. Let’s just skip church tonight. It’s too far!”

I hope you don’t take such a low view of church as if it can be skipped any time you feel like it. Make church a priority in your life. NEVER miss it, unless you’re deathly ill.

 

You want my opinion? No, Bro. Ryan. You’re not even here… you shouldn’t be allowed to share your opinion. Well you don’t have to read on if you don’t want…

 

My opinion is that too many people come up with too many LAME excuses for missing church! Sick? Come on! Tired? Please! Didn’t feel like it? Now you’re being wicked!

 

If you ever study the military or watch shows on what some of those guys go through the get into their special forces, it sure is amazing what a proper mindset about what they’re doing will push them to do. Those guys absolutely kill themselves for the things they believe in. Would you do that?

 

 

“I’m sick. I’m tired.” What you’re saying is, “God doesn’t matter to me near as much as some patch on the sleeve of the Rangers, SEALS, or Air Rescue Team matters to them.”

 

I LOVE that our military men are proud of what they do. Are you that committed?

 

Choose to be.

 

Man! Now I want to come home and preach that! We love and miss you. Do right until we return. (Oh yeah, and after that, too!)

 

-Bro. Ryan
