Thought for Today: “Church as a Delight”
Let me start by telling you a story.
One Sunday, a pastor stood before those of his congregation on Super Bowl Sunday, all four of them: three women and one young man.
The pastor began his sermon by saying, “I give thanks to God that there are at least a handful who have made the effort to come and worship the Lord, to feed on God’s word, and who don’t believe that God is less important than the Super Bowl game on TV.”
Immediately the young man jumped up and said, “Oh my goodness, I forgot about the game,” and ran out of the sanctuary.
This got me wondering, is there something better to do than to gather as a church family and worship the Lord? Aren’t there chores to do, books to read, movies to see, games to watch, and web sites to surf, and outdoor outings to take? I mean, what motivates us to abandon our TV sets, computer screens and golf clubs to come to a Sunday morning worship service?
But for King David, coming into the house of God with those within the family of faith was his desire and delight.
He said, “I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.” (Psalm 122:1)
I think it’s time we change our thinking about what’s important and make kingdom living a priority.
