|God Loves You|
“Celebrate the Feast of unleavened Bread; for seven days eat bread made without yeast, as I commanded you. Do this at the appointed time in the month of Abib, for in that month you came out of Egypt. No one is to appear before me empty-handed.” Exodus 23:14. NIV.
TODAY'S PROBLEMATIC CELEBRATION
We live in an entertainment culture where we go to “get;” to be amused or edified. We want our church to offer a sermon (hopefully one that is not too troubling to our conscience) with a few laughs and memorable stories. We want the child care to be clean and happy and the fellowship hour to be well stocked with fresh cookies. It is tragic that today’s Christianity has turned away from the example of our Lord who “came not to be served but to serve and give his life as a ransom for many.”(Matthew 20:28).
THE ANCIENT COMMAND
|Do Not Come Before Me Empty Handed, Exodus 23:4|
When you come to community worship you will be able to sing from your heart to the Lord since He has been close to your heart all week long. You will be able to pray silently and say amen to the prayers offered by others. When you bring an offering of a full heart to the community worship service and give it to God you will take away a heart full of blessing far exceeding what you brought.
