Monday Morning Musings...

Another Monday morning, another chance for reflection and the most recent Sunday. Yesterday was a very good day in many ways. We had many who made decisions to totally surrender themselves to the Lord! We had at least one decision to accept Christ as personal savior! That is what it is all about. We had good times of worship and it was not our normal leadership. A young man in our church led worship with his Christian band. So it was just guitars and drums, and it was great. I really enjoyed it. There was a very good spirit in the service. Once again we had a major technical glitch. The person who was singing a special in song was unable to because though it worked perfectly in practice would not work during the service. Fortunately it did not kill the spirit as it has too many other times. We had good attendance with many regulars missing. We had a couple of families return for a second Sunday.

Sunday evening we a missionary from the Caribbean region. He did a nice job of giving us a picture of the work in part of his region and of letting us know how we can be involved in more than one way. He shared some amazing stories and facts about Haiti in particular.

After our morning service and hearing some of the missionary's stories it left me feeling somewhat frustrated. Frustrated with the fact that we moving so slowly in seeing lives changed in our community. Frustrated that we are begging to have people get involved in service. Frustrated that some many people who claim to be followers of Christ can be so casual about their relationship with Christ.

I don't know how much time I have left, or how much time any of the lost in our community have left and therefore I don't have time to waste. So what will we do? What will I do? What will you do?

The answer is:

We do what we can, when we can, for whoever we can...and I'm glad you're frustrated...I wish more people were. Frustration is a great motivator sometimes, isn't it?
