It’s funny to watch two children staring at the last slice of pizza or the last piece of birthday cake, trying to decide who will get it. Even as adults, we find ourselves racing other people to the closest parking space, or arranging details to be sure we get with the biggest portion of a business deal. When we let our desires lead us instead of asking God for direction, we will never end up where He wants us to be. So, what is driving your choices in life right now?
Saved and Sent
It is a sad commentary indeed that so many church members today actually believe the church exists for them — to entertain them and their children every Sunday and to provide endless activities. The very fact that so many people believe this is proof that the church has lost its way and abandoned the mission given to it by Jesus. We have not been saved to huddle together happily in our well-lit room while the darkness outside grows ever darker. We have been saved and sent!
