A lady came and said… I won’t be attending Church anymore..
I said, may I ask why??
She said, I see people on their cell phones during the service, some are gossiping, some just ain’t living right, they are all just hypocrites…
I got silent, and i said, OK… But can I ask you to do something for me before you make your final decision?
She said, what’s that?
I said, take a glass of water and walk around the Church 2 times and don’t let any water fall out the glass.
She said, yes I can do that!
She came back and said it’s done.
I asked her 3 questions:
1. Did you see anybody on their phone?
2. Did you see anybody gossiping?
3. Was anybody living wrong?
She said, I didn’t see anything because I was so focused on this glass, so the water wouldn’t fall.
I told her, when you come to Church,you should be so focused on God,that YOU don’t fall. The Bible says “Guard your steps and focus on what you are doing as you go to the house of God and draw near to listen rather than to offer the [careless or irreverent] sacrifice of fools; for they are too ignorant to know they are doing evil.”
ECCLESIASTES 5:1 AMP
This means fools are also found in the house of God!
THAT’S WHY JESUS SAID “FOLLOW ME!!
He did not say follow Christians!
Don’t let your relationship with God be determined by how others relate with God. Let it be determined by how focused you are with God! Salvation is PERSONAL! That’s why the Jesus said “I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.”
Luke 17:34-36 KJV
Do you hear me?
