A matter of life and death

When one of my sons, as a toddler, required stitches, I rushed him to the doctor's office, convinced that we were dealing with an emergency. But  the doctor calmly waited until the waiting room had cleared out so that no one else would have to hear the screaming of a little one being stitched up (or maybe it was his mother who did the wailing). No, the gash our son took to his forehead that day did not constitute an emergency; it was not a matter of life or death.

Sometimes we think something is urgent and it’s not.  But more often, the opposite happens: we fail to see the urgency of the matter; we become complacent about our broken relationships and about our walk with God. When something stands between us and God, don’t ignore it, for it could be a matter of life and death.  Jesus is ready to heal, and then he’s ready to help you with that project you’re working on.  You know the one- the project that displays God’s glory in you. 

This Sunday we welcome our Cadets boys' club and their participation in the worship service. The message is from Mark 3:1-6 and from the Cadets' theme for the year, Philippians 4:1-6. Sunday, March 23, 10 a.m.
