Sunday is Funday
Sunday is usually the best day in my week. I love that I get to spend time with close friends in Christ. I worship through music, preaching and teaching. I know a few people who would call themselves believers and do not go to church. Some say that they think it is boring. Others say that it doesn’t help them in their spiritual journey. But the majority say that they’ve been wounded by the church.
Before I was in the ministry I thought that everyone had their lives together. People would walk into church with their Sunday best and smiles on their faces (like the cartoon). I thought they were people that had everything together. Then I got into ministry.
People that I saw as problem-less started coming to me for their problems. And it didn’t take me long to figure out that church is made up of sinful people just like you and I . We all have struggles with sin and sometimes we break to its power and that can cause pain for others around us.
If you are one of those people who have been hurt by church I would urge you to be forgiving and go back. I cannot promise you that any church wont hurt you. I can’t guarantee that the perfect church is out there. But what I can give you is the encouragement that Hebrews 10: 24-25 gave to me.
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” -ESV
I pray this is encouraging to you because I know that church has encouraged me.
