Daily Devotional – 9/11/11 “Isn’t this God’s house”

1 Corinthians 11:17-33 was written by Paul about the conduct of Christians Worshipping. Verse 17-18 says that when we come into God’s house it’s mostly for the mess not the message. That when we enter into God’s house, we come in divided. Choir members fighting, deacons not getting along & ushers not serving and then we wonder why we leave like we came.

Don’t you know the church is in you? You are suppose to come into God’s house with a praise already in your heart and on your lips but instead you got both filled with gossip. You are so busy talking about what folk got on, who went where last night and whose sleeping with who that you don’t even realize when God is talking to you. You’re so busy texting during service that if God sat right next to you, you wouldn’t notice. You’re so busy looking at folk, talking & playing at the Altar that your prayers aren’t getting through and then you say God ain’t hearing me! Chile, God ain’t got time to deal with your mess every Sunday. He’d rather have 2 genuine worshipers than 56 unworthy ones. At some point & time you’ve got to be accountable for you. You’ve got to get yourself up for Worship service, pay your own tithes, pray for yourself! Stop gossiping and start glorifying God. Stop complaining! If every time a non Christian come to you & you’re complaining what good are they seeing in coming to God? Most times the only God they get is what you’re giving them but if you’re too busy texting during worship service how can you relay the message to others? God ain’t texting and whoever it is can surely wait until after church.

John 6:53-54 .. Jesus said unto them “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”

Choose the side you’re standing on. You can’t have one foot in the world and one on God because he doesn’t deal in halves only whole!
