E-Cheer: Get With It

These things "wonder me" -- Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard; Why is
lemon juice made with artificial flavor and dishwashing liquid made
with real lemons; why do they call it "chili" if it's hot; did Noah keep
his bees in archives? -- think about it.. This is profound stuff.

Somewhere in our travels I heard a song on the car radio that had words
like this, "Everyone wants to sit at my table, but no one wants to work
in my fields." Wow, did that sound like a familiar scenario. Think
about it -- doesn't that describe many churches, maybe yours, I hope
not.

You've heard it before -- "The church is full of willing people. A few
are willing to work, and the rest are willing to let them." Sound
familiar? "Many hands make light work" is an old, old phrase, but too
often it's a few hands doing the bulk of the work. It's so easy to just
give money and let someone else do it.

In spite of this malady, our churches still survive because there are
always a faithful few who pull hard on the oars to get any job done.
Thank the Lord for the worker bees in our churches. Some can't sing,
preach, teach or even pray publicly, but they really have cleaning the
kitchen down pat. Lord, bless them abundantly -- they're willing to
work hard for you without fanfare or applause -- only an occasional
"Thank you" -- very occasional.

Six times in Revelation, John says (as in 3:13 niv), "Anyone who is
willing to hear should listen to the Spirit and understand what the Spirit
is saying to the churches." If we transpose that to our day, I can
imagine the Spirit of God saying to us in the church: "Get With It!"

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
