Ready for worship



Sunday morning has finally arrived, time to get ready for church, now letís see, which closet

Did I hang that new, pin-stripped , three- piece suit in? Oh yes, it is in the hall closet along with those new

Wing-tip shoes and that light tan colored shirt, oh and that new orange and brown tie. I bet old man Jones

Wonít have me out dressed today. Oh yes I must wear that new cologne too, after all that new sister Smith

Is going to sing in the choir for the first time today and I sure want to make a good impression on her. I Ďm

Sure glad I washed and waxed the car last night, I have to hurry though I want to park next to that Joe

Johnston , always trying to show off His new convertible, just wait till He sees my set of wheels. Now

Where did I put that new ultra- improved- updated- over- translated version of The Bible, carrying that to

Church should make an impression on the pastor and my Sunday School teacher too. I have to stop and

Buy a battery for that money clip I brought at the Christian book store, it plays ď When the saints go

Marching inĒ when you open it to take money out to put in the offering, that little cross on the front of

It lights up and flashes at the same time, that should let everyone around know that I am a thither. Yes

Iím sure ready for this morningís worship service, wait whatís this note on the dresser, where did that

Come from?, ď Dear Jim, please do not come to My House today, I would rather you stay home, although

I am sure you would be the best dressed, best smelling, outstanding person there today, I really think you

Have forgotten the most important and real reason I want you there. You are forgetting to bring your

Heart, filled with glory and praise to Me, just being thankful for the gift of My Son Jesus, and for the

Everyday joy in just knowing the presence of The Lord, thankful for each day of life with both big and

Small blessings. Donít misunderstand I want you to dress nice, smell good, give, serve and all the rest, but

I want those things to come from a heart filled with love and worship first of all for Me and then for

Others, when that happens then I will welcome you and all who come with a true heart of worship to

My House and into My Heart, your loving Heavenly Father God!

Very true story about how some people approach going to church. Nice response at the end. A little hard to read in the format displayed. Thanks for the reminder of what is important as we prepare to go to the house of the Lord.
