The warmth was gone from the services. It had been replaced with the coldness of routine. All of the joy, that was once here, seemed to have left. They should be excited about the Lord and doing His will, but instead, they sit here as statues following their schedule without flaw.
The preacher finished a very politically correct message. <i> Doesn’t anyone care that people are attacking this Christian nation?</i> The musicians started playing as he called for an invitation. <i>An invitation to what? Jesus was never even mentioned.</i>
As I surveyed the room, I saw Mark, a young man of the church, coming forward. I shook my head knowing what he would say when he spoke. He would apologize for his unchristian-like behavior, because he was caught. The only thing on his mind was who would be at the next party.
While the show finished and final prayer was given, I sat in the corner stunned. My tears flowed freely as the countless souls filed out and went their own ways. These people say, “Ow!” when they stub their toe. They have no idea what pain is, or how my heart breaks as I watch them live their lives. I am still here and I still love them.
