Who Died?

Just imagine that someone very close to you died…and the day of their funeral, you decided you were tired and would just sleep in that day and skip the funeral or maybe you had taken a job and had to work that day or maybe company came and you stayed home with them. Do you think that decision would persuade anyone that you were really close to that person…or that you even cared for them at all?

Well,Someone did die…and that Someone did it because He loved us so very much that He gave up, not only His life, but also His equality with God, (Philippians 2:5-8) to be our Savior and take our sins away on that cross (if we obey Him.)

Many do not even accept Him and obey Him…but many who do, eventually let their dedication slide and when the church meets together they cannot be depended on to be there. Jesus will be there…every time the church meets.   Matthew 18:20:  “… For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

Just to put it in perspective as much as humanly possible…imagine that it is one of your parents’ memorial service, or your baby’s…Would you skip the funeral?

We are told, yea commanded….to love God even more than we love our family. (Matthew 10:37) People wonder why their children fall away when they are grown up. Our children need to see that the kingdom of God is our greatest concern in life…then when they grow up it will be their greatest concern too…if they are trained in the way they should go. Proverbs 22:6

Note: Motivated by one of Cara Lynn’s wise sayings, back in the 1980’s, before she passed away in ’90.
