I once had an employee who hated the work that she did. Everyday she had to drag herself out of bed to go to work. She dreaded going to work. She felt like she didn’t get anything out of it. She looked for excuses not to show up. How many people do you know that feel the same way about going to church? How many people do you know that feel the same way about their faith. It’s something they know they should do. It’s something they know they have to do, but it’s not something that they wake up in the morning excited about doing.
In our church history, we’ve done a number of things very well. We’ve understood things in some areas very well. But we’ve also had a gap in what we were taught – and I can speak from personal experience – what I’ve been taught. And that gap has sapped life and excitement and vitality out of us. It’s like we’ve been running, running and running, but we haven’t had all of our batteries.
What I want to talk with all of you about this morning is something that – for those of you who are doing it, I think you will agree – for those of you who haven’t done it, or are just beginning – you’ll experience and see something in your faith and your life that is transforming – that will bring excitement, and a sense of purpose, and a vitality and a spiritual kind of a glowing that isn’t forced – that isn’t phony – but is genuine and it springs from the heart and the Spirit of God working in our lives. And I think we should ask questions about ourselves as individual Christians in our congregations.
