The office is quiet. I don’t know about you, but trying to get through these hours are a bit of Chinese torture. It’s the middle of the week. We’re all earning a living, carving out a place for ourselves, and wishing to be known, even a little bit.
The mortgage is due. The electric and gas are past due. Your church says give, give, give. What is left to give? Who are you serving? God or the church?
Can I tell you a little secret?
God knows your need. Turn to Him.
How do you know Him?
Start with the Book of John.
Human beings have tried to add things to God since the beginning of time. We try to make things more complicated than they ought to be because, well, we think, deep down, it should hurt to love and we feel that God is a lot like our human parents: earn the love. Get good grades. Do well at work. Give, and give some more until your soul is empty.
God gave us the ultimate atonement. A free gift.
Yet, because our human parents had strings attached to their gifts, we think God must, too.
The Christian church isn’t like the Mormon church (Click to learn the difference).
God isn’t like your parents.
He’s whispering in your soul, “Talk to me. Read about me. I’ve always been here.”
So in the quiet of the day, the hours stretching long into late afternoon, turn up your computer speakers and rock out!
