It Is A Matter of Perspective
I remember in my pre-Christian days how hard it was for me to get out of bed on a Sunday morning to go to a church assembly. It was a real chore for me because I would rationalize how tired I was and how little sleep I got the night before. However, if the poor night sleep was on a “work day” I would always muster the energy to get out of bed and go to work. Why? Well, work was a priority to me and my boss might find someone else to do my job. The employer says, “Be here!” We say, “Yes.” God says, “Be here!” We are tempted to hit the snooze button. After I became a Christian I came to understand the value of being with God’s people as much as possible for public worship and study. I still found on some Sunday mornings it to be a challenge to get out of bed, but I did because it became a spiritual priority. I thought, what if the Lord said, “I don’t feel like going to the Cross today?” His decision to love me drove Him to the Cross. The secret in my getting out of bed and looking forward going to the worship assemblies boils down to my perspective before going to bed the night before. Do I love the Lord and appreciate what He did for me on the cross? What a blessing to be able to meet together to praise the Lord and lift up God in song and prayer.
