Hopefully, on the Lordís Day you will always make it priority to worship the Lord with the Lordís people wherever they assemble. And personally speaking, I think many Christians really miss on some great worship services by not attending while they are on vacation. Many Christians just skip church entirely when they are on vacation. They skip giving and they skip worship, but they are the losers.
I have attended some very good worship services by attending while on vacation.
ILL.- Twice I ran the Grandmaís marathon in Duluth, MN, and both times I attended a different church. One was an Evangelical Free Church (which I knew little about) and they had communion every Sunday just like we do and it was a very good service. Another time was 1990, I attended a service at a General Baptist Church and I remember that service as being outstanding even though we didnít observe the Lordís Supper. I was greeted warmly, made to feel at home, and the worship service was great with a great sermon. I WAS BLESSED.
I think any time you go to church, seeking the Lord in a church that preaches Christ you will be blessed in some form!
Acts 2:42 ďThey devoted themselves to the apostlesí teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.Ē
Acts 20:7 ďOn the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight.Ē
These two scriptures should tell the story about our lives when it comes to Sunday or the Lordís Day.
Today and tomorrow. What are you going to do tomorrow? Here is what we should do every day. What we all should do.
Col. 3:17 ďAnd whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.Ē
Christianity is or should be a 24/7 relationship. We should live it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And every day should be a day in which we seek to bring glory to God in some way.
We are here for Him! We were created for His glory. God gives us life, breath, every good and perfect gift, and the grand prize of eternal life with no pain, no sorrow, no sin, no shame, etc. Is it then asking too much to live for His glory in this life?
PROP.- James gives us the proper perspective for life.
1- Donít be quick to make plans in life
2- Recognize how quickly life disappears
3- Seek the Lordís will in all things
4- Acknowledge the sin of doing nothing
I. DONíT BE QUICK TO MAKE PLANS IN LIFE
13 Now listen, you who say, ďToday or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.Ē 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life?
Are you planner? Most folks are to some extent. Although there are some people who take off on a driving vacation and only have a general idea or direction of where they are going. Are you like that? I prefer to plan where Iím going. I donít like sudden surprises and particularly when they are not good surprises.
Regardless of whether we are vacation planners or not, we need to be planners in life. We need to plan the direction in which we are heading in life.
Today and tomorrow we will go here or there,
