I was asked recently whether I go to church.
I said not very often. Then came the discussion. It ALWAYS does.
Don’t you believe, is it not important, are you too important, are you too busy doing other things like going to breakfast with friends or wait for it…. golf.
I guess our family was not one for going to church regularly. It finally stopped,the little we did go,when we came home to a burned roast in the oven!! Mum never forgave God for that one!!
Seriously though, my church is in my heart. It’s in me, it’s who I am, faults and all., and faults I have a few.
There have been many discussions over the years, I know many good people who go to church, and then there are the others. The ones that sometimes you ask yourself,why do they go,is it for show, because they are not the nicest of people. The spirit of goodness is absent.
Off course people go to church for all sorts of personal reasons.
It’s just that, because I don’t go doesn’t make me a non believer or a bad person.
It doesn’t, either make those that do go into the righteous either.
Honestly, I dont know if I will pass the test and get to heaven, I am certain it wont be because I didnt worship in church.
All of our tests will be based on our goodness and our hearts and a purposeful life that we shared to do good.
Did we do right by our friends our workmates,our neighbors in our thoughts and in our intentions.
I, like all you readers, will have our day and will be found wanting or not.
For me though my church is within me, every single moment of my life, and that my reader is many more minutes of my life that I give to my Lord, and that’s a lot of Sundays.
So next when you question someone about not attending church on a Sunday, perhaps they were busy doing the lord’s work and you were not looking.
