And since everything on the farm is in perfect order, what needs to be done is to put my own self in order and the first order of the day is to attend church. Making that commitment each Sunday is one which is important since God wants us to be a part of his human community. Nowhere can the community of God be more appropriate than at church. And I know that some say that Sunday morning is a good time to sleep in and relax, but that's a cop out.
You see, life is meant to be lived. And if we really want to live we will live for Him. That's His request of us. He makes the flowers and the scenery and everything that we love available for us but he asks us to live our lives for Him. After all, didn't Jesus Christ die on the Cross so that we might live. So get out of bed, sleepy head, get ready and go to church and show Him how much you appreciate his gift of life. And oh, by the way, if you truly make the commitment to live for Him, you will live forever, for life on this earth is just a temporary passage in your eternity.
If you make the effort and the commitment, the joy you will find is "out of this world". God wants you to enjoy His Kingdom and all the wonderful things that He has made. He just wants you to love Him and appreciate what He has done for you. And once you reach that decision, in living for Him you will find that your life has changed for the better more than you can even imagine. And while still on earth you will have to deal with the temptations and limitations of mortal man, you can be sure that by standing by Him your future will be indescribably wonderful.
Make the decision and commitment today, won't you? You'll be glad forever that you did.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow, praise Him all creatures here below, praise Him above ye Heavenly Hosts, praise God, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.
