When will we move beyond what we're wanting from our worship services to begin focusing on what God might want in our worship?
When will we move beyond, "The music is too loud," "It's not loud enough," to asking, "did my worship please God this morning?"
When will we stop insisting for our preferences and start thinking for once about what kind o spirit and attitude that might actually attract people who don't know Jesus to desire Him more?
The moment the church focuses on pleasing it's members and doesn't give attention to what might actually grow new Christ-followers and more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ is the moment that church begins to die.
We ought to be more concerned about our next 100 members than we are about what pleases us. Because if we only behave in ways that please us, we will find ourselves displeasing God.
What would you be willing to do in order to see your children and grand-children fall in love with Jesus Christ? What would you be willing to give up in order to see your loved ones come to know and love our Savior?
That ought to be the attitude and spirit people see in our church.
