1 Kings 10:4 When the queen of Sheba saw all the wisdom of Solomon, and the house that he had built, 5 and the food of his table, the seating of his servants, the service of his waiters and their attire, his cupbearers, and his burnt offerings which he offered at the house of the Lord, she was breathless. 6 Then she said to the king, “It was a true story that I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom. 7 But I did not believe the stories until I came and my own eyes saw it all. And behold, the half of it was not reported to me. You have exceeded in wisdom and prosperity the report which I heard.
In many not so private conversations, I have often spoken with other leaders about things like conversion rates, and the problem of what we have called “C and E Christians”. By that is meant those folks who show up at Christmas and Easter but are not heard of at any other time. If you show up for Christmas services or Easter and nothing in between or after it is tantamount to leaving the theater after the first act or showing up for the final moments. You will have no sense of the drama of Christ and God’s love for you, you will never understand fully the desperate need you have for His forgiveness, and you will never receive the blessing of His Holy Spirit.
This year, why not resolve to read the libretto (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), stay for the whole “play” and let the story speak to your heart. If you do, you will be changed.
