Just Flip the Switch!!

II remember a few years back a church that built a new building and they wanted to solve the problem of people not turning off the lights when they leave a room.  They had hired a janitor to become a “light turner offer” to fix it, but soon realized the lack of genius in that decision when they had to pay him.  So in the new building they put in light switches that turn on when you go in the room and turn off when you leave.  In reality they had become so lazy, they wouldn’t even take the initiative to turn off a light switch. C’mon!  The argument was, “we want to be good stewards of the Lord’s money, so we don’t want to waste electricity.”  In reality they just wanted to make it easier for people to keep a distance in the area of investing in their church by not being responsible and turning off the lights.  How hard can that be?  Can you give me a remote for that?  Just Flip the Switch!!!  Oh no, that is so below me and my talents….(sarcasm)  Like the man with great possessions we must approach this salvation thing with the realization that Jesus compels us to roll up our sleeves and serve.  By which some may answer, “Can you text me those instructions, so I don’t forget?”  Keep serving in the front of your mind and be a life poured out to continue what Christ has started in our lives.  Jesus said in Matthew 5:13  “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again?  It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.”  I don’t think there is an app for that, so don’t try searching.  The only app here is “apply God’s Word to your life.”  Now  you have heard the truth.  Just flip the switch and see what is waiting for you when you have a willing  heart.

Just flip the switch!!

The Pilgrimage continues….
