If you're spiritually alive, you're going to love this! If you're spiritually dead, you won't want to read it. If you're spiritually curious, there is still hope!
A church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and
complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday... "I've
gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have
heard something like 203,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can't
remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my
time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all."
This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column,
much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until
someone wrote this clincher:
"I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has
cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot
recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know
this.. They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my
work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically
dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I
would be spiritually dead today!"
When you are DOWN to nothing... God is UP to something! Faith
sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the
impossible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual
