Cry Freedom

Superbowl XXX is history now. Yes, I am happy that Dallas won; I can’t shake my Texas heritage. On Superbowl Sunday I stood before our Church service with a challenge. I knew that in just a few hours we would all be yelling our heads off for our favorite team. Yet the audience was showing little more enthusiasm to be in an assembly with God and his angels than they would show at a funeral. Christianity is not meant to be passive. Take the Superbowl test. Are you as fired up in your daily Christian walk as the football crowd is at the game? Of course, we can hype ourselves and our assemblies without the energy coming from the heart, but then it is just hype, not the Spirit of God. As we grow in size and age as a movement, let us never become so sophisticated” that we lose our childlike excitement as we see God working.
