Fervent love for God

Psalm 84:2”My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.”

Wow, what a scripture, I tell you!  This fervent love for God should rub off on us today!  I would like to share here my experience of meeting an aged mom and her son during a train journey, who were hindu believers and I was literally shaken by their passionate love for their gods. He had the head-phone plugged to his ears and was listening to music, most part of the journey. After a tremendous struggle of silently wrestling in prayer for him, I got to speak to him for some time. He said that he utters praises to his gods more than thousands times during the day. He does not watch movies nor listen to movie songs, he is engaged 24/7 praising his gods. Besides doing this, everyday he sweeps and cleans the temple near his home. He said, ‘serving his god and praising him all the time is the passion in his life.’

While I see complacent Christians all around me, who do not care to spend a minute in prayer or separate time to read His Word, wake up early to pray, such words from a hindu man just blew me up. Since Christians are sleeping and snoring without praising the real God, the devil has stolen the worship. Jesus said in Mathew 15:9”And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. " I used to be invited often to a church, whenever I visited that particular city; I was surprised by the frequent change in their worship timings, each time I visit, it would be different. One day during the service, the Senior Pastor of the church enquired the church if the recent change in timings were convenient to them; half the church came late, though. Wicked people will never change, even if the church makes a thousand changes for their benefit! My heart is gripped with a bit of urgency for today's churches, they are like mushrooms growing rapidly; BUT is God really moving in their midst???? Today the churches pamper people to draw them to church: breakfast is offered, flowers are given to new comers, honey-sweet sermons are carefully preached so that the members are not upset; all that is missing are feeding bottles! What else can you offer to a Christian who refuses to grow?

With churches being closed now, have Christians changed? No…no…they come late to zoom prayer meetings.  Omicron, Covid has not shaken the complacency out of them, as long as they have money in the pocket, nothing matters to them, 

Dear God, Help me to live for you, give me passion to love you more and be a good disciple for you.  Let me be the salt and light of not only my family, friends and children but I should be a vessel of honor for my community. Amen.
