I have heard similar stories a hundred or more times, probably more.
‘Yeah, life has been hard, so I just don’t have time for Church’
‘My life is falling a part and I blame God’
‘Church just doesn’t fit with my crazy life right now’
‘I’m upset at a decision the Pastor made and so I’m going to find another church’
‘People look at me with judgmental eyes at Church’
Totally get this from folks who are far from Jesus.
Totally would expect it.
But, I’m just shocked at the amount of people who say they follow Jesus and they fall into one of these categories.
Now, before you think I’m going all Judgmental. I’ve been there! I was once SUPER CRAZY STUPID burned out on Church. I was. I said some of those reasons. So, I get this all too well!
But, by the grace of God, I woke up and jumped back in.
I don’t know what’s happening in your life right now. I don’t know how hard it is. I don’t know if you’re ticked off at your Pastor. I don’t know if somebody in your church has excluded you. I don’t know if you lost your job and you blame God.
Whatever the reason. Don’t give up. That’s the easy thing to do.
Jump back in to your relationship with God. He’s ready and waiting! He can’t wait to immerse you in His love.
Jump back in to Christ’s bride. The Church is waiting for you and needs you.
