Week One

I've finished the first week of the John 3:16 study. Unfortunately I have missed attending church the last two Sundays because of illness. Last week I had allergy/sinus congestion and this week I was struck with a stomach bug. Terrible!! But, I was able to listen the the Pastor's message online thanks to technology! Anyway, the one question that struck me most this weeek was on day four. What do you think is the most unlovable thing about this world? Of course immediately the first thing to come to our minds is usually rape, murder, drugs, lying, cheating, ...however as I thought deeper I began to see what I really think is the most unlovable thing about this world is Complacent Christians! Why? Because we know better and like children we continue to live our life as if we don't even know the greatest gift of all. I'm totally pointing my finger at myself here. But, if I know the greatest thing about this life (John 3:16), then why am I not shouting it from the rooftops? What God expects of me is far more than what I obediently do. I must confess that and ask for forgiveness daily. I'm so thankful salvation is based on a foundation of GRACE and not works. Because not one of us would measure up if it was based on our efforts. Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound!
