Choosing

Sunday morning. I’m so sleepy. My bed is warm and cozy. I’m alone, Mary is already up getting ready for church, I check the clock, 6:30. It is still darkish outside. I hear the wind and the rain. I don’t check the weather app but if had I would’ve seen very near freezing temperatures. Did I mention my cozy warm bed? I doze a little longer then force myself up and out.

Colossians 3 is the spot to read today. I stumble through it, not really gathering anything useful. Then I hit gold. Maybe not gold but confirmation that getting out of a warm bed on the coldest morning of fall, so far is the right thing to do.

“Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.”

Colossians 3:16 – NLT

So now I am up and dressed and in my right mind, sitting on a chair at church waiting for the other worship members to arrive.

God is always worthy of praising and sacrifice so that is what I will do. Will you join me? No matter where we worship we will be worshipping the same God. Jesus is worthy of praise because of what he has done, giving up his life for our sins.

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
