Back when my granddaughter, Loralei, was 19 months old,
she was sitting on her Grandmother’s lap, on the front porch.
I remember coming home from work, and she saw my car.
She got so excited and a big smile came over her face.
When I got out of the car, she began to wave and say
“Pappaw Pappaw”. “Others should see that God is not dead
by the relationship you have with Him.”
I like to call them CEOs (Christmas, Easter and Occasions). They
will come to church out of obligation during religious holidays, for a
wedding, baptism or a funeral, but other than that no way. If today’s
churches would spend as much focus on developing dedicated
believers and worshipers as they do on twice a year performances,
their buildings would be overflowing and this county would have a
real revival. “Are you a Christian because of cultural,
convenience, commitment or conversion?”
He said: “Dad, your car would no longer go
backwards.” I thought he was joking so I tried to put
it in reverse. Well he was right, the transmission
broke and it would only go forward. As Christians,
we are to be moving and looking only forward. “We
need to keep moving only forward following our
GPS (God’s Personal Savior).”
