Talk about going to church for the wrong reason! When I was moving from NY to Cali, just before I left my mom had me make her a promise. It was that I would keep going to church and you know you never break a promise to your mom. So there I was sitting in church JUST waiting for it to get over. I use to pick up the collection just so I could check out the girls on the other side of the church. This went on for quite sometime then one Saturday night I was sitting there looking up at Jesus hanging there on His cross, looking like He was having a bad day. I found myself saying “I’m a hypocrite, God if there is more to you than this, then reveal it to me”
Please don’t misunderstand me; this is what caused me to be there for all the wrong reasons. You see man I grew up in church, I was baptized, confirmed went to parochial school (until they kick me out) confession on Fir the whole bit. For me after all that, I was only God conscience (meaning I knew there was a God) but I didn’t know God. On the outside with my family’s involvement in church I looked very religious just on the out side, but on the inside was spiritually dead. I didn’t have a clue who God was. I’m not putting down any denominations by any means I guess it was my fault
That prayer, when I asked if there was “more to you then this” that prayer started me on the right road. That simple little prayer opened the door for God to show me who He really is. That prayer changed me from being God conscience to really knowing God, it brought me out of be religious to having a Father son relationship. I became born again a short time later, which blew my moms mind,,, anyways.
Again this was my story, sure I was in church for the wrong reason, but God used that wrong reason to do a great work with in my life. I just want to encourage you since tomorrow is Easter, how’s about blowing your wife’s mind by saying “Hey lets find a church to go to tomorrow” I know God has some great things in store just waiting for you. Later Bro 870 God bless
