The God Size
"Would you like to Super size that ?" It seems that all of the fast food restaurants are in the business of making us believe that if we "Super size" our meal that we are receiving a better deal, because we are getting more for less. Sometimes that mentality slips into our spiritual thinking and we get the idea of more with less. Less prayer, just more concentrated. Less meditation in Gods word, just more targeted study and investigation. Less attendance at church, just more Christian activity. The reality of this is that just like the illusion of more for less is with the restaurants, the same is true with God. His word is to be a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path, but it will be very dim without the fuel of our time in it. Prayer is to be the avenue of our communication with God, but the less time we spend speaking to Him and listening to His voice the more we don't understand the answers. Attendance in church is for the edification of the Body and the glorification of the one who is to be first in our lives. The one we are to love above all. But the more we are out of attendance the more disconnected we become to the Body and to the Spirit that fills that Body.
Psalm 84:1-2, 11
How lovely is your Tabernacle, O Lord of host! My souls longs, yes even faints for the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
For the Lord God is a sun and a shield: the Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
