Is the Church a Hospital for Sinners?

church is for sinners

We say this…

But is it true?

Our Attire: Patients are clothed in the same gown in the hospital. We wear our “Sunday best” to church.

Our Appearance: Patients openly hurt in the hospital and cry out for help. We hide our pain in church, silent as church mice. We’re there so we’ve got to be good, right?

Our Actions: Patients seek medicine and help at the hospital. We seemingly don’t seek or welcome our remedy Jesus in church.

Our Attitude: Patients are glad to lie in a bed in the hospital for healing. We neglect laying our all on the altar in church.

Our Attendance: Do we receive as much healing at church once a week as we do during a hospital stay in one admittance?

Our Atmosphere: There’s a huge difference in a hospital and a church.

Let’s quit thinking this, saying this and do something about this!

Our Allelujah,

Faith and Soap

I love soap! The fresh natural kind with a soft fragrance and rich lather. The abundance of suds make me feel extra clean. I’ve been told I’m all about some feels.

We use soap every day! Bathing. Washing our hands. Doing the dishes. Laundry. Cleaning the house. I use a tea tree bar soap as astringent for my face to prevent breakouts. Spearmint for my body to awaken my senses. Lavender to soothe aches and pains. I can find a natural soap for just about everything that ails me. Sloane gifted me these local soaps from Union Springs Soap for Christmas.
Showering this morning, Jesus began to show me himself in the details of soap. He’s a balm that soothes every need (Jeremiah 46:11). He cleanses us daily if we ask him (1 John 1:9). His fragrance is sweet (2 Corinthians 2:15).
Jesus is the S.O.A.P (Savior Of All People)!
