It’s Easy To Be A Christian On Easter… Let’s Do It Every Sunday

When I was in seminary we had chapel Tuesday-Thursday at 11:00 A.M. every day. Everyone was encouraged to attend chapel but not everyone did. No one was protesting or anything… but there were times when guys had to study or had some project they were working on.
But one year, Dr. Adrian Rogers preached in chapel. Dr. Rogers was a graduate of NOBTS and he was President of the Southern Baptist Convention at that time. Leavell chapel was packed and Dr.Rogers preached a great message.
The next day, a New Testament Professor was scheduled to preach in chapel. I can remember talking with a friend and asking him if he was going to chapel. He told me he was to support the New Testament Professor who was preaching. There would be not nearly as many people to hear the Professor so, my friend wanted to show support.
Yesterday was Easter. Easter Sunday is kind of an easy day to go to church. I mean, going to church is kind of the thing to do on Easter. And churches were packed.
But what about this coming Sunday? What will the crowds be like? I can tell you that in most churches, the attendance will be down. But it shouldn’t be.
Our commitment should lead us to worship whether it’s Easter Sunday or not. .
In Luke 9:62, Jesus said, “Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.” Jesus was talking about commitment. What is your commitment like? Are you constantly looking behind at the things you once did and wishing you could do them again or, have you set the past aside and you are moving on… living for Christ?
I encourage you not to look back. Set your hand to the plow and press on for Christ.
