Odds Are…

I’ve been a Christian for about 10 years and I’ve noticed a few things about people and their likelihoods when it comes to spiritual growth.

Odds are your attendance of the worship services is going to look as bad or worse this year as it was last year.

Odds are you’re going to participate in the actual work of the church as much or even less than you did last year.

Odds are your evangelistic zeal will stay the same or decline this year compared to last year.

Odds are you’re going to look for as many excuses this year, if not more than last year, as to why you’re not growing spiritually.

I say defy the odds! Don’t settle for spiritual mediocrity! Start making an effort to walk on the strait and narrow! EA

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14)
