For most people, their church is an extension of their home.  People often feel tied to a church.  Maybe you grew up in it.  Perhaps you searched it out and found what you were looking for.  Maybe you married into it.  Whatever the reason was that you started going...is the feeling still the same or are you staying out of obligation?  

It could be you...you're not taking your religion as seriously as you used to.  You might feel that you've tried to get your church to shift direction or try something different and they were unwilling, unable, unaccepting or unyielding. 

It could be them...appointing people to positions - people who are not doing things in and for the church, people who have no knowledge of what the position entails, or people, who once they get there, just sit and wait for their time to be done.  Maybe there are too many ministries and no ministering.  Or perhaps they are too rigid in the ways of the old and not adapting to changing times or generations.

So here is some literal food for thought.

If you went to a restaurant and the service was bad and the food was terrible, and you went back a couple times more hoping for change - but there was none, would you continue to go back?

Well, sometimes that's how you need to treat your church.  Loyalty has no place in your spirituality.  Your spirit needs to be fed continuously, it needs nurturing, and love and room to expand.  If you are going to church week after week and being starved, stifled or stunted then it's time to decide if this is the table you need to sit at.  Is your faithfulness to the church or to the Lord?

What is it that you need to be spiritual nourished?  Happiness?  Support?  Meditation?  Knowlege?  Love?

What ever it is...it needs to be prepared and presented correctly.  It needs to be cleansed, seasoned, and organized.  Then it needs to be laid out in an appealing and appeasing manner.  It needs to look good on the plate and on the table.  It needs to be easy to swallow and go down smoothly.  It needs to tantalize, vitalize and utilize your senses, your motives and your spirit.  

And those who are preparing it need to have knowledge, know how and knifing skills - so they can cut out and cut around the unesscessary and serve only the finest cuts.

And those who are serving it, need to be ushering, attending, welcoming and acknowledging.  They need to know how to portion, pour and plate.  They need to know when to fill, when you are full and when to overflow.

Nobody eats at a poorly rated restaurant, and the house your attend, or the table you sit at for you spirituality should be the same.

What's Being Served at Your Table?

Living Blessed!

Acts 5:12-16  (NKJV)

Continuing Power in the Church

12 And through the hands of the apostles
many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch.
13 Yet none of the rest dared join them, 
but the people esteemed them highly.
14 And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women,  15 so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow
of Peter passing by might fall on some of them.  16 Also a multitude gathered from
the surrounding cities o Jerusalem,
bringing sick people and those who were
tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.
