What Do You Want?

I enjoyed a wonderful evening at Tommy Fox’s Pub Friday evening and ate my traditional Chicken Pot Pie. The waitress asks me “what do you want?” every time I’m there but knows that when I am there I eat Chicken Pot Pie. I don’t blame the wait staff for asking me even though the answer is always the same. I go to Tommy Fox when I wish to eat Chicken Pot Pie. I’m never disappointed.

When we go to church, “what do we want?” If we go to see a crowd the size of a Yankee crowd we will be disappointed. If we go to hear music as good as a broad way show we will be disappointed. If we go to see a miracle where a man born blind is instantly healed we will be disappointed. What do we want when we go to church?

If we go to Church to hear from God, we will get what we want. If we go to church to learn how to honor God, we will get what we want. If we go to church to become better Christians, we will get what we want. Is it about us or is it about honoring God and working with God in improving us?

What do we want? To better imitate God in our lives? Then get to church. You will get what you want.
