We Get To!

I'm presently reading a book by Mark Cahill. It's called 'One Thing You Can't do in Heaven'. And as I came across this part in his book! I thought to myself! How true and amazing we forget these privileges and promises of God, which are found in His written Word for the Christian life......So I thought I would share a little portion of his wonderful book with you......Mark calls this chapter the "GET TO!"
  • It's not that we have "got" to go to church, but that we "GET" to go to church!
  • It's not that we have "got" to pray, but we "GET" to pray to the Almighty God of this universe!
  • It's not that we have "got" to read the bible, but we "GET" to read the holy Word of God!
  • It's not that we have "got" to worship God, but we "GET" to worship the King of kings with our entire being!
  • It's not that we have "got" to go to Heaven, but we "GET" to go to Heaven!
  • It's not that we have "got" to share our faith, but we "GET" to share our faith with all the lost people you can find until you get to Heaven! (pg 22-30)
We serve an amazing God who allows us the privilege and honor to share the Gospel that saves with this present, fallen and lost world.........If I could add to Mark's book, which I don't need to by the way!........I would ADD THIS! "It's not that I have "got" the right to breath, but  I "GET" the privilege to breathe! By a holy and mericiful God."
A God who said "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (you, me)" Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him." Rom 5:8-9 Praise His holy name today and forever and share your faith with those around you. Why? because we have a living hope and His name is Jesus Christ!

To God be the glory who saves to the uttermost.

You are right! Great post! I have been saying those things for years. I wish we could get the "I am going to church out of our vocabulary." We can't go where there is nothing until we get there.

In other words, the scattered body chooses to gather together with grateful hearts for edification and exaltation of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen to that brother! I pray people would stop treating the church and the Christian life as some kind of accessory! It's a privilege to be called by God, set apart by God, to live for God! Because He is extremely valuable and precious as that "pearl of great price".....

Thank you so much for those words of wisdom. We don't "got" to do anything, it is our privilege to "get" to do what God wants us to do. God bless, Lloyd
