To love, starts from now

No one is perfect, at least that is the truth that is hitting in my soul daily. Why am I then looking for the perfect church to go to, or looking for the best Christian community to hang out with; I realized these are the wrong questions to ask. It is not what the Church can do for me, it is what I can do for the church.

One of the key messages over the weekend was the story Pastor Isaiah preached on Sunday, about this award ceremony or a fund raising party where throngs of people were in the hall and people reading out Psalms 23, there came this man who narrated Psalms 23 flawlessly and everyone was making a din, until the last speaker, an old preacher of 70? came up on the stage and stammering out Psalms 23, but instead of hearing the jeers and noise, everyone was quiet and a cloud of awe and wonder descended on the place. The host has to hastily close the ceremony because of the awkward silence. At the door, when asked why there is a difference between the two speakers on the Psalms 23, the man who narrated beautifully said. While everyone can narrate Psalms 23, this old preacher LIVED it.

That statement resounded in my spirit and soul from then on, because it is something I have failed, while i studied the scriptures, or read the Word, and widely read on all Christian literatures, but i have not lived it. From now onwards i will seek to live Psalms 23, or Psalms 1, or the scriptures i have read so i will not be found being a hypocrite.
