This Week's Word is: MORE!!!

One day as I was visiting my family in my home town I drove past a church that had a sign  and on that sign was one of those "cute" statements meant to catch your attention and to make you think.  I drove by it, slowed down to read it.  Turned around to drive by again and pulled into the parking lot to think about it.  I know that the church, the Pastor and the whoever put up the sign meant well but it was so wrong.  I almost couldn't believe it.  It was only four words long.  But it almost made me cry.  I knew what they were trying to say - but it showed me one of the biggest flaws in the way most church's and perhaps most Christians think.  The phrase?  So simple.  So understandable.  Are you ready?    Here it is in big bold letters:  THE SIN OF MORE!

I am sure that the sermon that week was focusing on the sin of greed.  But the sentence?  Well consider this from John 10:10: "I am come that they might have life, and that might have it MORE abundantly."  Or this one from Romans 8:37: No, in all these things we are MORE than conquerors."  And then there is this one from our scripture for Sunday:  Now to him who is able to do immeasurably MORE than all we ask or IMAGINE"  (Ephesians 3:20)

Now none of these sound like sin do they?  That word more - its been banging around in my head for years now.  We in the church need to be celebrating MORE.  


MORE.... now that's this week's word!
