Julie Reid, fresh from a college football game, notes the similarities…or, perhaps, lack of similarities…between the worship observed at a football game and the worship observed at church on Sundays. Which are we more passionate, prepared, and excited about?
Here is something truly amazing……every seat was filled in the stadium a full 16 minutes before the game! What if that was church and we were ready before the service instead of coming in late? I am going to give it a try this week. I am going to dress up for church like I did this week for the Griz game, I am going to prepare myself for worship like we prepared for college football, learn the prayers on the calendar of our church that week, and the songs, and come ready…ready to worship.
