How To Get Out of Your ‘Holy Huddle’
March 4, 2015
“Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
as in obeying the voice of the LORD?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
and to listen than the fat of rams.”
1 Samuel 15:22
One of my favorite sports to watch on TV is football. If you ever watch football, you know that the majority of the broadcast isn’t actually about the action of the game. Rather, it consists of the teams huddling together and getting ready for the next play.
I saw recently that some channels are taking the games that have been played, editing out the huddles, and just showing the action. This gives the viewer the chance to just watch the actual plays. You can even watch a whole game in less than an hour!
These programmers know something about the viewing audience of a football game. They want to see the players in action. And the same is true of the watching world when it comes to observing Christians. They don’t care much about what we do on Sunday mornings. They want to see us in action!
For the Christian, church is preparation for service and witness in a broken and hurting world. We can’t just huddle up on Sunday and hope that will get the job done. We must execute the plays throughout the week. Let’s break the huddle and get into the action today!
DON’T JUST STAY IN YOUR ‘CHURCH HUDDLE.’ GET INTO THE ACTION BY MINISTERING AND SERVING IN A HURTING WORLD.
