Stained Glass Cross

SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK - MARK 8:34-38

There seems to be some confusion in our culture about being a Christian. The confusion stems from worshipping the false god "Entertainment". Many people seem to think that the purpose of worship is to entertain them. Many believe that following Jesus should be fun. There are more than a few congregational leaders willing to give the people what they want in order to draw a crowd.

Christianity that aims to please the spiritual consumer is not Christianity. Jesus came to suffer and die. He calls all who would follow him to bear a cross. He was not in the entertainment business,and he certainly never promised that following him would be fun. Worship is not about us; it is about God.

It is difficult to follow Jesus. We must count the cost and be willing to pay it. We should find our entertainment elsewhere.
