Church Vs. God

 Ezra 3:1-6

 

     Israel was in the process of rebuilding their city. If you notice in these verses they built the altar first and started making offerings on it according to the Law of Moses, before they built the actual building. They started worshipping God before they even built a place to worship Him in. Clearly worship of God was important to them. They placed a priority on it.

     Im afraid that today we do the opposite. Some place a greater importance on Church than God Himself. We can get so caught up in "doing" church that we forget God. We can get so ingrossed in programs, activities, and meetings that we forget the God we are supposed to be worshipping. I dont think this is done on purpose. I think we get so caught up in the needs, demands and responsibilities of the church that God slowly slips out of the picture.

     Thats not to say that e should neglect our churches, we shouldnt at all. We serve Jesus through our local churches. But we are wise to keep things in the right order. Its God first. Not a program or committee. If we are not carefull we can get out of balance. If the church becomes a greater focus than God to us it will become a burdon. But when we put God first and make our service a result of worshipping Him we will be energised for work in the church.
