As you go to church, it is important that you do your part. The choir has been practicing, the pastor has been with God this week preparing to speak to you a Word from the Lord, and if you don’t do your part you may just miss what the Spirit has for you.
How awesome would it be if the entire church was at the altar before worship began on their knees in prayer that their hearts would be fertile ground for God to reach them as they gather to worship Him this day? That is not going to happen. But you can go even if nobody else does.
I promise you one thing. If you go to the altar and spend five minutes BEFORE church today, the choir will sound better, the preacher will preach better, and you will hear God better.
