Popular Religion: If it’s religion it ain’t popular. If it’s popular it ain’t religion

   The day Jesus was born, Herod the Great enjoyed a much greater following.

   Jesus lived about thirty-three years.

   The day Jesus died, Barabbas had a bigger following.

   Baptisms, preacher, or conversions? You can report baptisms. It’s harder to measure conversions because you have to get to the end and look back through the middle to the start.

"God, you see the end, don’t You?

Do we win?

Do I make it?

Is it worth the effort?"

    It has never been a question if we win or not. The truth is He wins, as best as I can tell David always got into trouble for counting God’s people. Now as then we are to be faithful followers even when we don’t know where we are going. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” These great words were penned before q-beams, flashlights or electricity. Their light was a torch lighting their feet and if lucky the next step since that was enough for the psalmist why can’t it be enough for us today. Let’s serve the Lord today, tomorrow has enough problems of it’s own. Yesterday has gone let’s be the folks of today. doug
