Yesterday morning we visited with friends at a church in Luther, which is about an hour drive from our house. I resisted at first because of the time and cost, but suddenly realized I was being selfish. I don't know if it was a "revelation from God" but it came out of nowhere with an exclamation point on the end.
I'm complaining about a one hour DRIVE in a heated truck when people used to WALK miles to get to church, and in some countries still do. We drove an hour to see our horses when we lived in the city and now I drive forty minutes every day to get to work. How can I refuse to take a long drive to hear the word of God and fellowship with good people?
This may or may not become our home church but however often we end up going it is a small sacrifice compared to what others are willing to do.
