Getting Crowded

It looks as if Thanksgiving is a huge deal this year.
I ventured out to Walmart during lunch yesterday and had to park quite a distance away.
The store was crowded and I checked to see if it was the Friday after Thanksgiving.
Most of the shoppers seemed to be confining themselves in the grocery section, which was good news for me since I was looking for some bathroom accessories.
The crowds will grow and grow as Christmas draws near.
After Christmas the returns will begin and slowly slack off into the first weeks of January.
Shopping will return back to normal until Valentines.
Easter will see an increase of customers and even more for Mother’s Day.
But nothing can beat the crowds for this time of year.
Church is kind of like that.
We can have almost 50 for church one week and 30 the next.
It’s almost as if I’m running some kind of special from week to week.
I look forward to the day the crowd never slacks off, though I don’t think it will be in this life.
After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.” Rev 7:9-12
There are no blue-light specials, no cards to buy, no rushing to beat the crowd to the best deal; it’s just praising and worshipping God the way He meant it to be, all of us together!

One thought on “Getting Crowded

  1. I realize a dissapointment when I look around during a service and see so much emptiness. We have the room for a multiude of people. I know it would delight our Lord to have so many worshiping and seeking Him in agreement. So many wonder why life is as it is for them. They don’t understand that God has all the answers. HE IS THE ANSWER! God is in Walmart, Lows, gas station, the neighbors house. But he is hidden to those looking for a different answer.With God I see so much beauty in this earth. I all so see the horror and bondage of unbelief. It is written that their hearts are vailed. Only Christ can rent that vail, and only by invitation.
