Day 310

Today’s Reading – Mark 13

As Jesus left the temple,
one of his disciples said to him,
“Teacher, look! What awesome stones and buildings!” 
Mark 13:1 CEB

I think this little tidbit from a moment in Christ’s life reveals much about our own lives and how we live our faith.

We miss it. We miss everything.

We are walking with the Savior and looking at the scenery!

We go to worship and come out talking about all that we likes and didn’t like.

We focus on everything but the reason we came – to worship Christ!

Don’t miss the Savior for the building.

I apologize for ‘us’ (the church) when we fail to point people to Christ and instead we point you towards our programs, our buildings, our activities.

Forgive ‘us’ – we are still learning as well.

Come for the scenery, but stay for the relationship with the Savior!


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
