Coffee.. The Eye Opener

Sometimes its hard to wake up in the Mornings. We Yawn, Stretch, and hit the snooze and go right back to sleep. So are we with the View of Church. We don't want to Jump right in to it.
We don't want to Exert the Energy to push on.
So lets' take a look as some Writers and what they have to say about Getting the Picture.

Trip Lee
" Say what? The King was slain as the lamb When He came to the land that He made with His hands .. Say what? Just try to make your brain understand, He's so big, man's like a grain in the sand, That picture's too big for a frame, but my plan is to grow I pray my picture of the King will expand.. I could study forever and read all day But still wouldn't understand the King all the way .. I got a long way to go, but I'm pleased to say I get to live my whole life just to seek His face"

Paul said " Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind"
Phil 3:13-15

Why do we need to continue to grow in Christ? Why do we need to press on? Why can't we just go to Church on Sunday Mornings and Be Done? Ever hear anyone say stuff like this or thought it yourself?
Ever wonder why we have several services through out the week? Because our Picture of God is to Weak. We can't Grasp what He is, What he has done, and what he is doing.. The only way to catch a glimps is to spend time with him. First on a Personal Level, then in a Group Setting, and then following it up with Corporate Worship. We need the one on one time because God is Personal. We need the Small Group time because Jesus chose 12 to impart His Life to. Then we need the Full Church Setting because Jesus Ministered and Did Miracles with the Feeding of the 5 thousand.
No one person has the Answers. At Best we are one Begger showing the other beggers where we got our Bread. Paul the Apostle said "I haven't grasped it yet, but I press on." We in our society can't continue on. We like quick results, and instant coffee. Not the Slow Roasted that takes time to Steep.


  1. That's really awesome I agree with it people jut want to go one day and be done because it takes to much time or they have better things to do they don't want to do the work and they think that they are perfect with not going that much and that they are doing good. They just want to go in and out and be done with it. I think people need to focus on their relationship with God because in the end that's what really matters.

  2. A baby doesn't become an adult over night. It's a process. There are stages. And even doctors say babies that skip stages usually don't develop on all levels correctly, so we not growing into maturity trying to skip stages develop incorrectly and usually not at all

  3. and once again, we dont need to be those squrels that got baptised and only came on Easter and Christmas, Jesus isnt a name that you should be able to throw around like its nothin, his name shoold be something special that brings a smile just to think about.... not-"oh, Jesus?.... yea, I talk to him every december 25th, and the third sunday of april.....

  4. I agree Justin people don't take Jesus serious, they think it's just another subject. People normally get mad when you mention his name or try yor talk to him. People should be more serious about it like just said it's not something you your throw around. And I agree about the skipping stages Michael it's not how it should be you can't just say your an amazing christian so you don't have to read anything because you know it all.. Because the fact of the matter is no one knows near as much as they need to know. There is always something you can know more about your relationship needs to stay strong and continue to grow.

  5. The name of the Trip Lee Song is Inexhaustable, and That is what our God is. He has no beginning and no End, He is and was, so how can we who have a beginning and an end know the Depths and knowledge of Him who Dwells in Eternity..
    Job 38 says "4 "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth ? Tell Me, if you have understanding, 5 Who set its measurements ? Since you know. Or who stretched the line on it? 6 "On what were its bases sunk ? Or who laid its cornerstone , 7 When the morning stars sang together And all the sons of God shouted for joy ? 8 "Or who enclosed the sea with doors When, bursting forth, it went out from the womb"
