Monday Is Still Coming

Why is there a breakdown from Sunday to Monday? People in the church get excited about the spirited, well written and perfectly executed sermons on Sunday and some how on Monday they’ve totally forgotten what they’ve heard! They’ve become defeated, depressed and despondent. Life has thrown them lemons, and they just don’t feel like making lemonade on Monday! Where is the disconnect? Do believers, somehow drop the sermon at the front door before heating up their Sunday dinner? Or is something missing?

I heard Bishop Vashti McKenzie say recently on the Word Network, “people are being churched and not changed”. I totally agree!  When you’re churched, you hear a message and say, “that was powerful”, or “the pastor preached today”!… and then Monday comes. Bills are due, collection agencies begin calling at 8:00 am, your children are having a rough time in school, or maybe your spouse has been argumentative. What happened? Monday came.

There must be some application to what is heard on Sunday and what our response to “life”  is on Monday. We all have or will experience suffering ,disappointment or just life’s stuff. We can’t always control what happens to us, but we can control our response to what happens to us. If you’re “the head and not the tail” ( re:Deuteronomy 28:13)  then walk in it! If He is your Shepherd and you have everything you need ( re: Psalm 23) then so be it!

It is my intention that this blog will provide scriptural resources for new responses to life’s circumstances. No matter where your house of worship may be and what day of the week you worship … just know, Monday is still coming. #beprepared

  1. Reminds me of the parable of the sower. How we can hear a message and receive it with joy for a little while, but the second our problems become too great, we quickly forget it.
