Now, not all our attenders are members, and not all our members are attenders, but if all our attenders were members, and all our members were attenders…
THEN…we’d have more trouble menders, more gospel defenders and more true soul winners!
BUT…we’d have fewer people offenders, fewer spiritual hinderers and fewer religious pretenders!
SO…let us all render a more tender surrender to the Commender of a love full of splendor! As we meander on this earth full of sinners, let us engender a life with the Lord at the center.
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us. and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us” (Hebrews 12:1).
