Living on the Dregs

It has been so cool here that hot tea has been in order.  Yum! Yum!  Hot strong tea with some sugar and lots of cream.  One of my favorite drinks.  I like my tea strong, no watery beige color for m, but deep and dark.

Dora’s comment on the post Koinonia – Fellowship got me to thinking.

How often do believers try to live life with the dregs of a past fellowship with the Lord?

When was the last time you really desired to study your Bible and pray? Actually before a crisis?

Do you look forward to gathering with fellow church members to study God’s Word?  Or do you dread going to church?

Are you so eager to fellowship with others and the Lord that you are early or just dragging in, bidding your time until you can move on to the next (more important) thing on the agenda?

Are you reusing the tea bag over and over again until you have to convince yourself that it really is tea and not water?

Our Christian lives should be strong and robust, not just a hint of a Christian life.

Are you living on the dregs of a past relationship?

  1. You know, I think with some, it’s not so much living on dregs, it’s just that they don’t get it. They don’t seem to understand that salvation is not a standstill lifestyle, but we are to grow into the image of His Son, Jesus Christ.

    And if you are growing, and they are not, well then, maybe, dregs it is.

    How we need a lot of eye opening to take place.

    Dora,

    I think many have been taught a faulty concept of salvation even from the church. To them Salvation is like a charm on a bracelet or the “been there done that T-shirts”. Just a tick mark on a list of todo’s before moving on to the “important” things of life. 🙁
