Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths. Isaiah 2: 3
Just come. Come to church. Come to worship. Come to be with people. Not because a church building is extra special. Not because a certain worship style is the best. Not because people are always good or perfectly right.
Go up to the mountain of the Lord. Sometimes it is an uphill battle to set aside the time, get out of bed and pull the family together. Go to the house of the God of Jacob because our own houses have too many distractions and things to do.
Seems these days many are wondering when, where and how will we ever learn to kind, fair and safe. Just come. Together we will learn God's ways and walk in His paths. --Ruth Gates
