He Won’t Be Present

I have a sad announcement regarding this weekend. Because of just pushing too hard for way too long, Jesus won’t be present this coming Sunday at some of your churches.

Now, I don’t believe that for one minute, do you? But maybe by catching your attention, I can underscore the marvelous privilege that’s ours of knowing our Lord’s presence time and again. But, we also shouldn’t take it for granted.

Let me just remind you, as you start to prepare for the weekend, that the Lord of the church, Jesus, the very Son of God, plans through His Spirit to grace the very church where you will go to worship.

If He were there bodily, you wouldn’t miss it for anything. So by faith, go with that same attitude of expectancy and delight and worship.


I am grateful that I continue to hear how positively readers are responding to my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at Amazon.com by clicking here.

In this book, I offer some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what their pastor has said from the pulpit.

You will find a variety of other helpful resources for pastors and congregations at the Mainstay Ministries website. Please click here.
