A Dog With A Sock, and Sunday Church

Although these pictures have the same subject, they are not quite the same. One picture is blurry. The other is clear. The blurry picture could be likened to a church service. At church, we get a blurry picture of Heaven. We sing praises to God, just like we will in Heaven, we talk to God, we enjoy sweet fellowship with other believers, but we also come tired and grumpy, we may gossip about others, we eat too many donuts . . . it's not the perfect and sinless paradise that is Heaven. It is what it is, and it's as close to Heaven as we can get on earth. So, while the blurry picture is far from perfect, it's the best we got. May your church attendance be blessed this weekend, basking in the goodness of our great God and looking forward to the day when we will see Him clearly, with no sin to pollute our relationship. While yet on earth, we see God only with a veiled face, a blurry vision of His glory; but when we see Him face to face, we will see His glory clearly and perfectly. 2 Cor. 3:18.
