Moment Messages


September 2007

Someone shared the following football moves that many Christians in our churches use today. Check this list to see if you are participating in "Christian Football":

 Quarterback Sneak - Church members quietly leaving during the invitation.

 Draw Play - What many children do with the bulletin during worship.

 Half-time - The period between Sunday School and worship when many choose to leave.

 Benchwarmer - Those who do not sing, pray, work, or apparently do anything but sit.

 Backfield-in-Motion - Making a trip to the back (restroom or water fountain) during the service.

 Staying in the Pocket - What happens to a lot of money that should be given to the Lord's work.

 Two-minute Warning - The point at which you realize the sermon is almost over and begin to gather up your children and belongings.

 Instant Replay - The preacher loses his notes and falls back on last week's illustrations.

 Sudden Death- What happens to the attention span of the congregation if the preacher goes "overtime."

 Trap - You're called on to pray and are asleep.

 End Run - Getting out of church quick, without speaking to any guest or fellow member.

 Flex Defense - The ability to allow absolutely nothing said during the sermon to affect your life.

 Halfback Option - The decision of 50 of the congregation not to return for the evening service.

Blitz - The rush for the restaurants following the closing prayer.

May we all commit our ways unto HIM.

In Christ,

Bro. Donny
