I recently had a friend of mine share her concerns with me about her “church”. Specifically, the membership is losing focus during the week only to show up on Sunday to be “healed from their sicknesses”. Of course, these “sicknesses” were sins – specifically, alcoholism and drug addiction. In her words, the “fire for the Lord” was there on Sunday and maybe Monday or Tuesday. But come mid-week, the people were struggling. I fear this is a common theme among many today.
