A Dead Church ~ Anchored In Him

Please download Java(tm).

A new Pastor in a small Oklahoma town spent the first four days making 
personal visits to each of the members, inviting them to come to his first 

The following Sunday the church was all but empty. Accordingly, the Pastor 
placed a notice in the local newspapers, stating that, because the church 
was dead, it was everyone's duty to give it a decent Christian burial. The 
funeral would be held the following Sunday afternoon, the notice said.

Morbidly curious, a large crowd turned out for the "funeral." In front of 
the pulpit, they saw a closed coffin, smothered in flowers. After the 
Pastor delivered the eulogy, he opened the coffin and invited his 
congregation to come forward and pay their final respects to their dead 

Filled with curiosity as to what would represent the corpse of a "dead 
church," all the people eagerly lined up to look in the coffin. Each 
mourner" peeped into the coffin then quickly turned away with a guilty, 
sheepish look.

In the coffin, tilted at the correct angle, was a large mirror.

The question my friend is simple, what will your
excuse be to God? We all will stand judgment . . .

If you believe on Jesus' name, then of His church you are a part . . .
