How often do you go to church? Just on Sunday, the visiting day?
Story : Sunday The Visiting Day
He was looking forward to this moment all day long, after 6 days ofÂ labor and it finally arrived – Visiting Day!
The man with the keys arrived to swing open the large, heavy doors.Â The cold gray hall springs to life in the warm glow of light. He couldÂ hardly control His emotions.
The families began to arrive. He peers from the corner of the roomÂ longing for the 1st glimpse of His loved one. He lives for theÂ weekends. He lives for these visits.
As the cars arrive, He watches intently. Then, finally, they arrive,Â for whom He would do anything. They embrace, eat a light lunch andÂ reminisce how things used to be.
At one point, they break into singing, with interruptions of laughterÂ and applause. But all too soon it is over. A tear comes to His eyes asÂ they depart.
Then the man with the keys closes the heavy doors. He hears the keyÂ turn in the lock marking the end of a special day. There He stands,Â alone again.
He knows that most of His visitors will not contact Him again tillÂ next week. As the last car pulls away from the parking lot, JesusÂ retreats into loneliness as He waits until next Sunday – Visiting Day.
Is the time that we spend with Jesus an everyday thing, or do we justÂ visit Him on Sunday?
