Seeds From The Sower

There is a church in South America that is built on a plateau 10,000 feet above sea level. It is called The Church of the Penitents. From its perch above the city it can be seen for miles. One of the most interesting facts about the church is how it came to be built.

For years, each member of the church would carry two bricks to the church site for each sin they committed during the day. It continued until they had enough bricks to build the church.

One day a visitor, fascinated with the story, decided to count every brick. When he was through, he shouted, "A church of sins!"

Is that not one of the reasons for the church? A place where individuals can bring their sins and ask God for forgiveness? The church exists to evangelize sinners not entertain saints. It is to gather for prayer not meet for parties.

Jesus said, "I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."

If you have never responded to His call, won't you do so today?
