The Lost Art of Reading

- Sermons - New Years

Preached at the Sunday Morning service on December 29, 2013 by Pastor Ray Bertolet.
Part of the New Years series.

In today’s world everything has become short and quick. We have gone from writing letters, to emails to short notes and now even tweets. Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables users to send and read "tweets", which are text messages limited to 140 characters. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with 500 million registered users in 2012, who posted 340 million tweets per day. Sadly, I think that beyond losing our desire to write long notes we are also losing our desire to sit and read for any length of time. If we can’t find a video or song to entertain us we have lose interest and because we see so many short notes that do not apply to us we have developed a skill to ignore what is being said. However, ignoring messages is nothing new, the people of Israel have been doing this through history in the Old Testament. So how can we learn to read and listen to what we read?

    Pastor Ray – Harry and I just listened to your message. Again, very soul searching and thought provoking. I think of the Scripture passage that says “Examine yourself and see if your in the faith”. This is a daily walk – keep on being filled with the Spirit – confessing sin and renewing right fellowship with the Lord. Good exhortation! Blessings, H&S

    God wants us to Himself, with no idols before Him. This message helps us to realize how easy it is to become distracted from the things of the Lord in our daily lives.
