Today, the drive-thru has become a modern cultural phenomenon used by banks, restaurants, coffee shops, convenient stores, car washes, and even zoos. We’re able to get what we want, when we want it without taking much time or having a real interaction with real people. Even in Christianity, there are many teachings that treat God as if He was a drive-thru, a machine that exists to serve you. Just say the right words or formula and you’ll get what you ask for. This is not the way to approach God, trying to get what you want from Him instead of having a relationship with Him. It’s about seeing His face. Have you gotten more into your desires, requests, and petitions to God, then God Himself; coming to Him more to get your order filled than to relate to Him, driving past his presence instead of coming in? It’s time to get out of your spiritual car, forget your demands and come into His presence. Because the Lord is a lot more than a burger and your relationship with Him is not a drive-thru.
Today’s Mission – Today, don’t seek God for what He can do for you – but seek God for God, seek His face.
