Everyone knows that Agony, Pain and Tribulation are the Characteristics of a Christian. It causes a "somber face" with "concern lines" in the forehead. NOW THAT'S A DEDICATED CHRISTIAN! REALLY? The only time we have Pain and Agony with "long faces", is when OUR WILL DOES NOT AGREE WITH GOD'S WILL. But we are suppose to agonize in inexpressible shame and degradation for our sins. If that's the case, we must have a VERY UNFORGIVING GOD. Revelation 2:99, "...I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews..." When GOD'S WILL is OUR WILL, the same things which once caused Pain and Agony, now are the SOURCES OF EXUBERANT CELEBRATION AND REJOICING! If "Church services seem too long" and we need a "break from" all of this Praising, MAYBE HEAVEN IS NOT FOR US.
