What does today’s sermon have to do with the Hokey Pokey?
Some of us have fallen into a hokey pokey faith where we put part of ourselves in, practice our faith in Jesus enough to convince ourselves that we are fully devoted but in our desires and behaviors and influences from others overall indicate that we’re pretty much a mixed bag.
The Lord can deal with a mixed bag – that is why even a small amount of faith is at least a beginning and is to be nurtured rather than snuffed out. Our expectation, however, is that over time and under the influence of the Holy Spirit, we put our whole self in. As we experience that decluttering in our soul, we have the joy of relationship with the Lord, we have the assurance of our eternity in heaven with him, and we have an impact on those around us.
