Y’all know we take every member a missionary real serious like, so we’re bout give a Sistas in Zion sermon. The other day in church, y’all know what church is right? The house of the Lord, where we praise God and learn about JESUS. Ok so at church we heard this girl telling her friend about her weekend then she said,”YOLO!”
Now it’s not like we’ve never heard YOLO before. Anybody with a Facebook has probably seen pictures of friends doing stupid things and then their status says stuff like, “Gotz ma new 4head tat…YOLO! lolololol.” Ever since rapper Drake said “You Only Live Once” in his song “The Motto” people have been ridin’ YOLO til’ the wheels fall off.
What is a shock is to hear people saying YOLO at Christian churches. Y’all remember that guy, wait for it, it will come to you, oh yeah, JESUS! Lets see if we can explain this:
There was a woman named Mary who had a baby in a manger. That baby’s name was JESUS.
JESUS was crucified and died for your sins, our sins, yo mama’s sins, everybody’s sins.
Three days after he died Jesus rose again, he was resurrected, he LIVED again. They went to the tomb and it was empty! He was walking around, he said hi to his friends, he showed people the nail prints in hands. They wrote a song about it called He Is Risen! and that song came out waaaaayyy before Drake’s.
So the moral of this sermon is:
Don’t do stupid stuff and then say, “Oh wellz u only live 1nce, YOLO!…lololol…ROTFL.” Live life with eternal perspective.
PS: Drake we ain’t mad atcha, you could still invite us to the Grammys!
Let the church say Amen,
