Don’t take the church for granted

I read a story recently about a circuit riding preacher during the frontier days of our land. He was a humdinger of a preacher named Jesse Lee. He once preached a sermon on Acts 17:6 that reads like this in the New King James version: “These that turned the world upside down have come here also.”The thrust of his sermon was that sin has turned the world upside down, and the design of the gospel and the business of the ministry are to set the world right side up again....
