Pastor Rush’s Message: ‘Pick Up Your Game’

(Thanks to Carol for the video tip)

Pastor Rickie G. Rush has become famous for his jump-rope display, teaching that “Your timing is off” when you want to serve God: you’ve got to get your timing in tune with God’s.

When the girl who is trying to “get in” asks if he could slow the rope a little, the pastor says “Oh, no, we can’t slow down! You got to pick up your game–the world is catching up to us!” (And then he shows her how it’s done.)

His advice is good for all of us. Look at that mess out there. You bet the Church has got to pick up its game! How in the world did we ever allow our culture to be dragged down to these depths? You’d better believe we’ve got to pick up our game.
