Stage 1–The Empty Pew
Sleeping late
Weekend visits
No resolve
Deepening neglect

Stage 2–An Empty Heart
No time for God
No time for prayer
Not interested in the Bible
Spiritual cobwebs
More excuses

Stage 3–An Empty life
Influence for God–nil
Influence for church–nil
Example to children on selecting the best–nil
Influence on neighbors–nil
Materialism growing

Stage 4–An Empty future
No “well done, good and faithful servant”
No “thou has been faithful over a few things….”
No crown of life
No “enter thou into the joy of the Lord”
