Topic:Going To Church: How Important Is It To You?

 

Text: And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching (Hebrews 10:24-25).

 

Message: Some Christians think they should only go to church when its convenient. They believe God is everywhere, so you dont necessarily have to go to church to serve or worship Him. Its not right. Our opening scripture expresses the importance of going to church. It chides those who dont and admonishes us not to be like them.

There should be a compulsion in your heart to be in church when you should. Cultivate that personal discipline. God says its important so it must be to you too. In the Old Testament, He said to the children of Israel, Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord GOD, the God of Israel. For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders: neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to appear before the LORD thy God thrice in the year (Exodus 34:23-24).

Notice what He told them; He promised them those lands, through their fathers: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But the lands were occupied by enemy nations who were naturally stronger than Israel. However, God was going to cast out the nations from before them, give them their possessions, enlarge their borders and protect them. The blessing of verse twenty-four was fully dependent on their Going To Church: How Important Is It To You? THURSDAY 16 obedience in verse twenty-three; their being in the designated place of worship when they should. Its all about priorities.

This year, as you make it a priority to be present in your church, fellowship and cell-group meetings, Gods mighty hand of protection will rest upon all that you do! His Word thatll come to you will lift you, and keep you perpetually above every evil, destruction, hardship and terror. Youll ride upon the high places of the earth, walking in abundance, and in the wisdom of the Spirit. Hallelujah!

PRAYER: Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the opportunity to be instructed by your Word. Not only do I provoke those in my world to good works, I do not forsake the assembling of the church; the blessings of fellowship with you and with fellow believers is seen and manifested in my life, in Jesus Name. Amen.
