It’s Important You Attend Church Service.
Of course there are days you’re just really stretched and you need to take some time off or time out to refresh and reenter with greater focus and renewed strength.
A personal retreat is not out of place.
However, when you find yourself staying away from gathering with other believers, that’s something to investigate and challenge. Don’t just say “it’s just one of those things” or “I’ve outgrown Church”
To outgrow the body of Christ is to outgrow Christ. Is that even practical?
You may have been hurt, broken, disappointed, used or ignored, but remember that GOD USES IMPERFECT (WO)MEN TO PERFECT (WO)MEN.
If someone has a car accident, have you noticed he will still be conveyed to the hospital by another car?
That tells you that the car is NOT the problem, the DRIVING OR ROAD was.
CHURCH is not the problem, the IMPERFECTIONS of the people who administers it’s affairs may be the problem but even GOD uses such to mature us.
What makes me sure it’s the devil who gives you ideas to stay away from church?
Because GOD says we should NOT stay away and GOD will not contradict His WRITTEN WORD by His SPOKEN WORD.
“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:24-25 NKJV
However, the devil will because He is SATAN- the OPPOSER.
Break the pattern today.
Break the cycle today.
Time to come out of that “3-week break from Church” that has lasted several months.
Step out of the comfort of “ONLINE attendance” and take on the inconvenience of a long ride OFFLINE as part of your sacrificial worship to God.
God has AWESOME things prepared for you.
KINDLY SHARE AND LET’S GET MORE PEOPLE RECONNECTED
