Do you attend church? Do you have a church you attend regularly? Are you a member of a church?
Sounds like a pretty easy question right? But you be surprised at how many people don’t attend church nor do they have a church they attend regularly or that they are a member of.
Why aren’t people attending church? Do you or they think that they don’t need it in order to have a relationship with Jesus? What ever a persons reasons for not attending church I have to tell you that what you are doing is not scriptural. God the Father says we are to be with the body.
This is what Jesus says about Church Attendance:
Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near…Hebrews 10:25
And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers…Act 2:42
This is what Jesus says about Church Fellowship:
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God….Colossians 3:16
As believers of Jesus Christ we must be aware that there are many people who claim to be Christians and yet they don’t do what the word says. Luke 6:46 says
“and why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
I do pray that you are seeking a home church that you can be apart of, because you do need it rather you think of believe that you don’t. Last year I happened to of meet a wonderful young woman who follows me on one of my social media sites, and I posted a message about church and I have known this woman for several years and it wasn’t until I posted in my status about church that I found out that she does not attend church. What a shocker for me because I assumed that she did, for she always posted bible verses she did all kinds of things that was good but she didn’t believe she needed to go to church.
From that experience I never assume anymore if people attend church what I do is I ask do they have a home church and if they don’t I will invite them to come with me until they find a church that they feel is for them.
Lord, you know who is not attending church, Lord I ask you to help those who are seeking to find a church and I ask to you to touch the hearts of those who think that they don’t need a church. Lord it’s not the building that makes the church the church are those who are born again believers the building is just a place we all come together on one accord just like they did in the book of Acts. I ask of this in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. AMEN
