Don’t Wander From Church – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional August 3rd

(The Church Is God’s Security System For You)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Timothy 4:1 TLB
“…The Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some in the church will turn away from Christ and become eager followers of teachers with devil-inspired ideas.”

Have you ever seen a wild animal stalking its prey before attacking? Most of the time, it waits to attack when the prey has wandered off from its herd or flock, showing that there’s security in numbers.

Knowing this, you can understand the ongoing satanic move to impress upon people that churches aren’t important.

So, some say, “You don’t need to be a member of a church; just serve God generally, and you’ll be fine.” Others spread the idea that you can be raised by listening to different preachers on the Internet.

What they’re trying to do is attempt to pull these Christians out of the security system that God created for them, thereby exposing them to satanic attacks.

Therefore, be smart. The Bible says that an heir, as long as he’s a child, is placed under tutors and governors until a time set by the Father (Galatians 4:1-2). Also, He tells us not to forsake the assembly of the local church, as some do (Hebrews 10:25).

Therefore, when someone claims, “I go to many churches; I don’t have any particular one,” it is evident that they’ve been taken in by the deception of Satan.

The structures that God has set in His Word are important; they have to be used for the purposes for which the Lord set them. You not only grow in the church, but you also learn and participate in ministry to others.

In the church, the pastoral ministry feeds the members by teaching them how to live victoriously as Christians every day while we wait for the imminent return of Christ.

Salvation is only the first step in winning souls, so lead them to church. Their safety, spiritual development, enrichment, and ministry all benefit from it.

Dear Father, thank you for the opportunity to be a member of the body of Christ and participate actively in Church. I pray for new Christians around the world that they’ll understand the Church as your security system for them—a place of refuge, comfort, and refreshing. And as they come to and stay in Church, they’ll grow spiritually and be effective in the work and ministry of reconciliation, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
