(Have No Excuse For Missing Church Services)

TO THE BIBLE: Hebrews 10:25 CEV
“Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship, but we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other, especially since you know that the day of the Lord’s coming is getting closer.”

A young man told the story of how he hadn’t attended church services for about four years due to his tight schedule at school.

Moreover, there was no local assembly close to where he lived. That’s unacceptable because, today, church services are being streamed online, and anyone can always hook up to the service from where he or she is.

If you’re a Christian, you’ve got to be a member of a local church, and you have no excuse for missing church services.

Remember, the Church is a place of hope, succour, and solution. It’s the place where the Word of God is taught, and the knowledge of God’s Word is what puts you over in life.

In Church, your faith is built strong, and you also have the opportunity for rich fellowship with other Christians and the Holy Spirit.

If there’re peculiar situations or challenges that hinder your church attendance protractedly, there’re ways to go about them.

You can participate live in church services through several online platforms that are available.
When those who were in Caesar’s house couldn’t come to church, what did the Apostle Paul do? He helped them start a church in Caesar’s palace.

Think about that! And in Philippians 4:22, he made reference to the saints in Caesar’s household.

We do the same for those who have been incarcerated for different offences and are serving jail terms that could span many years. We set up a church right inside the prison, so they’ll learn, fellowship, and grow in Christ.

There’s no excuse good enough for continually missing church services. So, like the Lord Jesus (Luke 4:16), have the culture, routine, and personal discipline to always be in church when you should.

I’m so glad that I’m an active member of the Church of the living God, where my life is constantly upgraded with the Word. In God’s presence and fellowship, I’m continually built, strengthened, and established in the truth of the Gospel, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
