See You In Church

A pastor in a resort area invited a family to come to church. The father said, “Thanks, preacher. We hike every Sunday, and we can worship God in the woods.”

Yes, it is true that we can worship God in the woods. We are able, through God’s grace, to enter into His presence anytime and anywhere. Yet, we are called to gather together as Christians and encourage one another and love one another. The church, the body of Christ, has the unique and intentional purpose of worshiping God the Father and serving the world in Christ’s name. The church is the tool that God uses to reach and equip all people for His Kingdom. Coming together as believers to study God’s Word and live in a relationship with one another is not a duty to be dreaded; it is God’s provision and blessing for us.

Prayer: Lord, I pray that I will make it a priority in my life to be involved in local church. I pray that I will take advantage of the opportunity to learn more about You and Your Word. I pray that I will get involved in ministry and use my gifts and talents to serve my community for You. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Scripture for Today: Hebrews 10:24-25
