For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:20
There are a lot of churches that have chosen to cancel mid-week services. They started off power packed with the preaching of God’s Word. They changed to a time of prayer and youth meetings. Nothing wrong with these things but attendance dropped off. The pastor tried to change it up and go to small groups but it becomes no more than a small group of the faithful few. Then one day he says he feels like the mid-week service is a thing of the past. People are too busy with life. They can’t get here so we are just going to cancel our mid-week service in order to let families rest from their hard work week. To have more family time--- sounds good???? No- No- No!
Do you believe the Lord’s return is close? Do you believe He could call His children home at any time? I am reminded today of this verse, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: AND SO MUCH THE MORE, AS YE SEE THE DAY APPROACHING. Hebrews 10:25”—
Emphasis to that verse was added by me because instead of cancelling services…WE NEED TO GO TO THEM MORE! We need to hear the Gospel! I need to hear once again how He died for me! How He was buried and rose again the third day! I need to hear the preaching of God’s Word because it lifts me up! So where are you going to church tonight????????
