DAY 25 SATURDAY: JULY 2020

GOING TO CHURCH IS COMPULSORY TO BELIEVERS!

But if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth (1 Timothy 3:15).

Going to church is not optional but compulsory for every believer in life. Some persons give excuses why they failed to attend church services in life. There is no excuse worthy enough to prevent you from church services in life. The Bible says in the opening text that if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that it is highly compulsory for every believer to go and worship God in the church which is His house in life. Going to church is compulsory to all believers because God deserves it in life forever.

The church of God is the house of the living God; the pillar and the ground of the truth in life. It is there one experiences the awesome presence of God in manifold blessings in life. That is why King David testified in Psalm 122:1 thus, “I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go into the house of the Lord.” Therefore, a Christian should always be full of joy whenever he finds himself in the house of God which is the church of the Lord in life. Everyone is expected to be glad and joyous in the church and house of God in life. Do not give room for hindrances to your church services because one’s growth and developments in life both physically and spiritually depend greatly in it forever.

The Bible warns us vividly not to forsake the gathering of God’s children because His awesome presence is always there in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Hebrew 10:25, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” In fact, whenever a Christian comes to the house of God which is the church for worship, he is exhorting and sharpening his spirit in the Lord in life. Take note of the fact that iron sharpens iron in life forever (Proverbs 27:17).

Daily Tip: God wants you to take note of the fact that going to church services is never optional but compulsory to every believer in Christ Jesus forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And they continued steadfastly in the apostle’s doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers (Acts 2:42).
