I have heard people give different excuses for not going to Church especially on sundays, some say that the Church is in the heart and so they can as well stay at home on a service day to have their time of worship with God.
Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with having fellowship with God in your apartment but it is way beneficial to join fellow brethren in worship. The Church as we all know is not the building, but the gathering of 2 or more brethren.
I love this particular passage in the Bible because it gives a true picture of what is obtainable in the Church setting; Hebrews 12 vs 22-24 “But ye are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel”.
Now, let us take a look at what we benefit from going to Mount Zion.
1. Company of Angels; waiting to carry out instructions at your command. They also do a complete check on your body and service any malfunctioning part.
2. God the judge of all; the highest court in the world where your case is justified.
3. Jesus the mediator; consistently making intercessions on your behalf.
4. The blood of sprinkling; you are sprinkled with that blood which represents sanctification, and you also means that you carry the mark of Christ making you a touch not for the enemy.
6. Instructions and directions from your teachers.
Isaiah 30 vs 20 “And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: 21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left”
If for any reason you feel you are not really comfortable about your place of worship, you could pray about it and ask God for directions because everyone has his own place and pastor.
Remember; the farther you are from the presence of God the more vulnerable you become for the enemy.
Peradventure you have been going to Church and you know within your heart that you don’t have a personal relationship with God, kindly say this prayer of faith now
“ Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I am a sinner, forgive me my sins and wash me with your blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the living God. I believe you died for me and on the third day you rose again that I might be justified. I accept you today as my Lord and Saviour. Now I believe I am born again and a child of God. Thank you Jesus Christ for saving me and giving me a fresh start” Amen!
You definitely don’t want to miss the next service in Church! Jesus loves you and we also do.
