When something bothers me I have to get it off my chest. I am troubled by folks who just don’t go to church or synagogue. I am talking about true believers in Yeshua.
Yes, they love the Lord, yes, they pray and listen for His voice, but it’s not the same! Here’s why: They are missing out on corporate worship, on hugging and being hugged by their mishpochah (family). They are missing out on opportunities to bless others and receive blessings. And besides, there is safety in numbers!
We need each other! We need others to hold us accountable. And we need to use our gifts to bless others in the congregation. Even if you feed the poor and memorize the whole Bible, please do not forget to attend and commit to your congregation.
We won’t talk about membership here, that is a whole different discussion. Just remember that Satan likes to keep you really busy so that you just don’t have time to go to services.
Your family is waiting for you. Let them love you!
