" not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day[return of Christ] drawing near."- Hebrews 10:25
What if you wanted to join a health club or some organization. You filled out the form, you were accepted into the club or organization, you even paid the initial fees. Then you never attended. You said you were a member of the Lions Club or Rotary or this gym or that gym and you never attended. You never participated in any meeting, any community projects, you never supported the organization you committed to, would you think or believe you were a member in good standing?
And yet, we have those who join a church, fill out the form, the membership accepts them and they never attend or attend seldom. They never support the church they committed to. Should they refer to themselves as members in good standing?
Abba Father, help me to love, pray for those who have neglected their church. Help me to not be judgmental or critical. Help me understand why they don't do what they aid they would do.- Amen!
