6-29-14 I Don't Have To

"Sorry guys, I can't go, I gotta go to church Sunday morning."

I wonder how many times I have caught myself saying something along those lines. It's true, I don't have to go to church.  I can stay home, I can go to a car show, or take the camera out along the lake, or sleep in.  I can sit down a write a funny story, just for fun. I can go out for breakfast at a restaurant. I don't have to go…

I get to go to church!  It’s a privilege!  I get to hear the Word of God preached!  I get to fellowship with other Christians!  I get to sing the old time hymns and spiritual songs.  I get to hear others sing about Jesus.  I get to have my cup filled!  I get to enjoy a spiritual meal - the meat of the Word! Sunday morning is special! Then I can go Sunday evening and Wednesday evening, too! I can go home saying, "It was good to be in the house of the LORD this morning!"

I know that I don't have to go to church, but I would miss out! I know that you don't have to go to church, but I sure hope I see you there.

"I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD." Psalm 122:1.
