24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. – Hebrews 10:24-25, NOV
Sometimes I hear God the most when I buck convention. I want to be part of a good congregation so badly, but I also just want God to myself. I don’t think it’s suppose to work that way.
A friend once shared with me that we discuss the scriptures almost everything we are together, whether on the phone or in person. If God is part of almost every conversation, His word always discussed, have I forsaken the assembling together with other believers? I was raised incorporating church (building) attendance on the regular, but lately I haven’t been lead to attend any in my current town. No place is speaking to me. I’ve attended more services online for a churches a few hours or states away. I read my Bible daily and commune with God daily. I share God at work and when I go about my day. I even tried a local congregation for Wednesday night Bible study a few times.
Is that what it’s like when you love someone? You tell everyone about Him. My circle is small, but ever expanding. I believe the true church, the body of believers is that way too. Is there one building that can hold us all?Sharing Is Caring
