“We get used to going — “going to church” is what it is called; the reality is, we, the church, are going to each other, to meet together. We gather to join again as one body, under the headship of Christ, to worship, pray, sing, hear the truths of the Bible, and build one another up in faith and love.We get used to going week in and week out; it becomes a routine, almost a rut — the tendency is to get used to it.
But please don’t!
Don’t get used to it.
When we get used to it, we then have no heart and mind preparation, and we bring no heart with us to the church meeting; then we go without expectancy of God meeting with us personally.So as you go today, stop and get some expectancy in your heart. Ask the Lord Jesus to meet with you today “at church” – at the meeting of His saints; He will do so for seeking and asking souls; when He does, we are changed by Him and we then love the meeting of the church even more.
Today God can meet with you at church; ask Him to, and then bring a hungry expectant heart there with you.“I was glad when they said unto me, ‘Let us go unto the house of the Lord‘ (Psalm 122:1).”
