Why Aren't We Assembling?

The unknown author of the book of Hebrews wrote some awesome passages of scriptures from a known God. One of my favorite is Hebrew 10:25 " Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."

Growing up my siblings and I were encouraged and commanded to attend church. As I grew older and went off to college, I thought that I would play hooky for a few Sundays only to find out that my life felt like it was missing something. The feeling was correct I was missing something my soul was being starved from the very thing that was responsible for it to even be in my body. I needed to be refilled and restored with the WORD of GOD!

As a pastor in this very different society, I find myself making calls and visiting parishioners because I have not seen or heard from them in weeks, months and even years. I never once had a pastor to call or contact me because I was missing in action at the assembling we call church. Never once had the principal had to call home because I was missing for a week(maybe one class). Never once did any of my bosses call because I was missing in action for an extended period of time from work.

What I am trying to say is that once we realize the importance of anything we make it our business to be in attendance. The day of judgement is approaching!

See you at church Sunday :)
