Thought for the day! (Lives of the saints)

“By God’s all-wise appointment, our assemblies ( churches/ gatherings) are the food and nourishment of our souls. It is the main way whereby we identify with Christ and His gospel. WE EVIDENCE OUR LOVE  FOR CHRIST BY OUR LOYALTY AND SUPPORT FOR ONE ANOTHER in opposition to all false worship. MANY THINGS WILL RISE UP IN COMPETITION TO THE DILIGENT ATTENDANCE OF OUR ASSEMBLIES (CHURCHES). We must recognise and refuse to give in to anything that opposes what Christ commands. The total falling away of a graceless professor always begins with this neglect, this disassociation with God’s people”
John Owen

Bold capitals are mine. There are good and valid reasons reasons why we cannot always attend church. (Sickness, holidays etc.) But There is also the problem that we face when we do not seek first the Kingdom of God. Let us overturn complacency, let us run to the Master instead of running from Him, let us turn from coldness of heart and warm our hearts in fellowship with Jesus and His people.
Blessings
