This came up on my feed on facebook this morning and it is so worth the read.
Why I Attend Wednesday Night Church Services
april 22, 2019 by preacherpollard, posted in bible class, bible classes, bible school, bible study, uncategorized
I need the fellowship of Christian family in the middle of a week spent exposed to the world.
I draw strength from the teaching of God’s Word and the comments others make on the subject being studied.
Others need my encouragement and influence, and my presence can be so faith-building to them.
Bible class teachers have taken precious time to prepare and deliver their material.
I believe God is pleased with my making such a commitment and a sacrifice, though it’s so little compared to all that He has done for me.
It builds my interest in spiritual things.
I believe it helps contribute to the overall strength and influence of the local church.
It is an affirmation of the eldership’s wisdom to have such classes in the first place, where they seek to help give me spiritual food.
I live by the philosophy that I make time for what is most important and valuable.
My family is guided by my leadership and priorities.
I live in a nation that allows me to freely assemble to build and express my faith, and I do not want to take that for granted.
I have so many great memories of Wednesdays, and I continue to make them.
Though I have often arrived tired and frazzled, I have almost always left rejuvenated and rejoicing.
I want to.
What would you add?
