Fellowship is a Key
For reasons that I don't care to go into right now, of late I haven't been able to keep my church attendance up to the same extent that I was able to in other seasons of my life. With this I see a difference in the level of power that I project as I go about my daily business.
I believe that fellowship with other believers is one of the keys to the power that we possess as Christians. Fortunately a number of my church members are a part of the same online social networks that I frequent as well as other Christians that I've been blessed to build relationships with, and I'm able to gain some degree of fellowship in this manner, but it's just not the same as actually assembling together in God's House.
I'm aggressively working to correct this failure on my part to obey God's command, but still at the heart of it all there really is no excuse. Encouraging, correcting, exhorting, and walking life's road together through fellowship is an integral part of our overall spiritual success.
I can't wait to get back to regular attendance, and if you're slacking in this area I encourage you to make more of an effort to get back in line with this too. It fills my heart with joy to think of the day that we'll all experience ultimate fellowship together -- when we all get together in His heavenly kingdom.
Have you had seasons in your life that for whatever reason you weren't able to, or just didn't, attend church regularly. Could you see a difference in your life because of this?
"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." Hebrews 10:25
