Place of Worship

People have often said that they can worship God anywhere—on the lake, at the golf course, hiking, etc. Since this is true, some reason that they don’t really need to go to church on Sunday and worship with other believers.

I consider myself a strong proponent of church attendance. However, on a recent trip to the beach, I found myself understanding what people experience when they sense God’s presence in nature. As I walked along the beach on a Sunday morning, I worshiped God right where I was. I acknowledged him as the Creator of the universe. I praised him for who he is and what he has done. I really did worship God in spirit and in truth, right there on the beach.

Then I got cleaned up and went to church, just like the Bible says we should do.

“Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”—Hebrews 10:25.
