I am not sure who wrote this poem, but I want to share it with you. It’s about someone who missed the church service.
“You missed the fellowship that’s there,
You missed the handshake, missed the prayer.
You missed the Word of God when read;
You missed the things the preacher said.
You missed the worship’s wondrous hour,
You missed the Spirit’s tender power.
Not only did you miss the chance
Your life in Jesus to enhance,
You missed your chance to do your share,
To build His church, the house of prayer.
And so the loss is yours indeed—
God had no chance to meet your need.”
The early Christians understood the need to gather on a regular basis to worship the Lord together. Let’s make sure that we understand that need too.
“On the first day of the week we came together…”—Acts 20:7
