No Traffic Days

If you are like most people, you get up every day and sit in traffic coming and going to work. Your time in transit could add up to about 20 to 40 hours per month just sitting in traffic.
 

Unfortunately, there's a day where cars are challenging to find. Where is everyone? We were commanded to not neglect the gathering together of the saints. Certainly, many did neglect this as our passage describes.

Have you ever said these things to get out of church?
 

  • I'm going to go fishing instead
  • I get up every day for work/school; this is my only day to sleep in
  • I don't feel like going
  • We don't have to go every week
  • Let's stay home and watch a sermon on TV / online
  • If you're not going, I'm not going
  • I read the Bible daily
  • I don't like the church I go to
  • I didn't like what the preacher said last week
  • Church people are hypocrites
  • I feel like I don't fit in
  • People will judge me
  • People will ask me to do something I'm not comfortable with
     

The amount of excuses someone could create is endless. In a previous church, there was a group of people who would attend Sunday School but spend the Worship Service hour simply socializing with each other. That's not honoring God. Get involved with your church and hear God's Word. There’s no room for space between you and your church. This is vital for the believer.
 

Uncommen Questions:

When was the last time you skipped church? Why?

Why do you think God doesn't want us to skip gathering with each other?
 

Uncommen Challenge:
 

I challenge you to review why you go or don't go to church. Search God's Word for why church matters.

Scripture Verse:
Hebrews 10: 24-25
