Some Thoughts on Hebrews 10:25 by James Avery

Hebrews 10:25

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.

 

It is Sunday morning where I live in North Carolina of The United Sates of America and we are getting about ready to dress for church.

I realize that some of you are in different time zones and even in countries far removed from my location, but I just wanted to ask, are you planning to attend church this Lords day?

 

Look at the verse above once more, and I think you will see there are a number of things that God would have in our lives.

 

  1. Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together,

 

The first is this, it is Gods will for all His children to attend worship service. I know that some perhaps are in professions that hinder some worship because of work schedules etc. but there maybe some reading this that simply plan to use this day for their personal entertainment. Beloved that is sin!

 

  1. but exhorting one another

 

What does my failure to attend church say to our families, friends and neighbors? On the flip side what does our faithful attendance speak to those that know us?

 

  1. so much the more, as ye see the day approaching

 

As you walk though this life, you cannot help but see the disturbing happenings that take place around our world, what do these things say to your heart?

Should you attend church and worship God from a heart of truth or use this day of worship as a day of personal pleasure?

 

Not long ago as I was visiting and inviting folks to church, I and the lady of the house were standing on the front porch talking with me when her husband came home from work. She had just told me that her husband taught Sunday school every 4th Sunday at their church. As I spoke with the two of them I mentioned that I was glad they were faithful in attending the church. Quickly the husband told me he only went on his day to teach. I said well do you not think you should be faithful if you are a teacher. You would have thought I had slapped his face, he became very belligerent and informed me that Sunday was his only day to sleep in. What does that say to you about this man’s relationship with the Lord and what does his actions say to those who know him well?

 

What are your plans  for this Lords day and what will your action say to those that live about you?
