Assembly Required

A college professor walked into class one day and placed his hat on his desk then went back to the office to get another book. He ran into another professor along the way and was late getting back, past the 10-minute mark which allows students to go and class to be dismissed for the day. The next class came and the professor instructed the students that if his hat was in the room he was in the room and not to leave again as they did the week before. The students got the message and the next class came and when the professor entered the room there were 25 hats on the desks in the room.

 

And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25

 

I started to make this week’s message a surprise so that when you realize what the message is about you wouldn’t skip it on purpose. Then I thought about announcing that the message this week will be randomly preached so that everyone will hear at some point or another. All that aside I do believe that this is a very important message and I do wish everyone would hear it.

Last week we talked about the importance of Prayer in our lives and our journey thru the upcoming year and days of 2017. I believe with all my heart that pray is the first and most important part of our spiritual lives. If it is not the “most” important part it is in the top two with the two in my opinion being faith and prayer.

Next up to our faith and prayer is WORSHIP! A question that gets asked a bunch is “Do I have to attend Worship?” I really don’t think that is the right or correct question we should be asking.

The simple answer to the question is NO, you do not have to attend church. But you should also know that “you do not have to go to heaven” and “you do not have to have a relationship with Jesus”.

We all have a choice and truth is choices have consequences. Satan wants you to believe that worship is not essential or important but that is just a lie of the world.

Worship is beneficial and important to Christians. In my research this week I came across a sermon title written by H.B. Charles Jr. I do not know this pastor or where he pastors but I like the title and I wish to use it for this week’s message myself. The title he used and title of this week’s message will be “ASSEMBLY REQUIRED”. Please join me this week as we discuss our worship.
