And All the More


It was very, very crowded.

Every year, the town hosts a craft festival on a weekend.

I would guess that thousands of people come to browse items like artwork, handmade jewelry and pottery.

The festival is held downtown, just blocks from the church that I attend.

People were parking anywhere they could and walking sometimes quite a distance to get to the festivities.

Watching the groups of people walk by the front of the church on their way to peruse the various booths and displays, I had a thought.

What if all these people were walking up and down the street in order to get to a church service?

Besides the church that I attend, there is another church located diagonally across the street from it.

What if parking lots were filling up and people were parking their cars along the streets and walking briskly to church?

Sadly, I have never seen that many people coming to church on a Sunday morning.

Hebrews 10:23-25 reads:

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.  And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,  not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

It’s important to go to church.

To study with others.

To worship with others.

To talk about the concerns of our hearts.

How about you?

If you haven’t been to church in awhile, why not go this Sunday?

It’s important—and all the more as we see the day that Jesus returns is drawing nearer.

    Having grown up in a Christian environment that I had to pass Bible as a subject before I could graduate high school, I too used to think Jesus is coming soon, until I was guided to the Vedas, that taught me this iron age last for 432 000 years which you will see on this link:
