Be there. For them. For Him.
Church is not only an event, but a people. Church is definitely not a place, though time and place are essential. In church activities happen, but it’s more, a realm of Being.
Having said that, we go to church (that’s a very biblical phrase, BTW) to give, more than to receive. (More blessed, remember?) We go for our brothers and sisters in Christ, for their edification. We go for God, to meet him in a sacred moment, to glorify, and glory in, him; we go for Christ, to obey and find him.
Church is not a ritual to satisfy a legal demand, but one of many acts of obedience. There, life is found and lived and rejoiced in.
Be there today.
