    Going to church today will do you no good 


    Yes, you read the title correctly. Going to church today will do you no good,

    • if you do not go in order to seek the Lord’s presence, Hb 11.6;
    • if you do not worship him in spirit and in truth, Jo 4.24;
    • if you go looking only to receive rather than give, Ac 20.35;
    • if you go to perform and get attention, rather than to edify, 1Co 14;
    • if you go merely out of a sense of obligation, and not spurred by a sense of gratitude, Psa 28.7; 2Co 9.7. (More …)

      I just agree with this title too much to even comment, but here I am. . . it’s absolutely true. Sad, but true. My church is every time I find another Christian who sincerely follows Jesus from their heart, and usually that’s on the street somewhere.

    Not home yet 

    I’ve read this story before, but bro. Mike Benson shares it again as a wonderful reminder to all who dedicate themselves to the progress of the gospel in the Kingdom of God.

      Yes, I’m afraid most Christians will not receive very many accolades here on earth, but our treasures and accolades are awaiting us in that next existence (Matthew 6:19; Matthew 25:21,23).
