Did you know that 70% of those who do not attend a church have never been invited? Well, today, I’m inviting you. Church is not a place for righteous, outstanding people, with no problems. You might even consider it a hospital for sinners. It’s where you can go every week to reaffirm what you believe, refresh yourself with the Word and Sacraments, help others who need help, work together, encourage, praise, give thanks and ask God for all your physical and spiritual needs.
Church is like a huge group home, where we gather together and receive nourishment from the Bible. We sing hymns to the glory of our Creator. Sure it’s just a building, but it’s what inside that makes it a church. Those who attend come because they need to be fed, they need God’s forgiveness, they know that His love permeates these walls. What they take home with them is usually more than enough to sustain them for the coming week.
Jesus knew that the temple was a holy place and He went there to pray often. He is our example for all things in life, so let’s follow Him by giving Him the adoration He deserves.
PLEASE COME TO CHURCH TODAY!
Jesus will be there waiting with open arms. He will accept everyone who turns to Him. He doesn’t discriminate. He doesn’t look down His nose at you. He is our brother and He wants everyone to be His heir and live with Him in eternity.
