Sometimes it is just as important what Scripture doesn’t say than what it actually says; take Hebrews 10 v 25 for example.
This does not say, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together on a Sunday morning, as the manner of some is”.
The writer of the Hebrews advises us not to forsake assembling together, thus implying we can “assemble together” at any time.
I’m writing this as I wait for some of the fellowship to come round for a Bible study where we dissect, discussion and sometimes debate the sermon from Sunday.
And one of the most blessed times I’ve had this week so far was a meeting with some of the men of the church in Costa to have a wee “Bible study lock in”.
I love my Sunday mornings in church, however I enjoy “doing church” throughout the week as well.
We need to be reminded sometimes that the early church met daily, in the temple and in homes, showing us their commitment to one another (Acts 2 v 46).
When we assemble together we do more than just meet; the word assemble to me talks of building something and enlarging something, like assembling a Lego model.
It is no coincidence that when we meet some people need to be encouraged and some are ready to encourage; some are feeling a bit low and some are feeling rather excited.
We are here to encourage, edify and exhort one another, to help each other through this walk we call life.
Life, even the Christian life, cannot be done alone; we all need others to help us and we also all need others to help.
Speak this out today…..”Lord I thank you for my brothers and sisters, for Christian fellowship”.
Hebrews 10 v 24 and 25…..And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much more, as ye see the day approaching
