Hebrews 10:24,25

24  And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good

deeds,  25  not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but

encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Christianity is not a faith which God intended to be lived out alone.

Encouraging others and being encouraged by others are both essential to the life

of a believer. The word church when taken back to its roots means “assembly.” It was an assembly of believers. Not a building, not a place; but the people in the assembly.

In our world we have made the word “Church” into a building. We have

made the “assembly” of Christians into a disassembly of personal beliefs. With the

inventions of the internet and mobile communications we have disassembled

even farther. As we watch services on TV, as we listen to radio broadcasts, as we

say we are being the church from our living rooms or a million other places; we

are missing the reason “Assembly” was called for. Nothing will take the place of a

personal “Hello” or a “How Ya Doing”. Nothing can take the place of a hug in a

time of sorrow. Nothing can replace a smile in person.

If we are going to teach our children what life is about, we need to live that

life with them. Our youth get lost in the impersonal, dangerous, ever consuming

pressures of “Social Media”, sports, and academics they don’t get the childhood

they need to grow. Remember church will only be important to our youth, if they

get to see what it is about. I pray we as adults don’t take that experience away

because of our indifferences or opinions. When the line is used “I will let them

decide for themselves” remember the world is not as easy. The world will

convince them of what ever it is trying to sell at the time. It will bombard them

with information until they conform to its plan.

Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life, may we come together and

celebrate that with our families often.

We read the Bible for many reasons. Some to find peace in times of turmoil, some to find comfort after the loss of a loved one, some out of curiosity as to what the future may hold, and some for the h

When we are young and hear “Let me help you” the first thing we say is “No I can do it by myself”. It is a built-in response that we all seem to have. As we get older we tend to let someone give us a
