Missing Church

Missing church is a strange sensation.

Having been grounded for a week or so by a temporary health problem, I find myself in the unusual situation of not attending church on Sunday morning.

For those that might miss now and then this might not seem like a big deal. However, I have always been one who strives for and puts stock in faithful attendance, and whether attending or preaching have always been in church virtually every Lord’s Day morning and often the evening as well.

I greatly enjoy the gathering of the Lord’s people in joyful celebration of His glory and the opening of the Word. Listening to messages online or reading the Word substitute, but is just isn’t the same.

Nonetheless, it is an interesting experience and one that has to a tiny degree given me an appreciation for the plight of those believers whose circumstances remove them from the fellowship of regular assembly for extended periods.

Blessings on this Lord’s Day…
