One of the questions that was asked in the Sunday School material this past Sunday was; Why must we never divorce worship from the gathering with God’s people? Many people around the room had good answers. From his preparation time, the teacher added this from Hebrews 10:23-25.
23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 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.
The teacher went on to talk about how the gathering of God’s people for corporate worship spurred us on toward love and good deeds. I made a note of what he said with the intention of giving it more thought on Monday.
When Monday got here, I was going down my check list of things to do. Number three was to check and see if any new people had signed up for the Feed My Starving Children packing day. Someone new had signed up! That got me to thinking about the Sunday School lesson, and how the teacher had said that the gathering of God’s people spurred us on toward love and good deeds. You see, we talked about the Feed My Starving Children packing day in worship, and the Holy Spirit obviously moved on someone to participate in good deeds. God’s Word is always true!
We still have space for six more people. Children are welcome too. So if you want to be a part of a tremendously good deed, go to http://volunteer.fmsc.org/Register/Group/JoinGroup.aspx?gid=1471058 and sign up.
