Some assembly required

(This was written during a long work trip to China, probably while working in Xian, I didn’t know of any churches in that city. Dalian had made thriving multi-national church that I could attend. The main message in this is if you can go to church, go to church. We as a body of believers need each other, just like the cells and organs of our won body need each other. If you can go- go to church).

I love and miss my church

I am reading through the Psalms and saw this in Psalm 5:

“But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house; in reverence I will bow down toward your holy temple.

Lead me, o Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies- make straight your way before me.

11 But let all who take refuge in you be glad;

let them ever sing for joy.

Spread your protection over them,

that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

12 Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;

you surround them with your favor as with a shield.”

Its Sunday morning here. I haven’t gotten to go to Church in 4 weeks. I can’t remember the last time I went this long without church. I’m feeling lonely and isolated. I haven’t sung in worship for 4 weeks.

Fellowship and the gathering of Gods people to encourage and teach and touch and heal and pray with and play with, it’s a privilege.

Don’t miss it if you can go, go! Be with other believers.

“Do not forsake the assembling together”.

I love and miss my church.

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?

One thought on “Some assembly required”

  1. I was just reading Psalm 5 today. And I have been in Xi’an, though I don’t think we traveled at the same time. I can totally feel the isolation that was in that place, and some are feeling this same isolation in the US; though we have churches all around us. We need Jesus, we need each other, let’s get back to meeting, worshiping, encouraging and loving the people around us . . together. Preach it!
