Psalm 122:1, “I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord.”
At Fellowship Church, we call it “the best hour of your week,” and it really is. God intended for our time at church to be a blessing we anticipate, not an obligation we endure. Every week, it is literally a house party, as we come together as a church to experience so many exciting things. We get to connect with others while making lasting friendships. We get to serve alongside one another to provide an excellent, welcoming environment where everyone can experience God. We get to hear and apply God’s Word so we can next level our lives. We get to give generously as we invest in eternity. And, we get to experience God personally as we get “charged up” for the week ahead.
Today’s verse was written by the psalmist years ago, but it is echoed every weekend by thousands who come and experience all God has to offer them every seven days. The church is one of God’s greatest inventions and we are all the blessed beneficiaries! “I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the Lord!”
We are blessed beyond all measure to get to be a part of one of the greatest churches on the planet every week. Make sure you never take this gracious gift from God for granted! Right now, make a personal commitment or talk with your family about making it a priority to never miss a Sunday unless you’re on vacation or ill. Every week is uniquely different, so take advantage of every opportunity you have to attend!
God, we cannot thank you enough for inventing the local church! I personally commit to make it a priority every Sunday and promise to faithfully attend, recommend and defend my church! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
