Most folks look forward to weekends. It’s a time for a little extra sleep, some catch-up on work at home, or perhaps some enjoyable activity. Even the most spontaneous people usually have some kind of weekend plan.
One thing vital to our weekend is worship with God’s people. It’s one of the wisest decisions we can make and habits we can develop. Our choice to attend church consistently each weekend helps ensure sustained spiritual health and strength, stronger relationships, and better emotional health. Some studies have even linked regular church participation as a factor in improved physical health. Perhaps these reasons instinctively prompted King David to write these words in Psalm 122:1 (KJV) “I was glad when they said unto me, ‘Let us go into the house of the Lord.’”
The New Testament writer of Hebrews reminded us of the importance of church life. Look at his words in Hebrews 10:25 (TLB) “Let us not neglect our church meetings, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back is drawing near.”
What are you doing this weekend? Whatever your plans, include church!
