“We Just Don’t Go to Church”
A young couple who had not been to church services for a number of years asked, “What have we done wrong besides not going to church?”
They had robbed God of thousands of dollars (1 Cor. 16:1,2); they had forsaken the Lord’s own memorial supper (1 Cor. 11:23-26); for years their voices were unheard in the praises of the saints, their petitions and thanksgivings absent from the prayers of the saints, and their knowledge of God’s word stifled and fading, while their spiritual growth was completely neglected – to say nothing of the bad example set and the wrong influence exerted upon others around them! Indeed, their souls had become dead to God, and yet they ask: “What have we done wrong besides not going to church?” May God help us to see ourselves as He sees us!
