Title: Not Forsaking The Assemblies


1
Not Forsaking The Assemblies
  • . . . and let us consider how to stimulate one
    another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our
    own assembling together, as is the habit of some,
    but encouraging one another and all the more as
    you see the day drawing near. (Hebrews 1024-25)

    important place to be Sunday AM, Sunday PM and
    Wednesday PM.

The Important Reasons To Be At Worship At Those
Times
  • 1. It is a date (appointment) with the Lord.
  • But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city
    of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to
    myriads of angels, to the general assembly and
    church of the firstborn who are enrolled in
    heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the
    spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to
    Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the
    sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the
    blood of Abel. (Hebrews 1222-24)

5
The Important Reasons To Be At Worship At Those
Times
  • 2. It is important for you.
  • How do you deal with distractions?
    Discouragements? God has provided churches to
    help.

6
The Important Reasons To Be At Worship At Those
Times
  • 3. Your presence is important to us.
  • and let us consider how to stimulate one another
    to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own
    assembling together, as is the habit of some, but
    encouraging one another and all the more as you
    see the day drawing near.

7
The Important Reasons To Be At Worship At Those
Times
  • 4. To send the message that worshiping God with
    the church is important.

8
The Important Reasons To Be At Worship At Those
Times
  • 5. Because we must have a sense of urgency about
    every spiritual thing to get to heaven.

9
Philippians 37-14
  • But whatever things were gain to me, those things
    I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ.
    More than that, I count all things to be loss in
    view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ
    Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss
    of all things, and count them but rubbish so that
    I may gain Christ, and may be found in Him, not
    having a righteousness of my own derived from the
    Law, but that which is through faith in Christ,
    the righteousness which comes from God on the
    basis of faith, that I may know Him and the power
    of His resurrection and the fellowship of His
    sufferings, being conformed to His death in
    order that I may attain to the resurrection from
    the dead.

10
Philippians 37-14
  • Not that I have already obtained it or have
    already become perfect, but I press on so that I
    may lay hold of that for which also I was laid
    hold of by Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not
    regard myself as having laid hold of it yet but
    one thing I do forgetting what lies behind and
    reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on
    toward the goal for the prize of the upward call
    of God in Christ Jesus.

11
The Important Reasons To Be At Worship At Those
Times
  • 5. Because we must have a sense of urgency about
    every spiritual thing to get to heaven.
  • Paul had fear and urgency no matter how
    successful he had become spiritually.
  • Peter did as well, 2 Peter 15-11.
  • It should be urgent for everyone to come to our
    services for the sake of our soul and goal.

12
There are some things more important and urgent
than Sunday AM/PM/Wednesday PM Services
  • Pauls example
  • Prison for the sake of the gospel, Acts 2427
  • Being a good Samaritan, Luke 1030-37.
  • Illness and Recovery
  • Work?

Conclusion
  • Be at all of our assemblies because
  • It is worship to the Lord.
  • It is Gods plan to help you
  • You are needed to help us
  • We need to send the message that what we are
    doing is important.
  • Getting to heaven is going to require maximum
    urgency and effort.
