BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY, AUGUST 02, 2020

We welcome you to FEA, where we are overcoming through the power of the Word. May God bless you richly today.

A recent article in the Christian Post by Rev. Mark Cree, stressed the importance of corporate public worship even during a pandemic.He calls attention to the habitual practice of Jesus in going to the temple, “And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day…” (Luke 4:16). It is difficult to diminish the critical importance of attending corporate public worship when we understand that even Jesus Christ Himself made it a habit. Regular church attendance is something that should characterize the life of everyone who identifies as a follower of Christ. In one of the great exhortations of Scripture, we as Christians are told not to engage in “forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” (Heb. 10:25).

A recent report from Barna Research states that “One-third of all practicing Christians haven’t been watching either their church online or another church’s streaming worship services since the state lockdowns…” The report said this trend highlights the importance of churches continuing to reach out and disciple the next generation, especially those who are seemingly falling away during the pandemic.

This Barna report comes at the same time a particular megachurch pastor, who has a high national profile, just announced that his church is suspending in-person services until 2021. The pastor said the reason was that the leadership could not guarantee the safety of the congregants. But, according to Rev. Mark Cree, one can’t help wondering which safety this pastor was speaking about, the people’s physical or spiritual health? It appears that he was speaking about being unable to protect them from COVID-19. “But is the spiritual somehow less vital than the physical?” asked Rev. Cree. He made reference to the one hundred and thirty-five cases of persecution that occurred in the first half of 2020 against Christians in India. Some were lynched, some experienced community ostracization and even sexual assault according to one report. Do we think that their church leadership could guarantee their safety when attending church?”  

We are living in a time when we are experiencing the birth pangs of the end time. Those birth pangs increase with intensity each passing day. Certain signs of the times indicate that the return of Jesus Christ is very

near. Isn’t that what the Scripture is telling us in Hebrews 10:25 which we referred to earlier? Since our redemption is drawing near, isn’t this the time when we should be following our Lord’s example by giving ourselves all the more to the place of worship and prayer? May we commit ourselves to doing so.
