Among the books which influenced me as a young Christian was Halley’s Bible Handbook.
Halley stated: “If all Christian people would stir themselves up to be faithful, in this one fundamental Christian duty of going to Church every Sunday, it would set forward the influence of the Church, and the Christ for whom the Church stands, more than all the rest of the things the churches are doing put together.”
Halley wrote the above in the first half of the 20th Century, when Christians still considered church attendance a duty. It seems it has become an option in the 21st Century.
What do you think? Do you consider Church attendance an obligation?
“God instituted the Church, and God appointed the First Day of the week as Church Day. All Christendom has so recognized it and has made this day a day of cessation from the ordinary activities of life,” wrote Halley.
There is nothing more important going on in your community tomorrow morning than Sunday Worship services. At God’s appointed time, turn out, en masse, to honor HIM in whose name the Church exists.
