Cordless telephones are great! They can be used all day long with no "strings" attached. Sometimes I stand outside in the yard while conversing on the phone. There's just one drawback with cordless phones. If you don't set them on the charging unit at night to recharge the battery, you will find yourself getting cut off in the middle of a conversation.
Just as it is important to recharge the battery on the cordless phone, it is imperative to recharge our spiritual battery. Our worship together as a body of believers and family of the faithful serves this purpose. Matthew 18:20
”For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
Two thoughts come to mind.
1) Many weaker Christians don’t see the necessity of worshipping God with other Christians. They believe they have a relationship with God and attending services is somewhat irrelevant - a sign of a low spiritual battery! First century Christians leaned upon each other all they could. They worshipped God as a community distinct from the world. They needed each other, and assemblies were a time of recharging before they went back out into "Satan’s place."
(2) Secondly, many do not see the "re-charging benefit" of public assemblies because they receive no encouragement or conversation on a spiritual level. They may feel left out. They do NOT feel a part of one big happy family. Matthew 7:12
“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.”
Make a commitment to be present at every assembly, if possible. Make a commitment to reach out at each assembly and touch someone's cordless spiritual phone with your recharging unit.
This one little act of faith may help someone draw closer to Christ.
