Why do we go to church? Is it any different from all the other places and events in our lives where we also meet people?
I this metaphor explains the difference well: If your favourite singer invites you to his or her concert, do you think you go there for the singer or for the crowd? The lesson here is to remember who the host of the “party” is: Turn your eyes upon Jesus.
There is a well-known gym company called Fitness24/7, but I think we should also remember that our faith is 24/7. Faith 24/7, even when I am overwhelmed with my work, please Lord, help me to be with you all the time: Ora et labora.
