Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Thought of the day—

One of the dangerous tactics the devil uses against Christians is to lull them into spiritual isolation. If he succeeds, the spiritual damage will be severe. This all begins with developing a low view of the local church and how vital she is for our spiritual health. Soon, church is perceived as optional, even substituted for worldly activities and events. A Sunday is missed, then two, till soon more being absent than present occurs. Now the devil’s work is done. The Christian has isolated his or herself and is lulled into a spiritual slumber. A delusion has occurred in this Christian who now believes one may be a healthy Christian without active and faithful fellowship with other Christians through the local church. And one of the evidence this has happened is the defensive spirit the Christian displays when confronted about inconsistent church attendance (Hebrews 10:23-25).
