If you had but one week to live and were able to go to the services of the church, how many would you attend? Would you sleep late and miss Bible study? Would you miss the worship services if company came? Would you come on Sunday morning and fail to attend Sunday night? Would you attend the Bible study on Wednesday night or would you stay and watch television? Would you go fishing Wednesday afternoon and not get back in time for class? If you knew you had one week to live with one more opportunity to attend all the services of the church, would you not make a special effort to do so? Really and truly, do you think you would be ready to die having attended only one service the last week you lived? Should we not decide now that we ought to live every week this way or we will not be ready to die?
And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not 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” (Hebrews 10: 24 & 25).

Our own assembling together” is a commandment to the church, to the Lord’s day worship of the church. This regular Sunday service of worship was set in motion by the apostles, honored by disciples of all ages, and fully recognized as a sacred obligation for all Christians. This obligation was so important that nothing was allowed to hinder early Christians from attending. In some cases they were severely punished for attending.

We today should be of the same mind and determination in attending worship services. I doubt we will be punished by mankind for attending. (RNC)
