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” (Hebrew 10:25).

What excuse can we give God about not attending services—both class and worship services? Times for all services have not changed for many years and are published in the bulletin, on the bulletin board outside the church building and on our WEB site.
What examples are we setting for each other and our children? Are we showing them how important worshiping God is, or is not attending acceptable?
Our meeting starts in just a few days and the question is--- where will we be, and have we invited others? Let us be able to answer God that we were worshipping Him; or, will we hold our head down in shame and say I was somewhere else.

I Am Well Pleased
By Charlie Gamble
    When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." Matt 3:16-17 (NKJV)
    Jesus began His public ministry at age 30. Up until that time we have little information about His life. This acknowledgement tells us how He lived. It was in a manner that pleased the Father. He lived righteously without sin. Even though tempted in all points as we, He remained holy.
    Some day we all hope to hear, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant …. enter now into the joy of the Lord (Matt. 25:24 edited). In order for that to happen, we must live righteously, repent of our sins and follow the holy way of Jesus. We must be pleasing to the Father.

My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; He walks in a perfect way ,he shall serve me" (Psalm 101:6).
