…..and health to all their flesh. Hearing, obeying and applying the Word of God is like getting a dose of medicine for whatever may be ailing you! Here’s the catch. You have to be present to hear the Word before you can obey and apply it! As your Pastor or Sunday School teacher prepares the sermon or lesson each week, contained in that sermon/lesson is life changing, heart healing, relationship restoring, sight giving, and soul saving medicine. Every time you are absent from the services, you are missing out on that medicine that will bring healing to you. One wouldn’t dare skip out on taking their heart medicine but that’s exactly what one does when they miss church services. And with every dose that is missed, that particular ailment that you’ve been dealing with only gets worse and festers (anger, jealousy, envy, hypocrisy etc.) You want to start feeling healthy again? Come to church….it’s really a hospital for sinners, not a resort for saints!
When man rejects truth it is to his own detriment. He is opposing himself. In other words, we are our own greatest enemy. The greatest opposition one can have against himself is to reject Jesus Christ as Lord and savior in unbelief. However, for the Christian we also oppose ourselves when we refuse to follow Christ in obedience to the truth. The first will realize how great his error is at the great white throne judgment (Rev. 20:11-15). The latter will know at the judgment seat of Christ (Rom. 14:10-12). That is why we should approach those rejecting truth with humility as we ourselves are not immune to temptation nor will we escape the judgment seat (Gal. 6:1).
