Identify reasons for coming to church (worship) regularly from today’s text
Lord thank You for Pastors who preach Your Word. I look forward to going to church and hearing from Your Holy Word. You use the Pastor’s words to teach me about how to use the scriptures, how the scriptures apply to my life today, about Your grace, forgiveness, and how much You love me even though I have sinned and fallen short. The words that the pastor speaks oftentimes seems like he is speaking directly to my life situation. I have heard others say the same thing. That can only be possible through Your Holy Spirit. I thank You for Your Word, for Your Spirit and for the pastors who You have sent to deliver the word to us in the church. Amen
