To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

Worship, part 2

Some people seem to think that worshiping God is required only on Sunday morning (if that often!) Where does the Bible even imply that? Hebrews 10:24-25 says: "... 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 ..." Sunday morning is "the assembling", but so is Sunday evening (presuming there is a Sunday evening service), so is a mid-week service, and so are any services of a gospel meeting/revival. Also, how can you encourage and provoke anyone to love and good works if you aren't there? Haven't you forsaken the assembling?

What if your spouse cheats on you "only one time". Would you let that go? Weren't you forsaken? What if someone leaked company secrets "only one time". Hadn't that person forsaken the one s/he worked for? I wonder if the employer would overlook it because it was "only once". But if you miss "only one" service, haven't you forsaken God? Numbers 15:32-36 tells of a man who gathered sticks on the sabbath day (rather than remembering to keep the sabbath day, holy) - only one time. Do you know what his punishment was? I'll let you look it up. Had you been living under the law of Moses, what do you think God would have had done to you? Is today any different? Think about it.
