Daily Devotional – 6/30/14 “Are you a fair weather Saint?”

How can we continually expect God to bless us abundantly, keep on crying out come on and see about Jesus, pray Lord I need you or sing Jesus be a fence when God can only anticipate us going to worship service when the weather is fair? I mean, how can we assume God is alright with us not worshipping with other blood bought believers because it’s raining outside? I find it odd that we can go EVERYWHERE else in the rain except church. The weather report can say tornado yet we will still go out to eat but then act crazy when choir rehearsal isn’t canceled. I don’t get it. What’s the difference about going to church when it’s raining or when it’s 90+ degrees? Isn’t God still worthy of praise? Oh but let the pastor not show up and it’ll be a church meeting scheduled so fast. Yet aren’t we all accountable? The bible says in Hebrews 10:23-25, “Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful and let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works not staying away from our worship meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” I don’t know what you read but there isn’t any mention of only going to church when the weather is good. We’ve got to stop neglecting that which we know we’re supposed to do. One day a week for however long your worship service is, isn’t asking you for too much. Stop picking and choosing when you’ll serve God. Stop picking and choosing when you’ll worship. Stop giving God the leftovers when He should be served first. All I’m saying is stop allowing your worship to be based on the weather, stop being a fair weather Saint (only serving when the weather is fair) and just be a Saint who is ready, willing and able to serve and worship at all time because you never know when you won’t be able too.
