On Sunday mornings, on the way to the church meetings, we see people walking, jogging, and riding bikes. All along the short distance we travel, dozens of people have risen on their day off to take care of their health.

All the people rose early in the morning to hear him in the temple area.
Luke 21:38 CEB

In the meantime, few manage to get up in the morning to meet with Jesus.

Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian. People delight in repeating that phrase. And it has a tad of truth to it.

On the other hand, you can’t be a Christian without serving the brethren, participating in the life of the church, being present in the midst of God’s people.

Whoever has followed our devotionals for some time know that we speak very little about “going to church.” Because the person who has really converted to Christ gets up early (or gets going whatever the set time) to hear the Lord in the midst of the church.

Who doesn’t go hasn’t converted yet.
