When we go to church to worship with others, let it not just be for the sake of just going, showing up, it’s what we do on Sunday, or some Sundays. Nor to have a chance to dress up, see who is there, who is not, or to see who came with whom. We are there to worship and lift up the name of Jesus with others.
10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people?If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ
10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
