The teaching of the importance of personal relationship with Christ was in every service as far as I can remember. A couple of times this question was posed : if one day we wake up and we can’t meet as we do on Sunday for church, Tuesday for prayers, Life Group , and any other meeting for that (because of any reason at all), are we going to be OK, am I going to be OK?
I am in that place now, away from home, the language is different, the people are different, the way people relate in and out of church is different. I have been so uncomfortable to go to churches here because it’s a very small community and people tend to talk about anything and everything . (Just attended church 3 times only in the past 4 months I think). My quiet time is virtually the only time. I am constantly searching. I desire to be in that place of praying constantly. What does it look like for me even at work and in my life here in general : I am still learning from the Holy Spirit.
BUT OH HOW I MISS CHURCH, I MISS KP!!! I was home, I was part of a family, Life Group, the relationships. … May God continue to bless and increase you in everything.
So , I asked myself if I was too needy, to need church and people and that sense AND presence of community? The verse that came to my mind was Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembly of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much more, as ye see the day approaching. I also found Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. So I am still trying to be in a church.
