“I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
in the company of the upright,
in the congregation” (Ps. 111:1).
Matt Manry writes:
“Let’s just face the facts. Today, many Christians do not think attending church is that important. In the past, Christians believed that actively being a part of a church body was absolutely necessary to one’s faith. There used to be an understanding in Christian families that unless one was deathly ill or there was a family emergency, you just never ever missed church. So what has changed and caused so many people to view the church as a disposable good rather than an integral part of one’s spiritual life?”
