Acts 2:46  And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

Let's write about the midweek service this morning.  Its the Lord that has put in my heart a love for the House of God. Every time the doors are open my heart is stirred to be able to go and worship the God of Heaven at a set aside place.  I thank God that I have that place here in Sanford Maine where the brethren can come and be blessed by the LORD!
But really what has happened to the midweek service.  Through the years their has been a lazy attitude taken about this service.  Now let's talk about this.  Is the Bible preached on Wednesday?  Are the songs of Zion sung on Wednesday?  Is their prayer offered on Wednesday?  Is the fellowship just as contagious on Wednesday?  So what's holding us back?  Why then is the attendance sometimes lower on Wednesdays then other services.  Well it could be work which is understandable or it could be Providential situations which is understandable but most of the time it's the HEART!  When our hearts are cold against the LORD we don't have the same desire to come and meet with God's people.  Think about what we do at times when we don't come on a Wednesday or Sunday night.  We just sit at home, watch a t.v. show, sit by a fire or pond, talk to friends...........  You say wow preacher that's kind of hard.  No, not al all!   It just shows that are hearts are cold.  Don't you think it's about time that we did business with the LORD today and got our hearts right with HIM?
Let's make it a point to prepare ourselves today and come the House of God tonight ready to be fed from the Word of God and shout the victory!
Tonight I'm pumped about preaching the Word of God and welcoming a Missionary Lady from Arizona!  It's going to be good!  I wouldn't miss it for nothing!
See you there?

Serving the Lord Jesus Christ with a Smile
