In a few minutes I'll be leaving our house in Cokato to "go to church." I'm going to get together with other people who will be publicly speaking Jesus' name, singing His praise, listening to His Word. I expect that the Lord will speak to me through the Word of God and through the interpretation that is given to that Word by the one(s) who speak. I expect to leave the gathering today with renewed hope and faith. I hope to be challenged and corrected and convicted of sin. And I expect to hear the forgiving good news of Jesus' sacrificial perfect love.
Don't look for a perfect church. Pray and go. Whether that church meets in a home or in some larger building, go there. Don't remain alone.
