A lot of couples have grown to hate, resent, and snap at each other to the point that they devour one another (Galatians 5:15). Constant warfare in households keep police and homicide detectives busy arresting and looking for clues to crimes. Just let a woman or man be murdered, and the spouse becomes a suspect.
Each married couple needs to realize that marriage is until death and only the innocent partner can divorce the unfaithful for adultery (Romans 7:1-3; Matthew 19:9, 5:32; Mark 10:11-12; Luke 16:18). If a couple does separate because of disagreements they must remain unmarried or work out the problem and return to their spouse (1 Corinthians 7:10-11). Many say they don't love each other anymore. In a case like that, both need to repent (Luke 13:3; Acts 17:30). Both promised in the vow of marriage to love each other until death, and they need to fulfill that promise to God (Ecclesiastes 5:2-6; Numbers 30:2; Deuteronomy 23:21-23).
Many are asking, "Why are people so bad about being interested in church?" Only God and the person can answer that question. But I do know that a lot of people are looking for the wrong things when it comes to church attendance.
People should come to church because they are tired of a life of sin and want to seek truth with an interest in serving God faithfully until their death (John 6:45; Revelation 2:10; 2 Timothy 4:6-8). A person must have a love for his soul in order to faithfully go to church, for heaven isn't for everyone because most aren't willing to live right(Matthew 7:13-27). Too many come to church seeking money, food, etc. Some even come to check out a man or woman, with no interest in learning and applying truth to their lives. Others come for social events, weddings, or holiday services and beyond that you never see them. People aren't really looking for truth, they are looking for too many other things that can't help them as far as their soul is concern. Hope this article will encourage you to look for the truth (John 17:17; Matt. 5:6).
Let us hear from you or see you at the services.
Accepting the death of a loved one is never easy because of the emptiness and shock it gives us. But we shouldn’t be mad at the Lord because he has told us that we will die some day (James 4:15-16; Hebrews 9:27; Ecclesiastes 3:2, 19, 22). Also let’s not forget, we live in a temporal world with man also being temporary, for he is but dust (Genesis 3:19). So people must go on with life because the world continues, and if you don’t try to go on, you also will be dead (Eccl. 1:3-4).
That’s why it's so great to be a Christian. Having God in your life so he can take care of all your problems. Yes, you cannot make it in life without the Lord, because if we fail to serve him now what answer will we give him on Judgment Day? And if we don't believe in him, how can we have any hope after death? The best thing is to serve the Lord and have peace, for its the only way to be safe.
