Optional Meetings

Optional Meetings

Q.   I’m amazed that so many people pay scant attention to meetings. They come to those they like and ignore others they feel are optional. Are there optional meetings?

A.   What does God’s Word say to you?

What does the Holy Spirit say to you?

What do your oversight brethren say about the matter?

If you really want me to elaborate, please ask again and I will. But answer my questions first.

Perhaps people make a choice about the level of their allegiance to Jesus. I wonder how they would react were He to grade the level of His care toward them. Acts 2:42 says it all; does your Christian living incorporate what it says? And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
