When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you." (John 20:19 NRSV)
Someone spotted this sign outside a church: SEVEN SPRINGS CHRISTIAN CHURCH SUNDAY REV. R. GLEN MILES HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO HELL? VISIT US WORSHIP 9:00 & 11:00 A.M.
I doubt that the person who put up that sign meant that visiting their church was like visiting Satan's domain.
Church isn't a bad place to be for most of us. In fact, some people actually like church. Art Greer, a writer and preacher, claims he knows why. "It's because," says Art, "it's the one place bad things can't happen to them for one hour in the week. The toilet doesn't get stopped up, the sink doesn't run over, the phone won't ring, and the school principal can't call to say, I've got your son or daughter here in the office.' No downers can happen in church. The only price you pay for that hour of bliss is the possibility of being bored by the preacher." And God forgive us boring preachers!
Make plans to be in church this Sunday!
Lord Jesus, through your resurrection you made Sunday a holy day. May I take time to be holy on your day. Amen.
