Great Sermon! This sermon is even more important now than when he preached it. "Do not forsake the assembling of yourselves together."
We claim to believe Psalm 91. We pretend we believe that God is protecting us from the arrows that fly, and from pestilence; and yet all it takes is for the devil to put a little fear of a virus out there, and everything stops. No communion, no church, no bible study. Such is OUR faith.
I look forward to the day that we will take a page from China's book, or North Korea's. They are gathering in groups in caves, in abandoned buildings, risking arrest, to assemble with the brethren, and receive the body and blood of Christ. Such is THEIR faith. Would that we had it here. We don't even believe God can save his people from being infected, let alone see the witnessing potential. Imagine what nonbelievers would think if they saw that our hope was in Christ; that it we were arrested, we trusted in the Holy Spirit to give us our words.
Unfortunately, this won't happen. We have sent a clear message that we can't count on God. We have indicated that worship is in the category with a trip to the movies; something to do on Sunday as long as nothing prohibits it.
Like Paul Washer says, It's all about Him. What have we said with our actions? That we see God as powerless
