This message is for every Christian! When you’re not at worship, we miss you! When you’re not at Bible study, we miss you! When you’re not at your home congregation, we miss you!
Now, sometimes you’re traveling and hundreds of miles away when we meet for services. We wish you safe travels, and we miss you! Sometimes you’re way-too-ill to leave your house when we meet for services. We wish you well very soon, and we miss you! We don’t say, “We miss you,” as if we’re preaching a sermon about you not being here! We truly miss you!
Sometimes a Christian misses worship or a church assembly by choice. He/She is in town (not traveling) and is healthy (not sick) and has none of those common physical barriers that prevent his/her attendance. But, by choice (for a variety of possible reasons), he/she does not come. Guess what? You’re missed when you’re not here! We mean that! Truly and genuinely! It may be difficult to sense, when you’re here, how much we miss you when you’re not here!
