If you decide to venture down to the building that houses our church people, then I want you to be prepared. The enemy, your enemy has set up all kinds of diversions, traps and snares and distractions...put on the full armour and do this...
"Be still, and know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation.
I will be honored throughout the world."
The Lord of Heaven's Armies is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress.
Leave all your opinions, politics, theories, preferences, and impatience at home.
IF YOU CAN'T CREATE A SANCTUARY (SAFE PLACE), it is ok to stay home and watch online. I say this lovingly.
We need sanctuary. So make your own list of conversation starters and engage your family of God with edifying conversation. It is the honoring thing to do.
The word honor jumps out to me. In order to honor God, create a safe place, and be His people, ask how your friends how they are being greeted these days and honor them. Rolling your eyes or ignoring their request is the opposite of honor and will cause some to stay at home next time. Be honoring.
