Question

Answer:

I am 64 years old and still working a full time job.  I also have some health issues that make it very hard for me to walk, so by the time I get home I stay home.  I don't feel like attending Wednesday night Bible class.  My daughter says that it's a sin that I don't go.  What do you think?


I think your actions loudly declare where your priorities lie. "Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works" (James 2:18). So how do you think God will look at this when you bow before Him at judgment? "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad" (II Corinthians 5:10).

"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15).

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching" (Hebrews 10:23-25).

"Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord" (Romans 12:10-11).

"And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength" (Mark 12:30).
