Quite often, when people are encouraged to put aside whatever is preventing them from attending services regularly, they will say: “Well, I really should be there, but I think God understands!”

God has gone on record in as saying, “Not forsaking the assembling….” He does not understand why some of His people willfully hold to habits of forsaking the assembly! God does understand that we need to meet to praise Him and study His Word. God understands that others need the encouragement of our presence, we are a family that He put together. He does understand group fellowship, the power of people meeting together for mutual strengthening.

But do we understand those things? Many times we do not-and that is why so many allow Satan to bring one little excuse after another into their lives until they are separated from our God and His assembly.
