Church: Burden or Blessing?
Radio Hostess: Renee Swope
Writer: Renee Swope

I don’t want to go to church, I’m too tired! Hi, I’m Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries. That sounds like something one of my kids would say, but those were MY thoughts last Sunday morning! After a long week at work with several meetings and a Saturday that had been filled with projects, I just wasn’t up for another meeting. But God reminded me that when people who love Him come together, it’s not just another meeting; it’s a meeting with HIM!

The Bible says that when two or more people are gathered together to seek God, His presence is experienced in a powerful way. And, worshiping God with those who know and love Him is a privilege. You know there are lots of people around the world who can’t meet like this without fearing for their lives. So if you’ve been struggling to get up for church like I was recently, try thinking of it as a chance to meet not just with other people, but with God!
