We are finishing up our “Sunday Funday” series. It’s been about having fun, and building community – but I also about the importance of why we do this. Why do we gather together on Sundays? What’s the big deal?

  • We want to grow as a people who value coming together, who prioritize coming together, and who prepare our hearts to come together. 
  • We have talked about why it’s important to gather, the heart attitude we need to carry, and some enemies we are going to face. This week I want to spend some more time focusing on the third point from last week.

Hebrews 10:25 (TPT) – 25 This is not the time to pull away and neglect meeting together, as some have formed the habit of doing, because we need each other! In fact, we should come together even more frequently, eager to encourage and urge each other onward as we anticipate that day dawning.

  • The scriptures are clear that we should be coming together frequently to encourage and urge each other onward – as we anticipate that day dawning

When the Bible refers to “that Day” it is referring to the day of Judgement

The Bible tells us of two judgements seats:

1] The Great White Throne of Judgement

  • Revelation 20:11-15 (ESV) – 11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done…
  • This is where we are judged for our sins. All whose names are found in the book of Life will be saved. All who’s names are not will be cast into the Lake of Fire.

2] The Judgement Seat of Christ

  • 2 Cor 5:10 (ESV) – 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.
  • This is a judgement seat for believers where we will be judged based on our obedience to the Lord and our service of him.
  • The Great White Throne judgement will determine where people will spend eternity.
  • The Judgement Seat of Christ will determine how we spend eternity.

It’s very easy for us to lose sight of eternity and to just live ourselves and for today.

The Rope Illustration (Francis Chan):

  • We need to gather because we need to urge and encourage one another to live in light of eternity!
  • If we are concerned about people’s eternal destiny our value, priority and heart prep on gathering will be high!
  • If we are concerned about standing before Jesus and giving our account for our lives our value, priority and heart prep on gathering will be high!

“There is no such thing as a perfect church. Stop looking for it because it does not exist. Instead, commit yourself to an imperfect one and give you best to make it better, stronger and healthier. You may just grow a little bit in the process” – Sean Feucht

  • The starting point for committing to an “imperfect church” is to show up… and keep showing up and to give our best to help make it better, stronger, and healthier.
