Is our Sunday church attendance routine?
Don’t get me wrong, making Sunday church attendance part of your routine is tremendous and fundamental; however, does our “routine attendance” feel meaningful?
I’ve spent the last two days studying the Prophet’s opening message this past General Conference. It’s a quick nine-paragraph speech, but the message he delivers to us is impactful, influential, and carries much power.
As he spoke about pure truth, pure doctrine, and pure revelation, he also addressed that the conference would again be “unforgettable.”
How can every General Conference be “rewarding and unforgettable?”
Well, he teaches us how.
We need to seek for the ministering of the Holy Ghost to help us hear Him before conference sessions.
As I thought about it, I thought about my weekly Sunday attendance.
Do we seek for the ministering of the Holy Ghost to help us hear what the Lord would have us hear during our meetings?
Is that part of our weekly routine?
Do we focus on the Savior enough during the week and prepare ourselves to have “unforgettable Sundays” each week?
Or, is our focus on who is going to annoy us, who is going to offend us, who is going to “call in sick” and leave us hanging?
Whatever these reasons are, do we focus on those over “seeking for the ministering of the Holy Ghost to help us hear what the Lord would have us hear” each Sunday?
Do we feast on the messages our imperfect brothers and sisters tried their best to prepare?
Do we see our brothers and sisters each Sunday as the Lord’s servants?
We can all become too comfortable in Sunday routines. Brothers and sisters, let’s not become too comfortable in these routines to where they are just that, routines. Let’s make our routines meaningful so we can have weekly “rewarding and unforgettable” Sabbath day church attendance.
