Quiet Time-It's Not Just About Going to Church
The Lord says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men. Isaiah 29:13
We are here for one purpose, to serve God. That is not accomplished by showing up to church once a week, going through the usual steps and then heading off to brunch (not that this is a bad thing). What is really important is having a relationship with God, talking to Him, praying, being mindful of Him in all you do. We each have a special role He has given us, a purpose.
This is not saying that there is anything wrong with church or that it is a bad thing, it is just that God is found in other ways too and should be present all week, not just on Sunday.
