The Church Pandemic

February 21, 2021 Pastor: Michael Foster

Scripture: Psalm 100:1–5

"Pastor James Coates has been arrested in Canada for holding public worship services. They will only release him on the condition he won’t preach publicly. He refuses to comply.
So must we.
The greatest pandemic in America isn’t COVID-19.
It’s the lack of church attendance.
Now why should we give thanks to Him, bless His name publicly?
v. 5 For the Lord is good;
His lovingkindness is everlasting
And His faithfulness to all generations.
Where else can you be with a room full of people that know how awesome our God is?
Every week we come together to reflect on the wonderful attributes of God.
He is loving, merciful, true, holy…
He is good and we will be recipients of that goodness for ever and ever!
He is a Being of unchangeable benevolence, mercy, and truth. Such a God is worthy to be held in universal reverence; such a God is worthy of universal praise.
A day is coming when we all will praise Him together.
The persecuted Christians from the Roman era...
The persecuted Christians from China...
The persecuted Christians from Canada...
The faithful believers of every age will be united in one voice and will shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth!
So, Christian, you have no excuse for cold worship. Repent. Enjoy God. Taste the heavenly goodness now…"
