Ephesians 2:6-7 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: (7) That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
I believe when we attend worship services in our church we should be sitting in a Heavenly place. I have had a lot of people tell me that they can worship God as well on the lake or even on their front porch as they can in church. I kind of doubt that they can and I am certain that I can't.
There are too many distractions and the verse above indicates that we should sit with others in these Heavenly places. When we enter into the worship services we should shut out the world from our mind and concentrate on the Majesty of our Creator and the grace and ministry of Jesus Christ. Everything involved in the worship service should try to focus our attention on God.
To often we fail to concentrate on our Heavenly Father and we miss a great opportunity to sit with others in a Heavenly place.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
