READ: Colossians 1:21-28
“If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard,…” – Colossians 1:23
A patient with an irregularly irregular heartbeat is suffering from what is called atrial fibrillation and experiences symptoms like fainting and palpitations. To prevent death, such people’s hearts need to be stabilized.
Unfortunately, there are many Christians who have this problem of being irregular in their spiritual walk. This irregularity is either regular or irregular.
Their church attendance may be regularly (constantly) irregular. For instance they constantly come to church once or twice a month.
For some, church attendance may be irregularly irregular. For such people their church attendance may be totally unpredictable throughout the year. The pastor cannot predict when next they will be in church. Can you imagine what it would be like if you didn’t know when next your heart would beat?
Television and radio sermons cannot substitute regular fellowship. You must have a specific church, which you attend regularly.
Observe the irregular Christians. You will notice how they tend to backslide. But the regular feeding of your spirit will keep you from backsliding.
