Introduction
  • It was a practice of David to assemble with Jonathan and his family
  • When David would no longer assemble with Jonathan, it caused him to be missed
  • Jonathan loved David and could not imagine having his seat empty when his family came together on this important day for the New Moon
slide4
Introduction
  • It should be a practice of every Christian to assemble with the saints when the assembly is called together
  • When a brother or sister no longer attends services, they are missed
  • When you love your brothers and sisters in Christ, you will be concerned when their seat is empty and you will miss them
slide5
Introduction
  • Two questions that we must answer are:

>Why will your seat be empty?

>Why will you be missed?

- Let us answer these questions by looking to the NT teachings regarding our responsibility in assembling with one another

slide6
Why Will Your Seat Be Empty?
  • “I am sick and / or unable to attend”

> Phil. 2:25-30; II Tim. 4:20

-“I am traveling away, attending elsewhere”

>Acts 20:1-7

-“I am busy and will be doing other things”

> Lk.8:11-15; Gal.1:6-12; Ac. 24:25

-“I no longer want to serve the Lord”

> Philemon 1:20-24; II Tim. 4:7-10

slide7
Why Will You Be Missed?
  • “You are loved by the congregation”

> I Cor. 16:24; Phil. 1:8; II Cor. 2:4

-“You are a source of encouragement”

>Heb. 10:24-25; I Thess. 2:14-3:3

-“You could not participate in worship”

> Ac. 20:7; I Cor. 16:1-2; Col. 3:16

-“You make people concerned for you”

> Ps. 122:1; Acts 2:41-47

Application
  • Not only are there many reason why your seat may be empty and you will be missed, but there are certainly things that you will miss as well

-Attendance to the services of the church are of great importance and must not be forsaken (Heb. 10:25) “The manner of some” is not the example for all.
