Sunday, September 2

They continued devoting themselves . . . to associating together.—Acts 2:42.


The Greek word translated “devoting themselves” implies enduring or persevering in a course with intense effort. Under Roman rule and faced with opposition by the Jewish religious leaders, those early Christians did not find it easy to attend meetings. Nevertheless, they persevered. Many modern-day servants of Jehovah have shown deep appreciation for Christian meetings. George Gangas, who served on the Governing Body for over 22 years, stated: “To me, meeting with the brothers is one of life’s greatest pleasures and a source of encouragement.” He added: “My innermost thought and desire is to attend the meetings.” Do you feel the same way about gathering together to worship Jehovah? Then be determined to endure and persevere in your earnest efforts to attend meetings regularly. You will thus show that you agree with King David, who said: “Jehovah, I love the house where you dwell.”—Ps. 26:8. w16.04 3:16-18

I struggle with "going" to meetings because I have trouble with being around a lot of people and the noise when everyone is visiting one another, but my heart wants and needs to be there, therefore I make the effort and seldom miss a meeting. It's a constant war in my head, and I can't let it win!
