So, yesterday was about how Easter is in the top ten peak travel days of the year. Here is another interesting fact: Easter rivals Christmas for the number one peak church attendance day of the year. (Interestingly enough, Mother’s Day is the third.) A popular euphemism of the 90s in church culture was the saying, “Don’t be a Sunday Christian.” On a related note, you’ve probably seen the meme floating around social media sites that says, “Standing in a church does not make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.” Both of these statements hold great truths about what it means to live out the life of sanctification.

There is a reason the words disciple and discipline look so similar. Corporate fellowship, prayer, praise, learning, supporting, working, and growing is essential and must be a regular part of your life. Hebrews 10:24-25 ummarizes this best: “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not iving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as ou see the Day approaching.”  The Day of Reckoning is approaching. Be disciplined in your faith. Be consistent. he reward will be great.
