Church while on Vacation

When you’re on vacation finding a church that believes and teaches the bible like your home church can be a daunting task.  While some folks like to attend a new church and meet new people,  many folks take their religion very personally and have a hard time going to a new church.  So what’s a body to do?

Did you know that the bible says “where ever two or three gathers in my name, there I am with them”?  The words of Jesus!  You can easily have a “home” church while on vacation!  It is easily done and much preferable to skipping!  Here is all you need to do:

1.  Confess your sins asking God to forgive them.

2. Pray.

3. Sing a few favorite hymns.

4. Read the Scriptures.

5. You can also do what you’d normally do.  You may wish to recite a creed,  a confession of faith or repeat a blessing!

6. A good way to finish is to say the Lords Prayer.

And there you have it!  You can even use this as a good training experience for children as a way of showing them that God is everywhere and can be worshiped in places other than the four walls of a church.  As is often the case,  when it’s useful for teaching children,  it is also a great reminder for us adults!  So if the devil is tempting you miss church while on vacation do not be afraid to have a church service where ever you find yourself to be!  And remember,  you are not alone!

My prayer for you is that you have safe and blessed travels.  And that the Lord keep your heart and mind in Christ Jesus!  Amen, and God Bless!
