A Weekly Devotional
from Steve Higginbotham
by Steve Higginbotham

tells the story of two preachers who were visiting over a cup of coffee.
The first preacher said to the second, “I cancelled our Sunday night
services about five months ago.” “You did?” the second preacher replied,
“What do your church members think?” The first preacher said, “I suspect
they’ll be pretty upset if they ever find out about it.”
in the two is the difference between “form” and “function.” If one views
church services simply as a “form” that must be checked off our “to-do
list,” he will see that assembly differently than the one who acknowledges
the “function” and purpose of the assembly.
