Consistency—we expect it from the newspaper boy, the weatherman, the local restaurant, our employer, and basically from anyone with whom we do business. Unfortunately inconsistency characterizes many saints and it consequently impacts their marriages and assemblies. In the assembly it is seen most evidently in sporadic attendance.

It is difficult to function as a body of believers when you never know what members will be in attendance. Imagine in our own bodies if various members functioned on an inconsistent basis.  We would have a medical crisis! So too in the spiritual realm! Consistent attendance is not only important for individual saints, but it is vital for the proper functioning of the local assembly. Are you consistent?  Can you be counted on? (Heb. 10:25)
