Means. Members of a church must desire and seek to attend all the appointed public means of grace as far as possible. As the church does not belong to the leaders but to Christ, members must see the means as appointed by the providence of Christ for their spiritual good. Moreover the under-shepherds by Christ would in most cases have a plan of instruction for building up the church. Members who pick and choose what to attend and what not to attend are scorning the good intention of their leaders while at the same time possibly setting themselves up for an imbalanced diet.
