2 Chronicles 31:21
21 “And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, in the law and in the commandment, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart. So he prospered.“
Today’s Inspiration: Whoever listens to the Lord will dwell safely and will be secure without fear of evil. Proverbs 1:33. What an assurance from the Lord. Why is the Bible written in biographic form? We are not to read it that God is merciful but rather we see His mercy displayed in the lives of His people. We do not just understand that God is able to save the most wretched of men but we have a living example in Paul. Why did God place us in the Body of Christ?
Worship quickens our conscience to the Holiness of God. Worship feeds the mind with the truth of God. Worship purge us of our sins and wash us till we are white as snow. Isaiah 1:18. Worship opens us to the love of God. Worship directs us to the will and purpose of God.
In this circuit breaker era if you don’t desire to join in corporate worship on site, and absent yourself from corporate worship, your faith is questionable. A compromised Christian by not taking serious consideration of corporate worship nor fellowship, you have cut yourself from the bonds of the family of Christ.
In order to have a meaningful body life, we need to join to the body to partake of the Lord’s table with those of the same faith and commitment to God. If you constantly stay away from corporate worship, you stay away from the Lord and deny yourself the privilege and disobeyed the commandment of the Lord. Luke 22:19 writes that the body was given to you to partake at the Lord’s table in remembrance of Him who died on the cross for you taking away all your sins, to give you freedom. In corporate worship we encourage and edify one another and share our joy and blessings. In a fellowship there is cleansing. God be praised.
Prayer: Lord grant me the zeal always to enjoy the benefits of worship You have provided for us at the local church. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
