Assembling to Worship

Assembling to Worship

    There is nothing that the church does that is more important than assembling to worship Christ. To gather in order to honor Christ through praying, preaching, and hearing the Gospel is such an important thing that each of us should approach it very seriously.  Let each one prepare himself in heart and body so as to arrive on time, having the heart clothed with a desire to hear from Christ and the body dressed modestly so as not to attract attention to one’s self.  Let each of us enter into every song and prayer, closing out the thoughts of the world and all the cares it loads on us.  Let each of us listen to the Word of God with the intensity of baby birds chirping for food.  In short, let each of us give himself to worship in this hour as though there were nothing better or more important in all the world to do – because there isn’t.
