Three truths about Gathering (also known as fellowship and worship):
1. We were wired for fellowship and worship.
Revelation 4:11; “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
This is God’s plan from the beginning till the end of time.
Revelation 7:9; After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.
2. God’s will is for us to gather together.
Hebrews 10:24–25 - And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Stop making excuses! If the devil can’t make you bad, he’ll make you busy!
3. Fellowship and Worship are action verbs.
Romans 12:1 - Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
Colossians 3:23 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as if you were working for the Lord and not for a person.”
Romans 12:1 in the Message, “… Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering (an act of worship).”
Take from your “gatherings” and be involved in your church and community. Amen?
