The core reason to gather together
“It’s so enjoyable to come before you, with uncontainable praises spilling from our hearts. How we love to sing our praises over and over to you. To the matchless God, high and exalted over all! At each and every sunrise we will be thanking you for your kindness and your love. As the sun sets and all through the night, we will keep proclaiming, you are so faithful. Melodies of praise will fill the air as every musical instrument joined with every heart overflows with worship No wonder I’m so glad I can’t keep it in Lord I’m shouting with glee over all you have done” “Psalm 92 1-4 Passion translation
This psalm is titled A Sabbath morning song of praise and a little footnote says Ancient Jewish tradition holds that Adam composed this Psalm on the first Sabbath of creation and was sung by the Levites on the Sabbath at the temple.
What struck me is that this capitulates the very core of why we gather on Suns as Gods people. It’s to praise and worship our God. There are some other reasons – fellowship, hearing Gods word. They are important and have their place. But here is the very ancient core foundation and gives the why it’s so important to come together as Gods children once a week. Is this the heart attitude we have approaching Sun morning. I find this so powerful.
