We assemble together because God has provided a place for salvation and learning. If you study the early days of the Lord’s Church you will see that they understood what it truly meant to give up of self and the value of assembling with the saints. Here are four reasons we should attend every assembly.
To show our love for the Lord. John 14:15: “If you love me, keep my commandments.”
To be edified. This means to be strengthened. Yes, from time to time the sermon steps on your feet and the feet of the preacher. When we meet together the scriptures must teach us to be a better servant.
To set a good example. You might be the strength someone else needs to keep the faith. When we became Children of God we entered a trial before the world. They are watching you and me.
We must assemble because the future generations need a strong, knowledgeable, and dedicated foundation to stand upon. We stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us and we are blessed. We have a great work for the future and eternity. Love God. Love the Church. Love your time with the saints.
