Have you ever given consideration the purpose of corporate worship? What is the purpose of believers coming together and worshiping the Lord? If you have a special interest you probably know others who share that interest. Mine is digital photography. As a result, I belong to an organization that meets regularly to share knowledge and information about the subject. The purpose of these meetings is to become a better photographer and enjoy the fellowship of others who share my passion for photography.
Corporate worship for the believer serves some of the similar purposes. We spend all week in a world that has little use for our Savior. We encounter evil on a regular basis throughout our daily walk and we are tempted to engage in activities that are not pleasing to our Lord and are not beneficial to our own lives. Sunday morning brings us a new opportunity to come together as believers, sing praises to our Savior and share knowledge about what He as done in our lives. It is a refuge for our souls, a chance recharge our batteries, be encouraged and encourage other believers. We also learn of opportunities to share the love of Christ in our community. Every Sunday is an opportunity for a personal revival to occur. Lord, send a revival and let it begin in me.
