THE MYSTERY OF CHURCH
1 Chronicles 6:31
Now these are the men whom David appointed over the service of song in the house of the Lord, after the ark came to rest.
THE MINISTRY OF SONG
Worship is everything when we gather together.
Worship prepares us to receive the word of the Lord.
Worship is leaning in to engage the presence of God.
When we worship we engage in ministering to the Lord.
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD
The House of the Lord must be central to our lives.
The House of the Lord – is the place of His presence.
If you love His presence – you love His people – you love His place.
APPOINTED TO SERVE
To be in church means – you are set in place in the Body of Christ.
Church can never be attended – it is always a function.
No spectators here.
We serve to help others experience His presence.
Church attendance without a serving function – is dead religion.
THE ARK WAS AT REST
I love the thought of the presence of God being at rest in our midst.
When God’s presence settles upon us – profound things happen.
Never be in a hurry – wait for the Presence to settle upon you – like the dew of Heaven.
IN HIS PRESENCE – IS FULNESS OF JOY.
