WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN
Jerusalem, well-built city,
built as a place for worship!
The city to which the tribes ascend, all God’s tribes go up to worship,
To give thanks to the name of God—this is what it means to be Israel.
Thrones for righteous judgment
are set there, famous David-thrones.
SOMETIMES WE MUST RETURN TO BASICS
Every so often people come to a place where their faith in God and their function for God – don’t seem to add up.
It is then we must return to what it all means.
CHURCH SHOULD ALWAYS BE A PLACE TO WORSHIP
Churches should build great ministry centres – and run great programs. However, church must always be the place where we can worship and experience God’s presence.
WORSHIPPING GOD SHOULD BE THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR WEEK
The tribes ascend and go up to worship.
Do not reduce church to the easiest or lowest level.
It is much more than gathering for a coffee and chat.
LEARN TO GIVE THANKS IN EVERYTHING
Church is about teaching people to give thanks to the Lord for He is good. Worship always comes with thankfulness.
CHURCH IS A PLACE FOR RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT
The church must teach and set in place the commandments of the Lord.
People should come to church to get right before God.
Set in order the way of righteousness. Do it clearly.
FAMOUS DAVID THRONES
David lived to possess his inheritance and to establish the Kingdom of God.
Passing on the way of faith to new generations – is the heartbeat of church.
KEEP IT SIMPLE…
PASS IT ON
