Ron Man at blog.worship.com has written a great post regarding how followers of Christ should approach our Sunday gatherings. I think this is a great reminder of why we get together on Sunday mornings. Here’s just a sample of the post:
Our worship is an obedient response to God’s invitation. We may invoke God to bless our worship and to make his presence known. But in a greater sense we cannot invite God to be present in our worship; He never left—we did! Rather it is God who invites us to worship. It is his Word which tells us to “Come, let us worship and bow down. . . .” God has revealed himself to us and has established a relationship with us by his power and grace. God delights in that relationship and desires (and deserves) our worship as a means of affirming and strengthening our relationship with him. “Worship the Lord with gladness,” says the psalmist, “come before Him with joyful songs” (Ps. 100:2). Coming to God is not an option for Christians but rather our obedient response to God’s gracious invitation.
