Today is yet another wonderful day where God will hear from His people regarding our immense love for Him.  At least such is our claim.  And....such will be the case from millions of hearts from sea to shining sea.

Sometimes I find myself slipping from worshipping the invisible true God to personally enamoured with the physical about our assemblies; the sound to my ears, the smile upon the faces, and greeting the many friends now known as my brothers and sisters. 

This is why the Golden Calf dilemma is so subtle.  We are to assemble to build one another up.  To miss this call would be violation of a serious New Testament charge.  Subtlety is the issue. 

We must be on our toes to see that the Father is worshipped, that the Son is remembered, and the Holy Spirit is acknowledged as in our midst.  We cannot insult the Them by gathering primarily to get, to receive, or to obtain. 

Rather, we are gathering world wide to say to Them, We adore You and praise You and thank You and worship You!  We cannot take one step without You?  Thank You for all you have done and for all that You are going to do!

We do not gather today because we like our specific congregation first and foremost.  No.  Instead, we first assemble to send a loud and clear message to His throne room.....We are wild about You!  And Lord, it thrills our hearts to know this relationship began because You were wild about us first!

This post was right in line with our sermon on Sunday. Great thoughts! By the way, I'm also one of those who doesn't comment very often, but I read your blog every day. :)
