William Gurnall writes this in the entry for July 19 entitled Do Not Neglect Worship:
Maybe you do not receive as much enlightenment as you want when you seek God in public services. Let me ask you this–what kind of communion do you have with Him in secret. Here is a hole wide enough to lose everything you get in public, if you do not repair it.
Seek God’s goals. God has two purposes in worship. First, He intends for us to honor Him as sovereign Lord. And second, worship is the way He communicates His presence and blessings to His children.
And so I pray:
Dear Father in Heaven, make us fervent seekers of Jesus in private and public. Let there be honor, presence and blessing in our corporate worship this day. In Jesus name, Amen.
“fervent seekers” – the essence of our faith, day in, day out!
