The regular worship of God is a source of joy and happiness for God’s saints. Psalm 95:1-2 says, “O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.” Psalm 122:1 adds, “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.”
Jesus said in John 4:24, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” So many religious groups have no regard for the authority of Christ when the worship. They offer anything they wish, such as instrumental music, and expect God to accept it. They furthermore take away from the Bible pattern of worship, such as partaking of the Lord’s Supper every first day of the week, and expect God to accept this worship.
But when one worships in truth, they must adhere to the authority of Christ. There is a great spiritual strength to be found in regular worship. Hebrews 10:24-25 says, “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” God intended for His saints to meet together every Sunday (Acts 20:7). No Christian can survive and please God alone. Regular worship is not only commanded, but it also anchors a Christian’s week and gives them strength for living.
