God's Fire

It is a great blessing to be here in the presence of God, the Father, with the gathered saints, each Lord’s Day. As we think about King Saul’s good start defending God’s people, we are also reminded that he strayed away from God and ended up fighting God’s anointed.
This ought to cause us to take seriously what we do here every week so that we do not drift away from God. Every week, we renew covenant with God. We confess our sins and receive forgiveness. We wait upon God’s prophetic voice through the reading, singing and preaching of the Scriptures. We come before the throne of God when summoned and are seated at His Banqueting Table as friends of God Most High.
If we really do take this seriously, honestly worshipping God through the grace of Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit, then God’s fire is constantly kindled in us. Our zeal for the Lord and the Lord’s House, His people, is lit anew each week such that it will never be extinguished. Thus, we have the peace and assurance of knowing that God is with us and we are with God.
