BE JOYFUL ALWAYS IN THE CHURCH!
I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord” (Psalm 122:1).
The church is the house of the Lord. It is the congregation of people who have united together to worship the Lord in one accord. When you are in the church, God expects you to be joyful always because it is a great privilege for anyone to be in the house of God. The Bible says in the opening text that I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.” Of course, everyone should endeavor to take note of the fact that he is expected to be joyful always whenever he comes to the church which is the presence of God. Hence, a Christian should be joyful always in God’s presence forever.
Everyone is expected to conduct himself properly in the house of God in order to receive divine blessings. The church which is the house of God should be a place where the truth of the gospel is preached. That is why the Bible says in 1 Timothy 3:15, “But if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, the pillar and ground of the truth.” In fact, the church which is the house and presence of God should be a divine place where the truth of the gospel of salvation is preached with all fervency.
God does not expect us to forsake the gathering of His children. But rather, He wants us to be joyful always whenever we come together to worship Him. That is the reason why the Bible says in Hebrews 10:25, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” Therefore, every Christian should endeavor never to forsake for any reason the Assembly of God’s people which are the church and the presence of God. A Christian should learn to be joyful always in the presence of God which is the church.
Daily Tip: Everyone is expected to be joyful always in the church because he is in God’s presence. Shalom!
