Celebrating the Word of God
We need to remember that the grace that unites us to the Lord unites us to all who have been made members of his body. Above all, we must prize the blessing of corporate worship. The church of the Lord, gathered for worship, marks the pinnacle of our fellowship with the Lord and with one another. . . . In corporate worship we experience the meaning of union with Christ. We worship most fully when we together hear his words to us and encourage one another to grow in grace and in witness to the world.
