Preparing For Worship

Surely every Christian has heard the words of Hebrews 10:24-25 quoted several times as they have attended
services on the Lord’s Day. Just is case you might have forgotten, here it is: “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.” Actually, every Christian should
consider this day – the Lord’s Day – to be the most important day of their week. The idea of assembling with those of like
precious faith is one of the blessings offered in coming together. However, there is something about our being present on
the Lord’s Day that must never be forgotten. It is that we meet the Lord there also. “For where two or three are gathered
together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matt. 18:20). While most of us have known these verses for years,
have we considered that readiness in advance would help to make the day more meaningful and fulfilling? Consider the
following: Anticipation – preparedness -prayer – study – meditation – rest – proper mind set – longing – priorities – values –
last, but not least, a genuine love for God and His Son. The last question in this regard may well be the first priority.
