Some people do not understand the importance of corporate worship. It is a given that we should have personal, private worship time with God. But that in no way replaces the corporate worship experience. When God’s children from all backgrounds, ethnicities and experiences, come together under the banner of Christ to sing songs of praise and worship, it ignites something that cannot be achieved in personal worship time.
When all our voices rise together in unity to declare God’s goodness and His faithfulness, it welcomes the presence of God. When we can overcome all the things that could divide us and we allow God’s love to unite us, it sets an atmosphere for God to do something supernatural in our midst.
This is why God admonishes us in Hebrews 10:25, “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near.” There is something we need in corporate worship.
Make a commitment to be in worship regularly so that you can experience God’s presence in a greater way.
