The Church of our Lord Jesus Christ is gathering in cities, villages, fields and even underground around the world to worship our Triune God. We join this incredible movement of men, women, and children who set aside specific times for worship and fellowship in the name of the Risen Christ. Setting out from our homes, we assemble for instruction from the Word of God and a dialogue with our Heavenly Father who blesses us and guards us each day.
Tomorrow our hearts will be fed through the Word of God and we will especially focus on the Apostle's instructions to us in Colossians 1:24-2:15. As Paul explains, "I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments". Likewise, in 1 Corinthians 1 he explains,
"Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart." Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe. For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men."
Come and worship!
