You know the ending of each of these stories.

How the people came and there was God.

Miraculous occurrences happened, each need in all there complications were met.

Mark 3:1, “And He entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.”

Luke 2:25-26,  “And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.”

Luke 5:17-18, “And it came to pass on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and Doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and present to heal them. And behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with palsy:”

Acts 2:1-4, “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing wind, and if filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

Do you feel some services aren’t as important as others? 

Do you pick and choose which to attend and which to skip? Has Sunday school become optional?

Gathering in service for worship and praise with the saints of God is more than just a gathering. The Spirit is there for whatever we need – healing, assurances, comforting, direction, guiding, a witness and instruction. But you have to be there, in a place, in your place.
