Title: A fellowship of prayer
Bible verse: Psalm 95: 6–7
Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Today if you will hear His voice.
Message: The worship of God is a necessary expression of our faith.
- The tabernacle and the temple in Jerusalem were places of worship, where the presence of God could be felt.
- We can feel the presence of God in the divine services, and worship Him collectively there.
- Among other things, the fellowship of divine service is a fellowship of prayer and sacrament.
- Our worship of God incorporates concern for the salvation and the well-being of our neighbour, as well as the preservation of the creation.
