Discipleship #1

Regular worship and study of God’s Word:

Worship is a precious privilege and responsibility. In worship, God comes to us through his Word and through the body and blood of his Son in the Lord’s Supper. We respond by praising his Name, giving him thanks for what he has done, singing praises to him, and offering ourselves and our resources to him and his people. Thus, worship is a vertical relationship between God and you. But worship involves the horizontal dimension—between us and other Christians. Our praise and worship follow the examples of saints from all generations. By our presence at worship we encourage our fellow Christians to be faithful in this vital area.

Hebrews 10:24–25 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

John 8:47 [Jesus said:] “Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”

Luke 11:28 But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”
