“I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go the house of the LORD.’ ” (Ps 122:1)
David didn’t always have the privilege of worshipping God openly. He spent many years of his life as a Jewish exile – cast out of his homeland and away from the tabernacle of worship. David knew how special it was to be able to worship God freely and to enjoy the blessings of shared fellowship of the faithful.
The freedoms many of us enjoy to serve God openly are not guaranteed. Other parts of the world and other eras of history show us that Christians often have had to serve God while risking their lives to do so.
So, don’t waste the gift. Be glad that you live in such a privileged time and make the most of the opportunity. What a blessed generation we are!
And day by day, continuing stedfastly with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread at home, they took their food with gladness and singleness of heart, praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to them day by day those that were saved. (Acts 2:46-47)
