Only One Thing Really Matters

By Don Loftis | 07.03.13

The church represents those who have been “called out” of the world by responding to the great and gracious invitation of Jesus.  The church is also identified as those “called together” to worship the Lord.  The wisdom of the assembly is evident every week, as we experience a gathering place to approach God.

The assembly serves as a “melting pot” for Christians from all backgrounds to share a common focus on the cross.  It does not matter what kind of car we came in, or what our outfit cost, or how many children we have, or how much money is in our IRA.  Age, political leaning, sports affiliation, job status, and mailing address have little impact on this unique fellowship.

As we sit together in chairs or pews; inside or out, all that matters is our relationship with the Lord.  Are we His adopted children?  Are we obedient or rebellious?  Do we honor Him or embarrass Him?  Is that relationship growing closer or more distant?

A man was invited by a friend to attend a worship service to be held in a chapel located inside a very exclusive housing development.  While driving there, he realized that his personal net worth wouldn’t buy a vacant lot in this fancy community.  Yet, as they worshipped, the group recited a chorus at the end of one of their songs that said, “Like the woman at the well I was seeking for things that could not satisfy.”  It is our desperate need for God that draws us together at the Lord’s Table every week, and it is His blessing that meets that need completely.
