Assembly of the Saints

Written by: John Sernaque

Call to Worship


Hebrew 10: 25

10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.


Seeking the Assembly of the Saints—

Those who do not feel the necessity of seeking the assembly of the saints, with the precious assurance that the Lord will meet with them, show how lightly they value the help that God has provided for them. Satan is constantly at work to wound and poison the soul; in order to withstand his efforts we must breathe the atmosphere of heaven. We must individually get hold and keep hold of Christ (Manuscript 16, 1890). {7BC 934.2}


Some people wonder if it is necessary to go to church to worship and commune with God. It is true that God’s presence is everywhere. However, God has called us to congregate with one another in worship to Him. The church is the body of Christ, we are the members of the body, and where two or more gather in His name, He is in the midst. There is strength in numbers, and in the multitude of counsellors, there is safety. We are to value the help that God has provided and not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some.


Our kind and gracious Father,

We come into Your presence as a congregation to worship You in Spirit and in Truth. You have told us that where two or three are gathered together in Your name, You are in the midst. We thank You for giving us the privilege of assembling as Your people to commune with You, and for the assurance that You will be with us. We are in need and in total dependence of You to fight off Satan, his demons, and all the people that he works through. We pray to be continually in Your presence that we abide in You and You in us. We thank and praise You, in the name of Christ Jesus, we pray. Amen.
