Re:Verse passage – 2 Chronicles 5:1-14 (day five).
“All the men of Israel assembled themselves to the king at the feast, that is in the seventh month. Then all the elders of Israel came, and the Levites took up the ark.”
Can you sense the unity? Can you sense the community? Can you picture the full participation of the leaders and people gathering for this time of worship and celebration? There is something tangible and overwhelming about being with God’s people. God’s presence. I am reminded of this truth most Sunday’s these days. At least one family or member will make their way back in person to worship or Bible study for the first time in a long while (some over a year). I love just watching and listening to them react after worship. Excited. Inspired. Emotional. Encouraged.
When it’s time (God will guide each of us in His timing) to gather in person, will you come with joy and expectation? We are praying our gathered times will be marked by His overwhelming presence and a real sense of unity and community.
