THE GLORY OF GOD
Like all Americans I remember the planes striking the Twin Towers on 9/11/2001. I watched in terror as the buildings tumbled to the ground. I watched the newscasts on every channel on TV. I heard all the personal stories. I heard about all the people who were killed. It was a time all of us will remember. It was a wake up call for all Americans. It happened on Tuesday. I was at work and everyone gathered around the TV in our Break Room. Everyone left their desks and we all watched together. Some were angry. A few cried. The following Sunday was very dramatic. The Church was full. It was very quiet. Everyone had a somber look. It was a time I will never forget. The Pastor had a moving message. The Choir had a Patriotic song. It was a moving experience for young and old alike. There have been many memorable services in the history of the church. The dedication of Solomon's temple was a memorable service. It took sever years and six months to complete the building. The people were anxious to worship God in His House. The Ark was put in it's place. There was a great orchestra and choir to lead the people in praising God. The Lord filled the temple with the cloud of glory which represented His presence.
We should have that same experience today. We need to claim His presence each time we assemble with fellow Christians. Matthew 18:20 - For where two or three gather in My name, there am I with them. When you go into Church this Sunday morning look for Him to be there with you. Feel His presence. Praise His name. Feel the glory of God.
