The writer of Hebrews encourages us to gather together with these words,
â€œAnd let us consider and give attentive, continuous care to watching over one another, studying how we may stir up (stimulate and incite) to love and helpful deeds and noble activities; Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together (as believers), as is the habit of some people, but admonishing â€“ warning, urging and encouraging â€“ one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching.â€ Amplified Bible, chapter 10:24-25. Where the verb assemble is used, the original language implies â€œto make a complete collectionâ€; donâ€™t let there be any missing parts!
Jesus stated the principle truth â€œFor where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.â€ Matthew 18:20
Nine of 11 of Jesusâ€™ post-resurrection appearances are to various small gatherings of disciples (with exception of Mary Magdalene & Paul the Apostle).
When parts of the Body join together, we may expect Jesus to meet with us, reveal Himself, bring encouragement, open our understanding and foster life and empowerment to each one present. He will breathe on us and say â€œreceive the Holy Spiritâ€ as He did with the first disciples and the gifts of the Holy Spirit will operate naturally through our yieldedness to Him.
All this to glorify the Father!
