How does worshiping with our church family effect our continual daily spiritual worship to God?

God created us so that we need each other for love and support. When we get together with God’s people, the church is visibly itself. We share with each other, love and fellowship each other, build each other up in the Lord, pray for each other, and hear the word of God that helps us grow spiritually. It is “together with all the saints” that we learn about how great and awesome God’s love really is (Ephesians 3:18). We encourage each other in our meetings together (Hebrews 10:25). When we are together, we “admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, and be patient with them all” (1 Thessalonians 5:14). In the assembly, we give and receive the blessings of Jesus. We share and experience love and fellowship. We are strengthened to “press on,” not lose heart, and “not be weary in well doing” (Philippians 3:12-16; Galatians 6:6). The assembly “builds us up” (edifies, strengthens, encourages, teaches us) in the Lord. As we leave the assembly to live our lives in the world, we are better equipped to serve Jesus in our in our private lives and in our marriages, families and work. What we heard and learned in the assembly helps us live our lives for God.
