Hebrews 12:22-24 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Two and a half years ago, shortly after we moved to Israel, our little daughter was born. Little did we or the doctors realize that she was born blind with a rare eye condition. With much prayer and fasting, we've seen the Lord do miracles and she is a seeing, thriving and very bright toddler today!
However, one of the remarkable things that came out of this event in our lives was that my wife and I began a nighly praise and worship service in our home. Although originally we'd hoped it would gather more of a crowd most nights, it's often just us.
I recently heard about the pastor of a small church, who was dismayed when only two people stayed for the communion service. As he read from the liturgy, he came to the words: "Therefore, with angels and archangels and all the company of heaven, we worship and adore Thy glorious name." That sentence changed everything for him. In his heart he said, "God forgive me. I did not know I was in that great company."
It's true — we are in GREAT company! When we worship the Lord, no matter how small a number we think we are, we worship along with all the hosts of heaven!
