What happens when Christ-followers meet together?
Christ-followers are supposed to regularly meet together (see Hebrews 10:14), but what are they supposed to do when they meet? Many centuries of tradition say that they are suppose to passively sit back and watch one man do religious ceremonies and then give them a talk. However what does the New Testament say that they should do?
1) In Matthew 18:20, Jesus says: “Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them,” so believers are supposed to interact with the living, resurrected Jesus Christ (not ignore Him like He’s not in the room).
2) Romans 8:14 says: “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God,” so Christ-followers are supposed to listen to and obey the Spirit.
3) I Corinthians 14:26 says: “How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation,” so believers are supposed to actively participate in the meeting by sharing what God has put on their heart.
