Awake, O Christian - - - and Fellowship With the Saints!

AWAKE, O Christian, and rejoice in the God of glory and of salvation; who has called you to Himself; adopting you as His own child by the means of the death and resurrection of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ; and, who as His child, has been granted the high privilege of fellowship among the company of the redeemed, who gather this day for the purpose of praising, exalting and worshiping our Redeemer.  

Let us aim to rejoice together with great joy; to grow in His grace and knowledge; and to be a light of hope to both the church and to lost. Let us not betray the delightful duty of our calling; the gathering of the saints to the glory of God through any apathy, complacency, neglect or tardiness.  As the psalmist declared, "This is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it" (Psalm 118:24).
