To bring together or come together for a common purpose or action
What nobler purpose is there than to reverence God?
To give Him the honor that is due Him?
To fear Him?
Ecclesiastes 12:13 tell us this truth,
To fear God and keep His commandments is the whole duty of man.
Our whole duty is wrapped up in these two actions.
It is understood that we are not speaking of being frightened by or of God,
but of a reverential awe.
He is our Father.
But He is also holy.
And we are to honor Him as such.
As He tells us to do, through the prophet Isaiah
He is not to be treated casually.
May we echo David’s prayer:
Teach me your way, Yahweh, and I will live by Your truth.
Give me an undivided heart to fear Your name.
Unite my heart to fear Your name.
Bring my heart together, its divided pieces, so that I may fear Your name.
That I may have reverential awe of You.
