Not abandoning our own assembling together, as the custom with some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more as you see the day drawing near. -Heb 10:25
A life that flocks together
Hebrews 10:25 exhorts us to not abandon the assembling of ourselves together. Because our Christian life is like the sheep’s life, requiring that we flock together and live a meeting life. In a very real practical sense, on the one hand, we meet together at our meeting hall on Sunday; on the other hand, we meet from house to house on other days (Acts 2:46And day by day, continuing steadfastly with one accord in the temple and breaking bread from house to house, they partook of their food with exultation and simplicity of heart,), that is, we gather together continually in homes.
Meeting one another’s need
The gatherings in smaller groups in homes are very helpful for our mutual cherishing and nourishing. As believers in Christ, we need to be cherished with Christ’s tender love and care outwardly that we may have soothing, comfortable rest inwardly; and be nourished by being fed with the living word of Christ to receive grace and life supply for our daily needs. We have found that the best way to experience Christ’s practical cherishing and nourishing is through Bible study and fellowship with one another in a small group setting. When we gather together, we sing, pray, and read the Recovery Version Bible with footnotes and fellowship. These gatherings are full of mutuality, and each person is free to participate and share his or her daily experience and enjoyment of Christ to supply others, or his or her burdens, questions, and problems so that we can pray for each other and experience the supply of the Body in a very practical way.
Home meeting content
In our home meetings, we emphasize very much the enjoyment of Christ as life in the Spirit through the Word for our daily living, so we not only study together the interpreted Bible, the Recovery Version Bible with footnotes, but also read and fellowship the Life-study of the Old and New Testament by Witness Lee. We receive from these Life Study messages tremendous light to understand the Bible and life to enrich our daily living. Each time after the meeting, we were full and rejoicing in our hearts, praising the Lord!
Meeting in your home
We have had children, international college students, married couples, families, friends, and neighbors attend our meetings. Occasionally we invite gospel friends to our home for meals and share with them Christ as our life. If you would like to join us in one of our home meetings, or if you would like to invite a few of us to visit you in your home, please contact us.
