The solemn assembly was a special day set apart from the normal activities of worship and celebration. It was a day of dedication and sacrifice. The solemn assembly was a day on which vows were made to God and repentance was expressed by God’s people. It was a day in which restoration and renewal was called for within the congregation of the Lord. The solemn assembly was in short, a prelude to revival.
On April 14, I am calling our church to come together to observe a special solemn assembly emphasis that we will call “SPRING RENEWAL SUNDAY”.
The will be three worship assemblies that day:
9:45 am – Getting Right with God, Emphasis on Repentance
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
11:00 am – Coming Together in Christ, Emphasis on Reconciliation and Fellowship
“Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation…” (2 Corinthians 5:18)
6:30 pm – Be Renewed in Christlikeness, Emphasis on Spiritual Renewal and Holiness
“…be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.” (Ephesians 4:23b-24)
I have asked Tim Douglas, our good friend, son in the ministry and former missionary to return to our church to preach and lead this emphasis. There will be special emphases in each service that will bless the worship experience and prepare us all for what God wants to accomplish. Begin to pray now that God will have His way in our lives and will do a mighty work among us.
