A very prominent feature of most biblical solemn assemblies was the practice of remembering the special things God had done in behalf of His people. When our heart departs (Deuteronomy 30:17) from our first love for God, remembering God’s kindnesses can lead us to repentance (Romans 2:4) just as powerfully as godly sorrow over our sin (2 Corinthians 7:10). Jesus commanded the church at Ephesus to remember the height from which they had fallen and repent and return to their first love for Him. Let’s remember all His goodness toward us as we return to Him.
Over the course of the following days, I’ll be blogging 8 videos related to the topic of understanding and leading a solemn assembly. If you don’t want to wait for the blogs, you can view them in a video album at: http://vimeo.com/album/1495849
