Pursuing His Presence
The Bible encourages us to seek God’s presence:
“Now set your mind and heart to seek the Lord your God.” (1 Chronicles 22:19)
“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” (Colossians 3:1-2)
One of the best ways to do that is through worship and this is the purpose of these evenings – we come together to seek God’s manifest presence. Yes, the Lord is always near to us, but we don’t always experience His presence. During this evening we are delliberatlly choosing to direct our hearts towards Him.
