Because we gather Sunday after Sunday, Sunday mornings can become routine. I was blessed by how John Newton described and what happens at church on Sunday in a letter to a friend. He writes,
“You must not expect a long letter this morning; we are just going to court, in hopes of seeing the King, for He has promised to meet us. We can say he is mindful of his promise; and yet it is not strange that though we are all in the same place, and the King in the midst of us, it is but here and there one (even of those who love him) can see him at once! However, in our turns we are all favoured with a glimpse of him, and have had cause to say, How great is his goodness! How great is his beauty! We have the advantage of the Queen of Sheba, a more glorious object to behold, and not so far to go for the sight of it. If a transient glance exceeds all that the world can afford for a long continuance, what must it be to dwell with Him! If a day in His courts be better than a thousand, what will eternity be in His presence!” 
May the Lord fill our hearts with anticipation and awe as we gather to worship King Jesus!
