Home church started in the very first home when God met with Adam and Eve in their Eden home in the cool of the evening. They met together and our first parents enjoyed fellowship and instruction from the Creator. The apostolic church first assembled in the upper room. In fact the Greek word that is translated as 'church' in the Scriptures simply means assembly or gathering. It doesn't even imply a building. An assembly or gathering can happen anywhere. In Acts 16 they gathered for worship by the river.
What is the real purpose of church? Is it just a social place we go to or is it about something else altogether? What makes it meaningful? Or rather why is there so often something missing?
The presence of God - that is what church is meant to be about. The absence of the divine presence makes church a meaningless human ritual no matter how grand the building is or how large the crowd.
God must be worshipped in accordance to His guidelines. He is not fooled by sinful heart attitudes veiled by sanctimonious exteriors. We may view with some pity those who think they can move their god around at will. But why do we think that God is obliged to come to us on our terms? Can humans really ignore Scripture and expect to find nourishment for the soul? Amos 5:21-24
It is time to seek God with all our hearts, to pray on our knees and search His word without reference to human tradition. The journey may be lonely but don't be discouraged. God has promised that our searching will not be futile. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
