Psalm 42:1–2 “As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?”

Psalm 84:1–2 “How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD of hosts! My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.”

In Psalm 42, the psalmist describes being banned from gathering with the saints for some unknown reason and he pours out his heart for return to the Lord at Zion with his people. To the Jewish mind, to watch worship from afar and not be able to come, would have been isolating, agonizing, and depressing! He longed to be in the courts of God.

To minimize your longings for the courts of God and to keep seeing Christ fully formed in you (Galatians 4:19) we are providing you with video teachings from our sermon series in 2 Corinthians: God of Weakness. Exceptional moments like this do require exceptional (and temporary) actions.

This unique season will give us something to earnestly pray about, namely, the freedom and desire to return as a real people, in body and soul, to the worship of God - together. That longing is healthy and beneficial for the saints, promoting the creation of what Jesus designated as true worshipers of God who worship in spirit and in truth.

I sincerely hope that during our time apart from one another that God would stir in you a longing to be back with God’s people.

With much love and affection,
