With Him and with Each Other

Every Christ-centred gathering is an expression of our union with Him and with each other before God’s heavenly throne. The vertical dimension (God’s engaging with us) is primary. Uniquely among human assemblies we are gathered by God to Himself, and He is powerfully present among us by His Spirit (I Cor. 3:16-17; 2 Cor. 6:16; Eph. 2:22). . . . We meet with God in the presence of one another and meet with one another in the presence of God.

—David G. Peterson, Encountering God Together, 19
