Oh, magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together. – Psalm 34.3
I think it is pretty obvious that God never intended for His people to worship Him all by themselves. Everything we read, from the very beginning, is that we are to do things together. God even said at the very beginning that it isn’t good for man to be alone.
That was true in regard to Adam, but it is also true for all of us. In the Old Testament God chose His people as a group to serve Him.
In the New Testament God gave us the church. One of the many reasons we come together is to magnify the Lord and exalt His name together. We are challenged in the book of Hebrews to not forsake assembling together so that in our joint praise and glorifying on God we can be encouraged.
It can seem like we are standing all alone in this world. It can seem like we might as well give up. Buy when we come together to magnify God and exalt His name we find great unity and sense of purpose and it can give us the boost we need to go back out into the world to serve our Saviour.
Let us exalt His name – together.
