What Older Christians Want Younger Ones to Know
Day 7- Sunday Selah
Ruth P. McDonald

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” (Colossians 3:16, ESV)
“Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!” (Psalm 95:6, ESV)


One blessing we enjoy no matter what age we are is the privilege of worshiping together. Whether young or old, the same call to gather each Lord’s Day to simply remember Him is something we should all seek to follow. While gathering weekly may be a more practiced rhythm for the older believers, the principle is the same no matter our age: “In the same way, he took the cup of wine after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood. Do this in remembrance of me as often as you drink it’” (1 Corinthians 11:25, NLT).

And so we come. Together, we come. Age is put aside; social status and race disappear. United we come as God’s children to honor these precious words. May each of us truly grasp the privilege it is to share in this covenant supper and make it a regular part of our lives. Being present and being an active participant is required to connect to what God has clearly set before us in remembering the Lord in this unique way.

As we look around our congregation this morning, we’ll see young and old alike lifting up His name and singing His praises. What an honor and joy this is, and it warms the heart of our Savior. May we never grow accustomed to the privilege we enjoy as we gather to remember Him—together!
