Why we MUST Gather

Mark 2:1-2 KJV
And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house. And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.
So Why the gathering?
Because the presence of God comes in the house at the gathering of believers. Matthew 18:20

Because we are healed in the gathering of believers. Luke 6:19

Because the Word is preached in the gathering of believers. Mark 2:2

Because we are commanded- for instruction, for edification, for encouragement- to gather even more as the day of the Lord approaches, with other believers. Hebrews 10:24-25

Because, consider a lone body part; we cannot, I repeat, cannot grow, separated from gathering with other believers. Ephesians 4:11-15

We MUST gather.

Hebrews 10:24-26 CEV
24 And let us consider each other carefully for the purpose of sparking love and good deeds. 25 Don’t stop meeting together with other believers, which some people have gotten into the habit of doing. Instead, encourage each other, especially as you see the day drawing near.26 If we make the decision to sin after we receive the knowledge of the truth, there isn’t a sacrifice for sins left any longer.
