The church is often seen as a gathering of God's people, more than the mere physical building.

Have you ever wondered how the pulpit, the preaching, the worship, the Bible study, the cell group meeting, and personal Quiet Time with God come about in the church? Here's the answer ...

Nehemiah 8:4-6 (NAS)
And Ezra the scribe stood at a wooden podium which they had made for the purpose ... And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people for he was standing above all the people; and when he opened it, all the people stood up. Then Ezra blessed the LORD the great God. And all the people answered, "Amen, Amen!" while lifting up their hands; then they bowed low and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground.

Nehemiah 8:9 (NAS)
Then Nehemiah, who was the governor, and Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who taught the people said to all the people, "This day is holy to the LORD your God; do not mourn or weep." For all the people were weeping when they heard the words of the law.

Nehemiah 8:13, 14 (NAS)
Then on the second day the heads of fathers' households of all the people, the priests, and the Levites were gathered to Ezra the scribe that they might gain insight into the words of the law. And they found written in the law how the LORD had commanded through Moses ...

Nehemiah 8:18 (NAS)
And he read from the book of the law of God daily, from the first day to the last day. And they celebrated ... according to the ordinance.
