Sunday, January 17

Love Jehovah, all you who are loyal to him!—Ps. 31:23.


Jehovah expects his worshippers to separate themselves from Babylon the Great. However, this requires more than our cutting ties with false religion. We must be determined to uphold true religion—the pure worship of Jehovah. Consider two ways that we can do that. First, we must remain firm for Jehovah’s righteous moral standards. We cannot accept the world’s values and standards. For example, we do not approve of sexual immorality of any kind, including marriage between people of the same sex and other homosexual lifestyles. (Matt. 19:4, 5; Rom. 1:26, 27) Second, we must continue worshipping with our fellow Christians. We do this wherever we can, whether in our Kingdom Halls or, when necessary, in private homes or even in secret. No matter what happens, we cannot let up in our routine of meeting together for worship. In fact, we need to meet together “all the more so as [we] see the day drawing near.”—Heb. 10:24, 25. w19.10 16 ¶6-7

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

Thirteen-year-old Ezra Hurst of Fort Smith has a set routine he carries out during worship services at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in their area.

Ezra -- who has autism and Down syndrome and is also nonverbal -- stands with his parents, Eric and Sheila Hurst, and older brother, Levi, during the opening song and prayer. Once the congregation is seated, he sits and removes his shoes until the members stand to sing together once again.
