- David the psalmist longed to be in the house of God. Psalm 84
Psalm 84:1–2 How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD of hosts! My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the LORD ; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.
Psalm 84:10 For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
A day in church is better than a day spend in the tents of wickedness. Although we as a church are to witness to those that dwell among the tents of wickedness, we are to dwell in the courts of heaven someday, when Christ comes to bring is bride home.
