Where does the Lord put his name upon us?
The Lord especially blesses His congregation that is gathered together around His Word and Sacraments, when the pastor blesses them with the Lord’s Blessing. Receiving the Lord’s Blessing alone is sufficient reason to attend the worship service. The Lord does not withhold His blessing from those who for insurmountable reasons, such as illness or old age, cannot attend the worship services, but would desire to do so, but He is also their refuge and help. They too are the objects of His blessing and the prayers of the congregation.
