It has always been important for God's people to gather together! They were devoted to observing the Lord's Supper together. They were not scattered or fragmented. The church's physical presence together was the important thing. It represented Unity and Oneness. God is teaching us that no matter what is going on in the world, His Word is not to be broken. God is teaching us that we should be more committed to His Word than our carnal appetites. God is teaching us to look forward to the times we will be able to gather in-person. Doctrine does not change because of a temporary inconvenience.
