What if ... ?
What if the eye that watched over you became that hand holding you?
"For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them".
I don't know if you have also given thought to these words of Jesus. I believe like myself, we have held on to the truth that the Lord is present always when we gather, which is the absolute truth that cannot be denied. But beloved, lets turn the other side of the coin and see what is there too.
Our faith in the above passage should cause us to ask the question, whenever we gather as people of God to worship, do we really make room for Jesus?
Have we thought of where Jesus will sit?
What would he say about us?
What would we tell him in return?
How do we dress to meet and dine with him?
Did I hear someone say "are these questions relevant?" What would you do if you knew the person who sat by you last service meeting was Jesus himself?
Psalm 34:15 says " The eyes of the LORD watch over those who do right; his ears are open to their cries for help." (see also 1 Peter 3:12)
Obviously you haven't given a thought to this? What if the eye that watched over you became that hand holding you?
Each day, the LORD promises to be with us even unto the end of the world (Matthew 28: 20) and has assured to dine with us in his Kingdom. You can't afford to give a blind eye to these statements or take them lightly. Jesus has already been there in our congregational services and as surely as we continue to meet as followers, He will be present each time. The question is, how will you act next time you are in worship with Jesus by your side? What if the eye that watched over you became that hand holding you
Psalm 33:4 - For the word of the LORD holds true, and we can trust everything he does.
