Wherever two or three…

I have always said that one of the great things about being a pentecostal pastor is that you never know at any given service what is going to happen. 

Last night was our normal weekly Bible study.  It was rather a low attendance, some of our regulars were missing for a variety of reasons, but God was present by His Holy Spirit.  There was a wonderful time of refreshing during the worship time.  (I noticed this morning that my wife had blogged last night about the service, so I wasn’t the only one who noticed. You can check it out by clicking here 

The fellowship is always good.  It is common for many of us to hang around after the service talking for quite a while.  Last night was no exception.

What stood out to me at this service was a comment that was made toward the end of the service by one of our elder saints.  Opal, who is in her nineties, attends regularly on Sundays and Wednesdays.  She gave a little start, and then commented “Jesus brought God to earth, and man into heaven.”  The comment immediately resonated within my spirit as a wonderfully, succinct but intensely meaningful statement.  I told her that I was going to use that line myself. (Actually, I told her I was going to ‘steal’ it, but hey, I’m giving her the credit!)  In fact, several people said that they were going to include it in their blog, but I’m getting mine out first.

My point is that wherever two or three are gathered together in the name of Christ, He is present in their midst.  God will be present when people come together to worship him.  Church attendance is a great thing and God uses it to touch our hearts and our lives, but we have to get off the couch, out the door, and into the church for us to be a part.

Anything can happen.

    […] Church is a place to gather together to corporately worship God, to quiet ourselves before Him, to help us grow in our faith, to hear from Him through His word, during praise, and in prayer time.   Curt also blogged about church today.  To read his perspective click here. […]

    Hear hear! Agreed 100% … may we all ‘get off the couch and out the door…’ into relationships as the church 🙂

    bajanpoet, thanks for your comment. Our relationship is with God and also with other people, especially our family of faith.
