Gathered In His Name by Kirk Hunt
“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Matthew 18:20 NKJV
God’s people must gather. Perhaps, they are gathered by a cause. Perhaps they are gathered by the call to worship. Or service. Where a small number of men and women who are true Christ disciples gather, Christ also is present.
We gather for strength of numbers. Even if that is only or two. Leviticus 26:8 promises that God’s faithful people will have an impact out of proportion to their numbers.
We gather for accountability. James 5:16 directs us to confess our errors to each to fellow believers. Who better understands the successes and failures of the Christian life than faith Christians?
We gather for fellowship. 1 John 1:7 reminds us that we walk in the light with other believers. Since we are going the same way, would it not be better to walk together in friendship and mutual aid?
We gather for joy. Acts 2:46-47 prove God’s people know how to have a good time and not be hung over the next day. God’s presence among His people adds, if not multiplies, our joy, peace and comfort.
If you are one of God’s people, you should gather with us. If you are not one of God’s people, you should come and see what we are talking about. After all, there even two or three Christians are, Jesus is there also.
Think: I must gather together with men and women of Christ.
Pray: “Lord, help me to find my place among Your faithful people.”
