For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
(Matthew 18:20 (NIV))
Have you ever truly encountered Jesus?
Based on this passage, it is clear when Jesus will grace us with His presence.
Do you encounter Jesus in your church? Do you encounter Jesus in your home? Do you encounter Jesus with your friends? Are these gatherings truly in His name or are they just a social event? What is the main purpose of these gatherings? Is there bickering and gossip? When you friends gather, do you talk about Jesus or do you talk about something else, such as work or sports?
Think about your answers for they will be very revealing about when and how often you actually do encounter Jesus.
My mind is racing all over the place with thoughts about missed opportunities to be with Jesus. If He is our Lord and Savior, we should gather with others who have been redeemed and praise His name even if it is with just one other person. He will inhabit the hearts of the faithful!
Do you want to bring about revival?
Do you want to see God move in your city?
Do you want to see lives changed?
Gather in His name!
