That is what pleases God
Something wonderful is taking place in my little town of Glovertown, NL. A small group of Christians have started to gather each Wednesday evening for bible study. Not any kind of bible study, but one that the word of God takes precedent. A small group who recognize that Jesus is the head and have power and authority over the participant. Jesus is center stage.
Last winter I visited a small community for fellowship and praising God by singing hymn song. It toke place in a small church. It is a building, in which two different denominations shared. At one extremity, there is the podium of one denomination and at he other extremity the podium of the other. In between there are the pews. The pews back support swivel in a manner that it allow to incline in one direction to another without moving the pews. Some commented how genius that the two different denomination came up to this solution to share the cost of administering the expense of the building. I commented, "wouldn't it be better if the pews were all positioned in a circle so that Jesus could be in the centre?"
It is a blessing to be part of the Body of Christ; it is a greater blessing to be among those who agree and partake in searching a greater understanding and knowledge of God. I have long desire to be united with such a group. Although we are in a different level of understanding, I feel the Spirit of God is among the participants who desire to grow in the knowledge of God.
"Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding". Proverbs 3:13
"The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law". Deut 29:29
"At that time Jesus answered and said, "I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes". Matt 11:25 Boy I'm glad to be a babe.
"the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints." Col 1:26
Blessed is the man who listens to me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors. Pro 8:24. Doesn't this resemble to "The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins?" It is therefore wise that we nourish our soul by seeking ye first the kingdom of God, by putting Jesus the centre of our life. Sharing the Word of God is wiser than sharing the cost of a building.
