Sharing the Word of God

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 in the word of God takes precedence. A small group who recognize that Jesus is the head and has 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 songs.  It took place in a small church.  It is a building, in which two different denominations are shared.  At one extremity, there is the podium of one denomination and at the other extremity the podium of the other.  In between, there are the pews. The pew's back support swivels in a manner that it allows inclining in one direction to another without moving the pews.  Some commented how genius that the two different denominations came up with 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 for a greater understanding and knowledge of God. I have a long desire to be united with such a group. Although we are on 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.
