BECAUSE I KNOW SO LITTLE….
In the grand scheme of things, I really don’t know that much.
That may not be a shock to those of you who know me, but, it is a bit humbling to me.
But, that gives me another proof for the existence of God.
I meet together most every week with three different groups of men, all believers. Our purpose in each of the groups is to share and discuss different aspects of the Bible.
What we have all learned is that we love and serve a God of infinite abilities, infinite wisdom….
And we can’t begin to grasp what that really means.
But each one of us shares something, some tiny little glimpse into the nature and ability of God that we experience because He has placed that little part of himself into us.
We are so finite…we can only think one thought at a time, we get so easily distracted, I mean, literally, we could stop living in the next second, and we would have no idea that it was about to end.
But, back to the existence of God…when God spreads his Life through his people, he speaks through them as well.
This gathering together with believers…man, you have no idea how inspiring and energizing it is to hear God’s voice coming out of the mouth of a friend, a brother (or sister) in Christ.
You can find areas where you are wrong, ideas where you are right, and see how God’s plan to make a “building” of living stones out of his people is a plan that grows stronger men and women that walk through a world in darkness in order to shine his light.
But, I have to tell you, when I see the talk that pours through the social media about the hate and animus that Christians are forcing on this country… well, truthfully, I don’t see that at all. I don’t think these people know any Christian people. (I am talking about people who have been made new, who were changed at some point in their life by the power of God as they finally gave in to his will, to his way).
Because we realize that we know so little, we can sit in a group and talk,
and walk out as if we are really brothers…
Loving each other…
Trying to shine the little flash of light we do have.
