Intersection

Jesus of Nazareth taught his students that, "Where two or three are gathered in my name, I’m there with them," (Gospel of Matthew, chapter 18 verse 20, Common English Bible). The rest of the New Testament, particularly the Acts of the Apostles, is permeated with the idea that he, through the Holy Spirit, is there at meetings of Christians.

This means that church is not a club where we get together for donuts on Sunday, it's a place where Heaven and Earth interlock. Assuming we haven't forgotten that, the Lord Messiah will quite often speak there.

Are we listening?

"If he calls you, say ‘Speak, LORD. Your servant is listening,” (First Book of Samuel, chapter  3 verse 9, Common English Bible )
