Yesterday I thought of how beautiful God’s creation is as I stood in wonder of the trees and flowers of Spring. Today I am in awe of how God brings His children together in worship and fellowship. These are the wonderful brothers and sisters who come to Iglesia Metodista Unida Betel to have an encounter with Christ.
I am reminded of what Holy Scripture tells us in Acts 2: 42-47
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
This is what God’s people do: devote themselves to God’s word, prayer and the breaking of bread with glad and sincere hearts.
Each time I come to this sacred place I stand in awe of what God teaches me about love through these people. And who do they pray for? The poor and the suffering in our community and the communities all along our border.
I am deeply humbled and grateful.
