When slaves were running for freedom, they didn’t worry about what little possession they had unless it was a Bible. They left with the clothes on their back. When the first church began to worship, they didn’t worry if the seats had a cushion. If the floors were covered with rugs. Nor indulge in any luxurious amenities we find in today’s house of worship. They gathered to fellowship as one heart toward the saving grace of God.
At the beginning of this pandemic, many rush to stores purchasing any and everything they thought they could not live without. Buying in quantities that would classify them as being a hoarder. People turned to things in fear to comfort them, but things do nothing for the soul. It is known that some of the richest people in the world are also some of the most miserable people in the world.
Our soul, our spirit can not be comforted by material things for it has no use of it. Our soul, which better referred to as our spirit man, is just that a spirit that can only be nurtured by the Spirit which created it.
During these days we must look past the comforts of the flesh. Past the comforts the money affords. For these things are temporary, and brings no peace. We must seek the one who is the author and finisher of our soul. The only one who can give us peace beyond any understanding even in the midst is our sorrow and pain. In the word, He states that “He stands at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”
Jesus longs to comfort us, but we must want to be with Him, to seek Him to rely on Him. Your anxieties and fears will have no power over you if your mind stays on the living sustaining Word of God.
If you desire the comfort of a loving Father; and to dine with the Savior who waiting to eat with you, we are here to introduce you. Leave a comment below and someone will contact you and invite you into the family as you are.
