Where two or three are gathered together in My name I am there in the midst of them. Matthew 18
Our Father in Heaven is not big on taking attendance. Although His Son, Jesus, drew massive crowds of people at times, large numbers are not essential for the Holy Spirit to be in our midst. Instead, He desires for us to meet in Jesus’ name so that He is our point of gathering.
- Gathering together in His name means that we are known by God and by His name.
- Gathering together in His name means gathering according to the character and nature of Jesus.
- Gathering together in His name means gathering in a manner that Jesus would endorse.
Jesus isn’t up front, closer to the minister or leaders. He is IN THE MIDST, there to be close to all. *David Guzik
