Church At Home
It's Sunday, October 11, 2020, and it's another Sabbath at home. The virus that has brought a new experience into the world, and the word is to stay at home if you can. And at my age, almost 92, there's even more reason for me to stay away from other people, including at my home church, which they've allowed to re-open to a dwindling congregation. I can't get used to it. I'm in good health, and I'm missing church on Sunday mornings.
But my Bible is here, and it still says that God is with us at all times, so I sat down to read a book that gives very reliable accounts of times when the power of “
"coincidence" works wonders. In the book, those are called "Winks."
It didn't take long for tears were flowing and the Blessings I got let me was thanking the Lord for my church at home.
After all, I wasn't alone. God the Father, and His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, and angels that I always thank Christ for, are right here with me, so church at home went fine. In the Old Testament, God told Joshua, "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee, whithersoever thou goest."
There are more, but moving to the New Testament, in last chapter of the first book there, it says of the Lord, "Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."
That's good company. If you feel a need for "something," the Lord is inviting you to let Him into your heart, and it's as easy as saying, "Lord, I've put this off, too long, and I'm ready to let you forgive my past sins and to live for You, starting now." And home church or elsewhere, you're Heaven bound.
