Wednesday, March 14th. Matthew 18:20

Our devotions this Lenten season have been written by members of Faith Lutheran Church.  Today’s devotion is by Richard Pett. Also, if you would like to join our staff in praying the liturgy for Responsive Prayer/Suffrages just click here.

 

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them. Matthew 18:20

 

One of the strengths of any church is its members. God has indeed richly blessed Faith Lutheran Church in that regard!

 

Our family has always treasured the relationships we have made while worshipping at Faith. Whether it is attending church together or serving in leadership, on a committee, or joining in one of the many learning or fellowship opportunities that Faith offers, it is always with friends in Christ.

 

We find God touching us in all things we do here, because it really is true that even when we are only two or three, God is with us…The Holy Spirit reaches out and fills us with faith, hope, and love – for each other and for those outside the body that is Faith Lutheran Church.

 

As we go into Lent, let us be ever mindful that God is in us whether it is just a couple of folks visiting before church, or with the Council when it deliberates a difficult decision.

 

He is with us in our homes, schools, businesses, on the highway, and even while we sleep. God loves us when we are alone, and when we are with others. We do not always make the right decisions or actions, but God is there, with forgiveness and love, to direct us away from the evils of this world and towards righteousness.

 

May we be reminded that the point is not how many of us are gathered, rather, that God will be with us whenever we open our hearts and minds to him.

 

Let us pray:  God, thank you for the gift of your son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Whenever we gather, be it two or three, or the entire congregation, may the Holy Spirit always be in our midst, your loving hand leading us in worship, learning, fellowship, and service. Please remind us to always be a light unto the world and to each other.  Amen.
