GOD is working in our House Churches

Posted by Brandon Steele on

Every week after our House Churches meet, every House Church Leader answers a few questions about how thing went.  Simple things like, "Who all came" and "What were the good things that happened."  A couple of weeks ago, one of the questions was, "Where did you see GOD last night in your House Church?"  And for some reason the way our leaders responded really struck me.

I read about one of our Passion House Churches, how they went for a 5-mile run in the pouring rain and how they were reminded about the way GOD cleanses us and washes away all of the things that are not of him.

I read about single guys that are sponsoring 3 children through Compassion International by themselves.

I read about how the Ezra series and the REVIVAL that GOD was stirring 2500 years ago is directly speaking to people, its as if GOD were speaking the very things they needed to hear.

I read about how people are finding true community.  They are sharing life with people that love them despite their flaws, their sin and their inconsistency.  And about how they are growing in their love for GOD and others together.

I read about how GOD is stirring comfortable people to change.

I read about how people were coming alive talking about Jesus!

For some reason I felt compelled to share this with you this morning.  GOD, for whatever reason, continues to dwell among us, to pursue us even when we sin and to love us.

I hope you have a great day, but I hope its because your eyes are opened and you see the work, the movement, the presence of GOD.

I'll leave you with these words from Colossians.  I don't know if you're like me, but I'm so forgetful in my faith.  I have a bad day or go through some temptation and  then I forget about how good Jesus is, I take my eyes, my focus off of him for one second and I forget how much I need him and how he is literally the only reason I'm at peace with GOD. So, I leave you with these words about Jesus, the one we serve!

"The Son is the image of the invisible GOD, the firstborn over all creation.  For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together......For GOD was pleased to have all his fulness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or in heaven, by making peace through his blood shed on the cross.  Once you were alienated from GOD and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior.  But now he had reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation-if you continue in your faith, established and firm and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel."  Colossians 1:15-21
