God's presence

I'm just home after this evening's family meetings. I love gathering with the people of God. I was reminded afresh this evening about how much God wants for everyone to know his presence, and to walk in step with him. He's great, and I love him.

I love that verse in 1 Corinthians 14, 'So they will fall down and worship God, exclaiming, “God is really among you!”' May it be so amongst us, may the presence of the great, good, loving God be felt so clearly that lives are impacted and radically transformed for the better. Meeting God doesn't always change everything: we often need to choose to align ourselves with the work of the spirit in us to see long lasting change. But meeting with god does always result in some change, and always for the better. Maybe I will need to really touch God's presence a hundred times for a bit of my heart to be truly softened. Well, let's get going!

What a great bunch of people Wantage Community Church is - thank you for coming on this journey of discovering what it is to be a church of the presence of God with me.
