Day 8: Come to Me


They came because they wanted to~

even though it was dark and cold.

They came because they knew

WHO

was going to be the

main guest.

Don't you go somewhere

because you choose to be there

whether it is a

a football game, a concert, a party, or a vacation?

They came because they knew

ONE PERSON

was the main guest

and they knew that when they left

that

ONE PERSON

would be going home with them

in a different way

because

when

JESUS is the main guest

you will never be the same.

Whether it is a small bible study

or a mega church

or 2 people meeting for coffee

when

JESUS is the main guest

it becomes

better

than a football game, concert, party or vacation

because

A PEACE that "transcends all understanding" (Philippians 4:7)

A HOPE that "renews your strength" (Isaiah 40:31)

A JOY that makes you "rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer "(Romans 12:12)

&

A LOVE that is "patient, kind, does not envy, does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs" ( I Corinthians 13:4-5)

Covers the room

Creating a safe place

where

we gather

to

share our hearts openly

just because

we all showed up

in a little living room

on a cold Tuesday night

just because

JESUS

is the main guest

because

ONCE UPON A TIME

HE showed up in all of our hearts

filling us with

A PEACE

A HOPE

A JOY

&

LOVE

that will last a lifetime

beyond this lifetime

just because

we showed up.

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

Therefore~

"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—

and all the more as you see the Day approaching" (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Just because

"GOD IS JEALOUS FOR YOU" (watch the video below)
