Gathering in Christ
Then He took the twelve aside and said to them, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of Man will be accomplished.
The majority of us don’t bother much about God, and yet He deliberately stakes all He has on us. He stands by and lets the world, the flesh, and the Devil do their worst, confident we will come out all right. All our LORD succeeded in doing during His life on earth was to gather together a group of fishermen -- the whole church of God and the enterprise of our LORD on earth in a fishing boat!
It is not a question of our equipment, but of our poverty; not what we bring with us, but what He puts in us; not our natural virtues, our strength of character, our knowledge, our experience; all that is of no avail in this matter; the only thing that is of avail is that we are taken up into the big compelling of God and made His comrade (1 Corinthians 1:26-28).
