The Power Of Gathering

matthew-18-20-niv

 

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20). We know that through the finished work of the cross Jesus dwells in every believer. The kingdom of God is within us. We should know that Christ in us is all we need. He is in us and we are in Him. Paul says “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). However, there is something about gathering together with other believers that seems to amplify the presence of God. Jesus is there to encourage each other and work miracles according to the faith of the gathering. Sometimes it’s hard to have faith for oneself, but when two or three get together holding each other up, faith seems to flow and needs begin to be met where otherwise it seems hard. This is more than just agreement. It is the power of God multiplied.
