Praising God in Our Home
I’ve heard stories of the underground church in China. Sometimes, they would gather 30-40 people into a small apartment, maybe even more. They would sing praises to God. Sure, it wasn’t the most comfortable thing in the world, but they were enjoying fellowship with one another, and with their Father in heaven. What keeps us in America from enjoying the same fellowship and love? Comfort could be the key concept there. I am trying to figure out a way to get 14-20 people in our house for some praise and fellowship. However, our living room is small, our house is not very attractive, and we wonder what would happen if too many people came. If worse came to worse, we could have one small group of folks singing in the living room and another group in the dining room. These rooms are totally separated by a wall. Not the best setting, but would God care?
In Acts 2:46-47 where Luke writes that the Christians met daily in the temple and in their homes. He didn’t qualify that statement by saying they met in wonderful 5 bedroom ranch houses with lots of room. They simply met. Can we do the same today? I’ll find out and keep you informed.
