We know when 2 or 3 are gathered in His name, Christ is present. So with Christ present here, right now, what is our expectation? We should expect to meet with and hear from God. But are we ready to hear, to listen? One thing we know for sure: Jesus Christ is risen; He is alive! The empty tomb is the proof He is risen. This is why we gather, for the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes.
To show how calloused men's heart is. Jesus tell us in John 4:48: "Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe". When we, today, proclaim God's truths, we meet resistance all the time. Often we are asked "why", while Jesus tells us "go"! This is what we supposed to do when we hear the truth proclaimed. We GO. But they do not understand that the moment they are discipled to, Jesus shows up for THEM. To change them. All they have to do is accept it and they will be restored and healed.
Affliction and suffering will come to all of us. It can weary our souls and even be cause to give up (on faith). Do you believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of God? Because in His Word are many promises that, though we have tribulations in our lives, He will bring us thru and strengthen us. All we need is faith! Thru these same trials and testings' He will grow us closer to Him.
