Why Some Say NO

On our first visit to Singing Oaks over 30 years ago, an elder and his wife invited us to their home group (that couple is still here). We were impressed. We soon joined a group that impacted our lives for many years to come, and still does because of the friendships we made. Not all the groups since that time have had the same influence, but all of them have impacted our life journey. I believe in the power of small groups, but Satan tempts us to say no! Here are some reasons:

A Precious Gift

How important is water? If you go by the number of times water or words associated with water are mentioned in the Bible you have to rank it pretty high. From the very beginning to the very end, it is there. It is often mentioned in the context of deliverance, rescue, salvation or simply a wonderful blessing from God. Without it civilizations perish. Without it we die. Water is life.

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” Colossians 4:2-6

I was reading through Colossians recently and came to one of my favorite sections, and since we’ve been involved with the Revive Texas outreach effort for the last 7 weeks it totally reminded me of what they are all about.

Future Fellowship

The importance of having close relationships in the community of believers is hard to overstate. It is a vital part of the abundant life in Christ. It helps us overcome and bear the burdens of life and brings joy. It brings joy in this life and the resurrection carries that fellowship into the future, into heaven itself as part of our reward.

“So with you: Now is your time of grief” – John 16:22a
Jesus had been with his disciples for 3 years, and they were close to each other. They had just eaten the Passover together for the last time, a Passover that Luke tells us Jesus eagerly desired to eat with them. Their close fellowship provided strength to overcome the rough times ahead for the disciples and for Jesus. But that sweet fellowship was about to be broken. The days of grief, the dark time of the cross was fast approaching. Jesus had to leave!

The Lord Will Provide

That phrase goes back to the time of Abraham. It’s the name of the place where God provided a ram to be offered instead of his son Isaac and is one of the great stories of the Bible. We serve a God who provides abundantly for his people and all creatures in so many different ways.

I see this working out all the time in our benevolence ministry. Food seems to appear! Bread just shows up in the community room most weeks. Other times it comes from different businesses or an “angel” that brings it from Our Daily Bread. Our stock of staple foods, can goods, beans and rice, cereal and the like is always adequate or full. Each week baskets from around the church building are collected and brought into the store. In the end the only thing I have to do is open the door and everything is there. Also every Thursday there are 5 boxes of fresh organic vegetables sitting on the counter. And during certain seasons, food just appears in large bags either in our office area or on tables in the community room — even today while writing I walked over and found about 600 cans of green beans and corn in 3 shopping carts inside the door of our pantry. It’s all pretty amazing. We have never run out of food and I doubt we ever will.
