I really believe that bigger is not better. It took me a long time to get there… had to go thru a lot of stuff so He could undo all I had been taught by the systems.….. The Lord really seems to like this just 2 or 3 thing even more than I do… I believe He is trying to communicate something to us… you see, when my natural man takes hold of something, then philip needs to get the whole world involved… so I work towards “two or three hundred gathering in His name”… or… two or three thousand... but…. He said where just “two or three” get together... then He shows up.
Here is another verse about two…“After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go.” Here we go again… just two by two. He sends us where He is “about to go”…. just two by two….
More about two or three: 9Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: 10If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. 11Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? 12Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
So…. what does He have in mind… to send us out two by two to do exactly what He was sent to do.… “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”
This is not complicated…. He never organized anything… built any buildings… formed any hierarchies… He just loved on people… blessed them… forgave them… helped them… healed them… served them…
I will try to get very specific tomorrow…. and muse about what Jesus said He was sent here to do…. I may just find out what I was sent here to do…
