More Than Enough

Posted on June 7, 2013 at 3:25 PM

Jesus said, “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.” Here Jesus explained that when we gather as the church it takes only two people to experience prayer and no more than two or three people to experience His presence. Yet, if we call for a prayer meeting and only one other person shows up and we schedule a worship service and only three of us come, there is a tendency to shorten the time, cut our loses, and consider it a failed attempt at being spiritual. Somehow the embarrassment of having so few believers involved in these efforts begins to govern our next attempt, but Jesus knew the way of battling discouragement was to set the bar real low. That was a stroke of genius, because dynamic revivals and spiritual awakenings have historically begun with the smallest of quorums before they grew into culture changing movements. We tend to think more is better; more people, more money, more vacation time, etc., and anything less than more is a curse, but the reality is every big blessing starts with a little seed before it becomes a tree. And when we are called by God to begin a new venture we usually don’t start with a grown tree but a small seed that needs to be planted. Wisdom is knowing that it will probably begin with just the two or three of us in a room, praying to our heavenly Father and enjoying the presence of Jesus. And that is more than enough.
