These strange words end that strangest of books, Ezekiel. And it is easy to read them and not pay them any of the attention they deserve. They mean: “The Lord is there”.
Wherever we are, the Lord is there. “Wherever two or three gather in my name there am I in the midst of them” is not meant to be a consoling soothing comfort for those who don’t have many members attending the prayer meeting. Rather, it is an astonishing powerful truth - Jesus in his mighty glory, Jesus Resurrected is here with us, actually where we are. Statistics are not ever again to be the measure of God’s presence.
You see, (if I can put it this way) he can’t help himself. He doesn’t work harder in one place than another. He is not moody. He doesn’t change in his desire and willingness and power to bless us. He is not here and then gone. No, Yahweh Shammah, The Lord is there.
It follows then that the Life, the Love, the Joy, the Liberty, and the Power of God is always, but always here, in and among us. Count on his presence. And you will see him moving.
