Jesus, Party Animal

A famous portion of scripture is the one where Jesus proclaims: For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. I wish I could have been on the scene when the Lord said that, to catch the tone in His voice.

Most of the sermons and teachings I’ve heard on this verse have been solemn and lofty.   They portray something mystical.  But I wonder if that’s really what Jesus had in mind or if He was simply giving us a glimpse of how much He loves being with His people … like the college student who tells his friends, “Whenever you guys get together, I’m there!”

No doubt this scripture is a great promise with deep meaning.  Pesonally I love it.  It shows me that Jesus is a party animal.  So let’s have a party.

    What a great way to look at this passage. I never considered those words with this tone. Probably because it has always been quoted with such a spiritual reference. But this viewpoint makes Jesus so much more relational. I will try to remember that the next time I use that passage in my life.
