Breakfast Tomorrow?

A small group of us get together at the Eagle Inn Restaurant on Water Street at 7:00 a.m. (or thereabouts) twice a month. It’s a men’s Bible study group where we enjoy each other’s company. We study the Word of God. We discuss and apply. We pray. We eat good food.  We tell stories and laugh. When the hour is up, having had spiritual and physical nourishment, we head out.  

It struck me, as I thought about it, how different we are, even in this small group–and yet so similar. We are different ages. We come from different backgrounds and grew up in different places. We have different jobs, etc. Yet we are similar, most importantly, in that we share an appreciation for the unfailing and always faithful Word of God. We rejoice that we have a relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We strive to be faithful witnesses of our Lord through what we say and by the way we live our lives, by the Holy Spirit’s power.  

This common (holy) ground we share makes it possible for us to communicate and understand each other. This fellowship provides us with encouragement when we head back out into the sometimes cold, cruel world.

I thank the Lord for the privilege of being part of this group.
