God on Sunday morning? Of course, God is everywhere. We know that God is
enthroned in the praises of his people. (Psalm 22:3) When we gather to worship
– God is with us.
We know that God is there when we pray. Jesus said, “For where
two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:20)
When we pray – God is with us.
We know that God is there when his Word is read, preached, loved
and obeyed. The Lord says, “I am watching over my word to perform it.”
(Jeremiah 1:12) When the Bible speaks – God is with us.
We know that God is everywhere. “Can a man hide himself in
secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the LORD. Do I not fill heaven
and earth? declares the LORD.” (Jeremiah 23:24) “The eyes of the LORD are in
every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.” (Proverbs 15:3) No matter
where we go – God is with us.
But did you know that God is back in the church nursery? “And
Jesus took a child and put him in the midst of them, and taking him in his
arms, he said to them, “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me,
and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me.” (Mark 9:36-37)
When you welcome a child in the name of Jesus you welcome Jesus himself. When
we minister to children – God is with us.
If you wonder why so many people are blessed by serving in the
church nursery. Now you know – God is there.
