This last Thursday was an especially sweet worship service. I stood in the back of chapel and just allowed the music and words to flow over me. I looked out over the students and had one of those moments when you just feel the presence of the Lord in a special way. There was something special about that worship service. I could see it in the students as they sang. I thought how amazing is this?! Here we are…… a group of people from three countries and 10 language groups worshiping together.
It is easy to feel discouraged when that happens. In those moments you can do one of two things. You can get caught up trying to become like everyone around you. Or, you pull away because you feel it is just too hard. Either one is the wrong response.
Our fellowship with one another is not based on our sameness ….but solely on God’s love.
I am so thankful that at LTC, we are learning to love each other as God loves us. Yes, we are all different. We see things from different perspectives, we interpret events and speech from vastly different worldviews; but we love each other.
And ya’know…it’s true….. Love does cover!
