God has a way of testing us when we don't even realize it. I was sharing dinner with a group last night. Most of these people don't share my belief that Christians should be meeting in the homes. They attend institutional churches. I was talking to some of the other people who are somewhat open to the idea of home church and I was just describing how for the first 300 years of Christianity people met in the homes not church buildings. Well, the hostess of the evening, who attends an institutional church, said, Well, I'm getting fed where we are going. Also, she said sarcastically, "My grandsons are doing well in the youth ministry at their church. They would'nt get that from their dad by sitting at home. Well, my blood began to boil and I was ready to explode. It was only because of the Holy Spirit that I didn't say anything, but then I reflected on the situation when I got home and realized that this was only a small test. Please share with me some of your times of testing when you tried to express your thoughts about home church versus the institutional church because I need encouragement to stay strong during these times.
