Weekend – Presence
By Phillip Hamm
“And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Acts 2:21
Every year millions of people make a religious pilgrimage. In search of divine guidance, they travel long distances and spend exorbitant amounts of money. For example, Maha Kumbh Mela attracts 120 million people. Three million Muslims make the Hajj to Mecca annually. And the Makara Jyothi attracts nearly seven million people to a temple in the dense forests in southern India.
Every soul on Earth is driven by a divine spark to seek out that which is greater than themselves. But what if you didn’t have to travel halfway around the world? What if you didn’t have to spend crazy amounts of money? What if the interaction with the Creator was much more easily accessible?
As you prepare for worship on Sunday read Acts 2.
