While in Oklahoma City, we had the opportunity to connect and serve with a homeless shelter called CITY RESCUE MISSION. One of the highlights from working with CITY RESCUE MISSION was when we had the opportunity to join them in their daily morning devotional one day.
As we drove there that morning I was expecting to walk into a small chapel with a few people hearing a daily devotional thought. Let me put it this way: I was completely wrong.
We walked into a gym full of homeless people who live at the shelter. Our entire group dispersed ourselves though out the crowd. Worship began and immediately I knew God’s presence had discended on that room. We worshiped together as one church and it was a powerful moment.
I loved the fact that in that moment, there was no “homeless person” or “person that had a home.” All walls were immediately broken in God’s presence. There was no rich, no poor, those that had, or those that had not. We were all equal before God as broken people, desperate for God’s saving grace. It was a beautiful moment that I hope to remember for a long time.
Thank you God for being a god that breaks down so many walls. You are so good.
Have you ever been somewhere you have seen God breakdown walls? It could be walls of culture, religion, traditions, language, and much more. I would love to hear those stories.
