This month my husband and I attended our first ever Pastor’s conference and had a wonderfully blessed time. I am beyond thrilled that we were a part of this life changing event.
There was only one couple at this conference that I had met previously. Everyone else I came in contact with was a fresh, new face. However, I kept noticing all of these different people and thinking, “Where have I seen her before?” “I know I know him.” “I have had to have met this couple before….they look so familiar.” I’m sure my husband grew tired of hearing me make those statements about every person we were introduced to, but I couldn’t shake the feeling of familiarity.
That being said, I know for a fact that (with the exception of one couple) this conference was my first time meeting all of these people. I felt my brain was playing tricks on me because I seemed to recognize each person I talked to, knowing that we’d never had prior contact.
Finally it hit me. Have you ever met someone for the first time and said something along the lines of “You must be So-n-so’s daughter because you look just like her!” Well, that’s just it— when we come in contact with sons and daughters of the Most High God, we should recognize them. They should resemble the Father. We should resemble the Father! I just so happened to be in services and fellowship with men and women of God. These people were all fellow members of the body of Christ. I may have never seen these people before in my life, but they were so familiar to me….because they were family.
I’m so glad to be a part of the great family of God. What’s even greater? In the twinkling of an eye, all of His children will be carried away to the best family reunion one could imagine. I can’t wait and I hope to see you there!
