Gathering things together creates abundance. Whenever there is an abundance of things the possibility of sharing increases. Sharing will produce an atmosphere of satisfied needs. Satisfaction generates rejoicing. The Lord is gathering believers in His Son. The believers put their trust in Him, which allows them to abound in many things. Believers share what the Lord has given with others. The needs of the community are met by tangible and intangible ways. The celebration of God’s faithfulness draws others to become believers. At the heart of these celebrations is the spiritual reality that you must gather before you can give.
