i'm there

Ray Ortlund posts:

For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them. Matthew 18:20

There am I, not only I will be there, but I am there; as if he came first, is ready before them, they shall find him there.”

Matthew Henry, Commentary (McLean, n.d.), V:262. Italics original.

The Lord isn’t saying, “If you show up, so will I.” He is saying, “If you gather to be with me, I’m already there, waiting for you, ready and eager to be with you. I will so not withhold myself from my seeking friends.”
