The Church @ En-gedi
En-gedi is an oasis located near the southwestern shore of the Dead Sea. It is a source of “living water” : God’s Grace, that originates from an inexhaustible spring which has been steadily flowing for thousands of years in the wilderness of Judea where little or nothing grows. At the site of the spring, water flows out of the hillside fresh and clear providing growth of vegetation in the immediate area, as well as quenching thirst for any traveler. Is there a church at En-gedi? No, not physically… but spiritually. En-gedi can serve as a model for all churches that profess Jesus as Savior and Lord and through whom the “living water” of the Holy Spirit freely flows. To me, Friday Home Group is just such a church. We are off the beaten path; one has to be searching or be drawn in order to find us, but the outpouring of God’s love and hope is clearly visible when in our midst. My prayer is that we will be steadfast in allowing the little “Oasis” on Welsh Hills road to keep flowing and to guide other weary travelers to the “living water” God is providing. Some may come to stay, others for only a time of refreshment and healing as they travel to another place and purpose prescribed by the Lord. As we receive “life” from Messiah, may we daily “live in Him and then pass that “life” on to others as He directs.
