Convergence is the bringing together of two points. In the work of the Christian that means the Spirit and the Soul. In most people, it is the flesh and it’s demanding five senses commanded by the mind that occupies most our activities and attention. Have you noticed that it is very difficult to get alone with your thoughts let alone to quiet yourself before the Lord? If you do stop for a moment and carefully listen, what do you hear? Inside your home you hear television, computers, radios, and other electronic devices, kids, washing machines, etc. How about outside your home? Cars, trucks, construction, sirens, lawn mowers among any number of other sounds that rattle the ears. If you do think for a moment in actual quiet, you can hear your mind race and it speaks of worry, deadlines, regrets, anger, decisions to be made, and who knows what else. Regardless, it’s all noise. To get off this time consuming and stressful monster that imprisons you a decision to change is required. But you say I cannot, because everyone is counting on me to uphold my end. “And He sent his servant at supper time to say to them that was bidden, come; for all things are now ready. Luke 14:18 and they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. Luke 14:19 and another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. Luke 14:20 and another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. Luke 14:21 so that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. Luke 14:22 and the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. Luke 14:23 and the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:24 For I say unto you, that none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper”.  The issue then, is us, and our willingness to believe that we are able to forsake all to follow Him if called. It obviously is impossible to live on this earth and beckon to the call of the Lord and not believe that the Father truly does know what it is you need and be more than able to provide it. It is interesting to note that every great person spoken of in the Bible received a call from God first and then he or she complied in belief and faith to see results. If there is turmoil within, calling you to a closer walk with Him, you have been called by God Himself and you are truly blessed. This turmoil I speak of may appear in the form of questions such as: Who am I? Where am I? What am I? Of course this is by no means a conclusive list, but I venture the question will be unique to each person including a yearning for more depth and exposure to Spiritual growth than what you currently experience in your life. From this choice of entering in to the care and direction of the Lord you enter into a land called “Ekklesia” which means being called out or called forth. These are the people called out of the world’s systems. They walk in personal communion with the Lord. In God’s presence truths will be shown that are veiled to mortals. We learn of things never dreamed of. Understanding will embrace that which was previously obscure. Spirits blossom into the awesome plan of God.
