Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 7th October

Always First in Fellowship

Go, tell his disciples – and Peter – that he is going before you into Gailee; there you shall see him, as he told you. (Mark 16:7)

Where He appointed to meet His disciples, there He would be. Jesus keeps His tryst. If He promises to meet us at the mercy seat, or in public worship, we may depend upon it that He will be there. We may stay away from the appointed meeting place, but He never does. He says, “Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there” (Matt 18:20).

Jesus is always first in fellowship: His heart is with His people, His delight is in them, He is never slow to meet them. In all fellowship He goes before us.

But He reveals Himself to those who come after Him: “There you shall see him.” To see Him is to be filled with joy and peace. And we shall see Him, for He promises to come to those who believe in Him and He does everything according to His word of promise, “As He said to you”.
