In that simple moment I was transported into a world of beauty. If I felt this deeply for watching a celebration of strangers, how much more must God feel when his people are united in celebrating each other and God! There is power in these experiences. In fact, in Matthew 18:19 Jesus promises, "if two of you agree as touching anything, it will be done by my Father in heaven." So why not claim the inheritance that is promised in these words?
Of course, the experience was not over so easily. When I felt that intimacy with God, by watching unknown folk celebrating I was quietly thanking God for letting me see such beauty. The very next moment my taxi-driver for some unknown reason offered me a litchi-flavoured toffee. I politely refused, but he insisted. Not wanting to hurt him, I accepted his simple gift. I have not seen that taxi-driver again, but I m always praying for him. Hope God will let me celebrate, by helping me meet him again.
