And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.
We need some noise today. We need the presence of Jesus made know about our city so that people know where Jesus is.
We do not need much noise about who else is there. We do not need much noise about what else has been done. But we do need some noise that Jesus has entered into our presence. People need to know where the Lord is so He can preach the Word to them.
The great thing for people to hear about is not how much our missions offering is, not how many people have come to the altar, not who has preached in our church. People need to know where to find Jesus.
And the word "noised" I think is a good word for us. It doesn't have to be eloquent. It doesn't have to be educated; it just has to be heard.
Lord, give our church a zeal about the Lord so we can't help but noise it out that Jesus is with us.
