A few days ago I was at a local coffee shop sitting around a table with some amazing people. Just a few tables over were some more amazing people. I call them amazing because at 7:30 on a Monday night, all of them were making plans for ways to serve God’s people. They are the Body of Christ.

Do you know the stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table? In brief, King Arthur would hold meetings with his most noble advisors, Knights, and warriors to make plans for their kingdom. The table was round to signify that no one person was the head, all were considered equal in standing.

This makes me think of Monday night and the many round table opportunities I have had over the last few months. I have sat around tables in restaurants, coffee shops and homes. I have sat on patio furniture, lounge chairs and leather couches. In every place, was an intentional time and place and people I was meant to know, love and share in grace with. God had a plan for us to be together. A plan to discuss Kingdom business.

I don’t know when I stopped believing in coincidences. I have heard and shared in too many conversations to believe that our time together as believers is an accident. And when I am with you I know God has brought you, brought me, to this place at this time for a purpose. For His purpose. He amazes me with the people He brings into my life. How creative He has been in transforming, freeing so many. The testimonies we all share of how a life that never should have been around that table are there discussing His beauty.

So, it’s time to be intentional, my friends. We are His warriors, His knights, His children, coming together around tables discussing Kingdom business. We are a mighty people. We are amazing.
