Huni leads a group of men in study of the word on Thursday nights. It’s been like a mystery to me. He goes off to the study once I have already left to meet with a certain teen girl. He comes back much later than I, usually. But when he comes back, he beams. He glows. He’s so humbled that the Lord would choose Him as a lens through which others can see His light reflected more clearly. He’s so excited about the revelations that ride into the room and rest there on their hearts and minds. He’s so determined to study harder next week so that God can do more, show more, give more through him.
Tonight was different. Our timing was all off and rushed and compromised so I needed to drop him off instead of our usual divide and conquer routine. We pulled up with five minutes to spare and one brother was already there. Ready. Patiently waiting. Huni discovered that he had no keys to get in so we had to jam to the house and get the keys. We came back and there they were, waiting around the door, dappin’ each other up, laughing. Joy, expectation and excitement were all present there with them on the sidewalk as they waited to get into the building to meet with God. I could tell that Huni was so excited. He was distracted by it all and he too just couldn’t wait to get in there and get it going. I watched him as he made his way across the street carrying pizza, wings and the word. I watched them as he approached. I got so excited at the sight. I can’t imagine how our Father must have felt.
I don’t know what all happens in that room. I just know that lives are being changed. Huni is being changed. Iron is being sharpened. God is being glorified. Our brothers are getting stronger. And because of that, our world is getting better. God is just too good.
