Coffee is an international commodity. Coffee is a liaison for social relations. Coffee is an element by which people may come into fellowship with Jesus.
When I think about “Coffee with Jesus,” I think about drinking coffee with His presence being in the midst of what I am doing. For the most part, this only happens when I am in solitude and a quiet sense within the setting. It is hard to experience His peace in any other manner, at least for me. For instance, if I am researching a topic for Biblical study, the presence of Jesus is with me and guiding me through the research process. Furthermore, I experience moments of reflection and enlightenment because of His presence. On the other hand, when I am engaged with music, either by listening to it or perhaps singing or playing a musical instrument, my soul may be uplifted or even brought to peace through His Spirit working within me.
When I think about “Coffee with Jesus,” I think about drinking coffee with brethren in Jesus and sharing a time of fellowship because of the roots we have in Him. The coffee serves as a common denominator by which we may catch up on impressionable events within our lives. In effect, we can share times of joy or hardship and provide each other with both social and spiritual re-enforcement. Furthermore, drinking coffee also serves as an opportunity for non-believers to join in the discussion, whether it’s an open-ended fellowship or an organized Bible study.
In closing, when I think about “Coffee with Jesus,” I think about the role that Jesus fulfills in refining a person or set of persons. Although no one can ever reach refinement unto perfection within their lifetime, there is a hope that through Jesus, one can do so when they are in heaven. For the time being, with the help of Jesus, we can all strive to maintain a healthy relationship with Him. Hence, it will help us have healthy relationships with other people whom we encounter within our lives.
