What is the problem here? Is this a praise of the mega-church in the next city? Actually the problem is not in the “multitude” (7230) but in having a “want" (dearth NASB) (657). It is a slightly different slant, but an important one. Big can work but is not necessary.
A lot is not the same as enough. One concept focuses on numbers, the other on need. One is quantity; the other, quality.
God does not play a numbers game. Remember that Jesus warned us,
(Matthew 7:13-14 KJV) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.So? I don’t know about you but I want to get through that gate. I won’t get there by following the crowd, looking for the biggest church or fitting in. Follow Jesus, not fashion.
