Church last night: a church where no one in ministry is paid, with a history of church planting:
A testimony: “I used to call myself a drug addict, now I call myself a child of God.”
A report about an outreach meeting in another town: A spiritualist saved. Another person newly converted bringing their friend to church; the friend loving it.
Report 2: A new venture for young folk on the periphery of the church spiritually. tailored for them. Some of them really touched by God.
A conversation over coffee: “I thought I could be a Christian on my own before I cam here. But see the first time I came here? The presence of God was just amazing! I never knew that the presence of God is so strong when everyone is together. It is amazing ( wide -eyed astonishment and amazed laughter).”
All that, plus beautiful worship and the most upbuilding, helpful and personally relevant short sermon, the laying on of hands and prayer…
So glad I was there….
God bless you this day, and God bless and renew the Church in Scotland, and in your land, wherever you may be reading this blog.
No matter how dead a church (or individual) might appear, the power of our God has not changed and brings transformation, as in the valley of dead, dry bones.
