A Great Day

Sunday, June 29th, 2008

 What a great day.

The last three or four weeks have been something else. But for Christ, they would have been completely overwhelming. It seems as if great forces have been mobilized against us, coming at us from almost every direction.

Yet, John’s words, “Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world,” have never seemed truer.

Despite the sometimes amazing, sometimes terrible, and sometimes bizarre occurrences of the last three to four weeks, I have to say that I don’t think God has ever used us as much for His work during any other month as He has during this last month.

Today we had a great time at church. We had a bigger attendance than for any other Sunday for at least the last three years – even with some of the regulars gone. It was wonderful to see so many new faces and some returning who have been out of church for so long, without any special promotion or big event. God is good.

These last few months I’ve felt that God is moving here. He’s doing something big and mighty. I don’t know exactly what it is, yet, but His hand is moving. Seeing a glimpse of it at church this morning was encouraging beyond description.
