Oh man, so we went to visit Liverpool Stoneycroft corps today, which is the church that Gemma and I will be helping to lead in about three weeks.
I was blown away
Have you ever had one of those experiences when you're in church and simply 'know' that God is there? Or when you just know that what is going on around you is nothing other than a God-honouring moment?
This was one of those moments.
It wasn't the size of the church community, it wasn't the sung worship, it wasn't the bible teaching, it was the warmth of the people that got to me. People simply love each other. They love God, they love each other.
Isn't that what this is all about.
Isn't all else secondary?
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind soul, strength and love your neighbour. (Matthew 22)
I certainly haven't cracked this, but I saw a glimpse of another world today. This stuff actually does work.
