Worth a read…

I just want to tell you that God is abundantly good. In the past few weeks my eyes have really been opening to the things of the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. It's like I'm really starting to touch the supernatural stuff the Bible speaks of. And I can testify it comes when you start thinking about more than yourself. Last night at church the pastors felt it a good idea not to follow the usual program, and after the worship, they just left the service for God to work.

This past Saturday I went to a gothic/underground club to watch a band containing some of my friends. I realized I could not go there just for fun and I had to be there for Jesus. My girlfriend saw a girl there who she knew, who didn't have a relationship with Jesus Christ. She ministered to her and invited her to our church. Man, it was the best service to have invited her for. She brought her ex-boyfriend along, whom I also know. After the worship I knelt down in the front of the church and starting seeking the presence of God. I desperately was seeking Him, not an emotion because unlike The Darkness I know love is "more than a feeling". While I was kneeling I heard God say that I must go and pray for this guy (the ex). I really was at a point where I didn't care what he would think of me and I asked him if I could pray for him. He said yes, and in all sincerity said he'll try not to cry. Like I said, I wasn't feeling much, that is, until I put my hand on his back to pray for him. Suddenly it was like I could feel the pain and sorrow God felt for him and his girl and I just starting crying. I was sobbing so badly that I couldn't finish a sentence. I just knew God was touching them so I stopped talking and turned around. I knew God was doing the work now and I did my part.

God will do wonders if we reach out to others and stop being so selfish. I felt the sorrow God feels for the lost (although I know I am merely tasting a tiny bit of how God really feels) in that club. Jesus Christ loves us so much, really, I can testify. Please pray for this girl and guy, that the Holy Spirit will awaken their consciousnesses and they will seek Jesus for who He really is. Because if you find Him for the right reason, you will never let go.

God bless
