A Taste Of Heaven Yesterday

A lady in our church sent this email to our pastoral team last night.  It filled my heart with joy.

“Wanted to just share something that encouraged me today after the service.  I saw many many small groups of people praying for each other.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen it as clear as I did today. There were groups all throughout the church building—in the sanctuary, and in the lobby.  Sometimes it was two people praying and in other groups there were more.  I was filled with joy because I could just see the love of Christ being poured into peoples’ lives.  It was almost like everywhere I turned I was aware of prayer going on and the Lord being glorified.  What a testimony of the Lord’s work in our midst.”

All glory to God for his wonderful work in our church.  All praise to him for this taste of heaven.  May the love of Christ abound more and more in all our churches!

    That's one of the first things we noticed that was markedly different in our church – people just didn't say they were praying for you, they actually stopped right then and prayed. Sweet, sweet picture of God's goodness to us.

    To echo Elaine's comment – this is one of the major things that drew us to SGC – people doing God's Word daily! Praise God for giving us the strength to obey him.
