The Body of Christ

God is truly incredible and I can't say that enough!  I love Sundays because I enjoy going to church and worshiping the Lord as a body and hearing a message about the Lord!  Today was no exception.  Worship today was so great!  The songs were moving and on top of that my pastor spoke a wonderful sermon today on focusing on the end times.  I would really suggest listening to the sermon at http://www.christianfellowship.com/resources/sermons/ when it gets up!  It really changes your way of thinking!  But also something exciting today my family and I went up to Anchorfest to see the Sidewalk Prophets concert!  They are a really remarkable band!  However it wasn't just the music that captivated me...

I couldn't help but smile as I sat there at the concert even though I didn't know the first thing about any of the people around me, nothing about their past, present or future.  There were so many different types of people there.  People who in this "average American society" wouldn't normally associate with each other but we were all there.  We were all at a christian concert worshiping the same God.  You go to country, rap, blues, etc. concerts and you typically see country people at the country concert and so on.  But it wasn't this way here we were all here for God, the one and only God.  We all love Him and He loves us!  All of us!  It is truly amazing!  Young and old, rich and poor, fat and thin.  My God, the God loves each and everyone of us the same and even though we may not appear to have the slightest thing in common; in reality we have the greatest thing in common!  We love The Lord!

What made this whole experience even more interesting was that I did know one of the people that surrounded me.  I actually knew a little bit about this persons past which was honestly a little rocky (but whose isn't).  We all have struggles, addictions, etc. that lead us down the wrong paths in life but when like this person you turn toward the Lord none of that seems to matter anymore.  It makes me smile so big when I see people like this that have felt the Lord and thirst for Him!  So much that they would come out and listen to a Christian band play!  I love to see people grow in the Lord and turn away from the sins of the past and head towards Him, growing the body of Christ!  Especially when this person has young kids and you just know now the kids can really grow up getting to know and love our same Lord!

I pray for this particular person and the children along with all those others that were there today and those of you reading this that each and every person will just grow closer and closer to the Lord!  I know God has amazing plans for each and every person!  He loves us all more than we can even fathom!  How great is that!
