It's SONday! If you know me in real life, or are a regular reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL), you'll know that I go to worship service, each Sunday.
Today, was no different, except for the fact that I didn't worship at my church. Instead, I worshipped at a church where a friend of mine worships. Rose City Community Church, here in Windsor.
Arriving a few minutes early for their worship service, I joined those who were enjoying coffee time on the lower level of the church.
It's here that I met up with my friend, C. And, reacquainted myself with her pastor, G who I had met on a previous occasion.
This was my first time worshipping at this small church.
A few people commented that there were not as many people in attendance, as normal. Well, it is summertime afterall, so it didn't surprise me to hear that some people were away on vacation.
Still, it was a nice group who met up to worship our God!
The service was a little different than what I am used to, but I truly enjoyed it. It did my heart good to see that Pastor G asked people to come forward, if they wanted prayer for themselves. Some did.
It was heartwarming to see that before sermon time, they had a time of thanksgiving. People stood up and told of their thankfulness. Including, me!
Pastor G spoke about needed to be born-again. Amen!
Ahh... a topic close to my own heart! Anyone who's read LwL for any length of time will know that I mention this, regularly.
After all, everyone who is born on this earth is only born into humanity. And, not automatically saved by God.
Nope. Many people don't understand that when we are born, we are born dead. Spiritually, dead.
It's only when we trust in Jesus Christ, that we are made alive. That's how we become born-again!
Although some people are confused with the idea that we are born dead, it is the truth. Ephesians 2:1 tells us, "And you has he made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins:"
It's not a case that we are alive and die if we don't do something.
We are literally physically born, spiritually dead. We are headed to spend eternity in hell, unless we come to a saving relationship by trusting on our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Once we do this, we've been saved from a future in hell, with no escape. Instead, we'll spend eternity in heaven, with God!
Afterwards, I spoke with my friend and several other people. And, I even met and shook hands with a Facebook (FB) friend of mine, who I had never met in real life, until today.
Wow! Talk about a friendly bunch! I was happy I had decided to worship there, today. I feel blessed!
Until next time...
