If you were in service this past Sunday you heard me share these. These are powerful examples of what God is doing through the ministry of CLC! These came in response to our service on Jan. 13th.
Not even sure how to describe today’s service at CLC other than to say it was as if the entire service was designed for me – from every song that was sung to the message that was preached to the time at the altar. I guess it’s true what they say…God loves a broken heart and he turns it into a new start.
Here’s another one from Tuesday…
I haven’t felt so moved by the Spirit of God as I did Sunday. I started coming out to CLC in August 2012 and immediately felt something different about how things were done there. And with the very first service I was able to cry again after being dead for about 10 years before that. I went up for prayer on Sunday and was able to cry a whole lot more. I was very moved.
Without sounding hokey, I felt love and genuineness I had NEVER felt in my years going to Church the first time I stepped into CLC. I don’t say that to put CLC on a pedestal or anything, but God is certainly working in strong and powerfully mighty ways there. I am so thankful to Him for leading me there. In retrospect, I wish I didn’t spend the first 7 years of my life in PA driving past the building day after day.
This is my personal favorite:
Yesterday, my son-in-law to be brought his younger brother to church. Since January 1st, this kid has been in jail, tried to commit suicide 2 or 3 times as well as a host of other problems too long to list. He sat in awe. He had a tear in his eye at the end of service and said that he would “come back again, probably next week…maybe.”
He said that he didn’t know church could be like that. He never sang, he just tapped his foot and clapped his hand on his leg. During the sermon, he “wondered how the preacher knew so much about him.”
While he never went forward, he is thinking about everything that he experienced yesterday.
That is why we do what we do! The “experts” are saying that the church in America is dying…but if you’ve been to CLC recently you know it just ain’t so! PTL
