Tonight was AWESOME.
My friend and I got the privilege to sit and listen to Steve Wilburn talk about proclaiming the good news, and it was really just.. dang. This friend, Ashley, she’s someone who I’ve gone to church with before, but I never really knew if she loved God truly, wholly or where she stood with Jesus. After the service, though, God really showed me her heart. We hung out at the church’s cafe and just got into it. We talked about evolution, and homosexuality, and wanderers, and just how difficult it can be to preach. That was the first time I had ever actually sat down with someone who struggles with the same things I do and who’s curious about the same things I am. And as if that wasn’t enough, our friend David comes up out of nowhere and just starts talking about the first few chapters of Genesis, and all of this theology talk is just swirling around and it was the best thing to be caught up in. And God showed me tonight that this is what I should be living. He meant for me to be hanging out with people who want to explore Christ, and who want to preach, and who want to study theology. It felt so indescribably incredible.
..ah, guys. God. Is. Great.
