Listen to the Truth of God; Fulfilling God's Desires for Us!
We spend so much time engaged in our own Church, ever wonder what it's like in another denomination? Christian love is there too! Time for some fellowship!
God speaks to us, we just have to Listen.
MOORESVILLE, N.C. - I went to a JV high school football game tonight to watch my son play. It was the big cross-town rivalry and there was a crowd there. It was the first time I've gotten out of the house to watch one of his games due to my current condition (it was the last game of the year). While painful - it was a joy to watch. I couldn't sit in the stands for very long at all, so I took my cane and limped up a few rows to the top of the stadium and decided to stand there against the brick wall; besides it broke the wind on this chilly November night.
I had just gotten on my cell phone to check for any messages or e-mails, when I noticed a presence hovering by me. It was a middle-aged man - about my age; dressed in a hunting jacket with the hood pulled up over his head. I put my phone away and made eye contact, this was what the man was waiting for. He was alone and I was going to be his companion for the rest of the game!
He put me at ease right from the beginning, talking about the game. It eventually led to some more personal talk; and it was here that I found out he was a pastor at a small Christian church in the area, as I revealed I was a parishioner at the local Catholic Church. He spoke about how much he enjoyed helping others and felt so rewarded by being called to serve.
Witness the Truth of the Lord
I could see the joy emanating from him as he spoke about the challenges of being a pastor, the challenges that he loved so very much. It felt good talking about my favorite subject (God) with a kindred spirit in that sense. If felt good sharing, and in his words, "witnessing" to the truth.
Witness the Truth of the Lord
I know we have so much going on within our own Church, along with so many things for all of us to do in helping each other to go forward in fulfilling God's desires for us in his grand scheme. But it was so wonderful to be able to share with a Christian from another denomination. Choosing to look for those things in which we have in common, and to go forward to help each other achieve God's will in the world; even if it is just some words of encouragement and thanks.
I hope to keep in contact with him in the future and become good friends in Christ. Oh yes, I almost forgot - we lost; better luck next year!
