This Week at Twin Cities - May 27, 2010

Hey everybody, If you were in our 11:15 service last Sunday, you were part of a divine moment. A baby cried. Not just any cry, but a loud “I just woke up, and I’m not happy” cry. It came just as we were about to eat the bread and drink the juice during communion. The mom was cognizant of the moment and quickly gathered her crying baby and headed to the lobby.

God reminded me of something He has been doing in me. He’s been asking me to look at people, not as they are now, but as they were when they were babies. Babies are beautiful, cute, and innocent. I mentioned that and that there were those in the room who were struggling and wondering if God could really love them the way I had talked about from John 3:16. And I reminded them that Jesus had made it possible, through the cross, to be born again – to have their innocence restored.

I received this email later: “I wanted you to know of the God moment I experienced today in the 11:15 service. As I sat there, I decided to ask God in my head for direction. I didn't have the right words, but I simply asked, "What do I do? What do I do?" Not one minute later you spoke up about being moved by the innocence of the baby's cry in the congregation. How you were sad for people who had been wronged and had their innocence taken away at a young age. That God makes us clean again so that we can be like that baby. I swear at that very moment God was talking directly at me through you! I instantly knew it was God saying that He loves me. Thanks for being moved by the Holy Spirit enough to speak those words aloud. God has truly given me great miracles, but the most life transforming: being forgiven and learning to forgive. It has been a hard pill for me to swallow, but God is good and gracious!”

Isn't God great? He may have just pinched that baby so this person could experience His love. You never know what’s going to happen on Sunday! Make sure to be here.
