In other news, the Bible study I'm a part of is doing an awesome study called The Tangible Kingdom. The main focus of the book this study is based on is the concept of meeting people where they're at, rather than expecting them to find their own way to the church body. We've talked about the fact that while it's a very simple concept, it's hard to put into practice. To put yourself in uncomfortable situations can be inconvenient, messy, and hurtful. This is what we're called to do, though - to love others...and to follow God's leading without question. It is important not only to remember this, but also to remember that we are not alone in our walk - God and the entire body of Christ are working alongside us. So, step out of your box! Call that person who's been on your mind, stop and chat with that homeless person, simply be there for that friend in need (though it doesn't really fit into your schedule). God will show up...especially when we're not expecting Him to...be ready.
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend and your week is off to a great start!
