Searching for God
After Easter
Easter is always an exciting time with lots of people but it is the post Easter folks that have a measure of commitment.  This past Sunday we saw lots of new people in church again.  As I walked around after church trying to meet some of those I did not recognize I ran into a young lady who told me it was her first time at Sunlight. She said she had lived in this community for a long time but that she "was not very religious".  She went on to say that she was coming to find out more about it.  I welcomed her and I encouraged her that our church was a safe place that she could find out more about who God was.
It was a simple and brief conversation but hearing those words from her makes my heart sing!  This is what we are all about.  God has given us a mission to make disciples of all nations.  Every time I hear that someone who is not following Christ comes to find out more about what it means to be a Christian I just have a little party in my brain! I believe that this young lady and her family will come to know and follow Jesus.  Not because of Sunlight but because the Holy Spirit is at work in their lives.  God is calling them to follow His Son.  God's call, His grace through Christ is irresistable!  We will talk more about the power and the work of the Holy Spirit as we celebrate Pentecost and the coming of the Spirit this Sunday.  - Pastor Kris
