WHAT DOES GOD FEEL LIKE TO YOU
Back in 1963 when my family first came into the Church of God, the thing that
sticks out in my mind is the spirituality of the services. There was no such thing
as a quiet service. We prayed loud. We sang loud. The preacher was loud. And
yet, its not the volume of the services that got my attention, it was the moving
of the Holy Spirit. When God began to move, He had my attention.
One thing I remember with great fondness is the prayer lines. That was
where there would be two lines of saints facing each other, and anyone who
had a need would go through this gauntlet of praying people.
During one of these services, my mother could not find me or my brother.
Thinking we were somewhere in the sanctuary, she scanned the crowd. As she
looked towards the line of people waiting to go through the prayer line, she
noticed a gap. Thats right; we were in the prayer line at ages four and six.
When mama asked what we were doing in line, my brother answered,
Mama, it feels like cool water running all over me. If a four year old can sense
the presence and power of God, so should we. All it takes is child-like faith, and
a willingness to get under the spout where the glory comes out. I wonder how
God will feel to you, when you do.
Blessings, Pastor and Sister Nolan

Alexander the Great is reported as


saying, Were I not the son of a
king, I would not care what
company I kept; but being the son
of a king, I must employ myself in
such company as is suitable to my
birth and breeding. As a child of
the King of Kings, can we do any
less?

Pastor Jonathons Word of The Week


THE TASK AT HAND
The most important part of our task will be to tell
everyone who will listen that Jesus is the only answer to
the problems that are disturbing the hearts of [people]
and nations.
We shall have the right to speak because we can tell
from experience that his light is more than the deepest
darkness How wonderful that the reality of his
presence is greater than the reality of the hell about us.
------ Betsie ten Boom
