I’ve run in to two or three of different friends in the past several months who I used to attend church with (way back in the day when I did attend church). Each of them has told me a lot about their church, their pastors, their amazing programs, their new way of doing things (that still sound suspiciously like the old way of doing things to me, but who am I to judge?), their bible studies, etc. Little do they know that hearing all of that makes me happier than ever that I don’t attend church anymore.
I have to say, if one of them would tell me with the same amount of excitement about Jesus being there whenever they met up together, and how His presence is the sweetest thing, I would be there the next time they met up, no lie.
