What a Day!

Yesterday was a banner day in the life of Cedar Creek. I am still excited and thrilled about how the Lord moved among us. At the conclusion of the second service, 23 people “crossed the line”, declaring their desire to be completely committed followers of Jesus (rededications, transfers, and a couple of soon-to-take-place baptisms). Praise the Lord! There were many tears, cheers, hugs, and prayers. What a day! I learned later that many others stepped over that sideline (after both services), doing business in their hearts with the Lord: some as couples, others as individuals. I believe the Lord is calling all of us to examine our hearts. Are we fans or followers?
This next Sunday, we will dig into God’s Word once again. The message is Choosing Intimacy. The focus is on knowing God, not simply knowing about God, with an emphasis on the heart of the Father towards His children. If you want to read ahead, we will be using the parable of the Prodigal Son, found in Luke 15:11-32.
