Did you notice a theme there?  You should.  We should praise the Lord.
I know, you think your church is the greatest church on earth.  Well, if you are saved, you are a part of the body of Christ. As a member of the body of Christ, you are a member of the greatest church.  However, I am convinced our local church is the best local church around. I know, you disagree.  You are entitled to be wrong.
Tonight's church service was one of those services.  I don't want to say it was a service where the Holy Spirit moved in or took over -- the Spirit of God is always in control at our church.  It was, however, a different service.  People started praising God for His grace, mercy and salvation.  As the testimonies continued, Preacher interrupted to ensure everyone knew the alter was open. It was clear that God was helping people and people were praising God for the help He was giving.
I am glad I am in a church where the Spirit of God is real and welcome.
