We kicked off our new series last night: "Love, Sex, and the Bible." It's a 6 week journey through the Song of Solomon (yep, God's sexy book). We had a ton of people there last night. I was absolutely blown away. A ton of new people. There were a bunch of people that we hadn't seen for a while show up to be part of this series. And then of course: the faithful who have been there from the beginning of what God has been doing on Wednesday nights were there. We went through chapter one which talks about attraction, and how Godly attraction for someone else is not a sin. It's part of the process. However, attraction is not the foundation that we are to build a romantic relationship and marriage relationship on. That attraction should lead to the priority of loving the person's character. An incredible evening. It was so much fun.
At the end, I invited people to surrender their lives to Jesus if they never had. It blew my mind when I saw a hand go up from a young college-aged girl from the front row. It was her first time ever at PFB and she gave her life to Jesus. But here's what hit me when it happened: the whole message had to do with the beginnings of a dating relationship with another person. And with that topic, she gave her life to Jesus. It just proved to me that where the Holy Spirit is, he is calling people into a relationship with God through Christ.
Thank you for praying. It is always amazing to see someone surrender to Jesus.
