What are you doing here?

I was in town late one evening and I met someone who I know who was on her way to a night out. She walked towards me with a shocked look on her face and said ‘what are you doing here?’

I have a friend who heard God speak to her at a One Direction conference and many Christians might wonder what God might be doing at a One Direction concert.

What you have got planned for this evening.
Are you going out or having an evening in?

Whichever it is, what is your expectation of God?

Do we expect to encounter God outside of Sundays, in the real world?

There is a group of people meeting at Orchard Baptist tonight to play table tennis. I wonder what their expectation of God is? Do you they expect God to be as present tonight as he will be on a Sunday morning? I certainly hope so!

God, may we become more aware of your presence in the everyday and when we get a glimpse of you, may we say ‘It’s good to see you’ rather than ‘what are you doing here’.

    It is amazing what God can do in and through us if we allow Him to be a part of a daily life outside of church. He shows up in so many different ways. His presence is always there with us. Thanks for sharing.
