Atheist.

Posted: August 2, 2010 in Uncategorized

So tonight at the end of small group, while our group discussion it turns out one of the kids that attended is actually an atheist. It’s funny because as soon as he admitted it to our group, you could feel the awkwardness that that stereotype caused. You can’t really argue with them that their beliefs are wrong or anything, because it’s insulting and could turn them away from Christianity in the future.

I didn’t really see it as a big deal. But as I was on my way home, I began thinking about that person more and more. I prayed for God to pull this person closer to Him and for this kid to continue coming to group and to see that God is in fact real. This same small group saved my life a few years ago, I’d love to see it have such an impact on this persons life as well.

I was kind of in their shoes, when I first started going to group. I wasn’t believing in God (I’m not sure if that makes me an atheist or not, if you know please tell me cause I’d appreciate it a lot) and I was pretty lost. I saw this kid as lost too. My heart was so heavy listening to this kid talk. Him publicly rejecting God to a group of Christians and having no shame for it. I always heard stories about people doing it, yet I had never witnessed it first hand. It shocked me actually.

But now it’s time for us to do our part. The same God that saved me can save this kid. I believe it. Do you?
