There was this girl named Kim. She could out drink, out curse, and out fight most men. She was extremely bold and an “in your face” kind of person. She never held back, she always told you exactly what she was thinking. Her words were always seasoned with expletives that would make a marine blush. She drank like a fish, did drugs and lived with her boyfriend.
Then something happened…one day she came in to the grocery store where we worked together, and shared that she had gotten saved. She was a totally different person. I didn’t know these words back then, but she had a life changing, born again experience. Her attitude changed, her demeanor changed, and her language changed, it was a complete 180 degree change all around! I remember thinking that it would not last long. But it did! Her boyfriend accepted Christ too and they were married a few weeks later. Her life, her testimony, her story were the first steps in getting my attention.
I was saved less than a year after Kim’s conversion. Something happened to me as well. One life can impact another. I encourage you to share your story. I challenge you to be bold (not obnoxious) and tell what God has done in your life.
This Sunday, I will be sharing my story in both services at New Season. I will celebrate 27 years of knowing Christ and being a Christian this Saturday, July 28th. I have never gotten over it!
Your story can impact others. Let me beg you to do everything you can to get your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc… to come to church with you this Sunday. Facebook them, tweet, email, call, do whatever it takes to invite and get them here!
Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.” Notice that it is according to the power that works in us. God has invited us to be in partnership with Him. Let’s do our part and watch God do His! 9:30 or 11:15 am on Sunday at New Season…be here and bring as many people as you can with you. Let’s impact a life!
