Blogs are not supposed to be am evangelistic tool, but if it works,,,
I Posted a story about M. and B. It was about the blind leading the blind. M. finally found my blog and read the story. His first reaction was that he could really help those two guys, then he realized he was the M. referred to.
Something clicked. He called this morning and asked, “What do I need to do to be Baptized?” He told me he realized his life was a mess and he believed Jesus could straighten it out. I was floored, and thankful. This has been a two year process, with more ups and down than the roller coaster at Knoebel’s grove. Tragedy averted. We will spend some time together this coming week in conversation, I need to be sure he has understanding, but I think his old, dead, heart has been quickened by the Holy Spirit. Praise God! This man has a story that would make a good movie, and the best is yet to come.
I have read many stories where a preacher would preach a powerful sermon, and someone would run down the aisle and give their lives to Christ. I have never personally experienced it, it could be my preaching is just not that inspirational. I rejoice that I have seen people, over time, finally come to repentance and belief. I am just finishing a book Zondervan sent me, “Flickering Pixels”, the author opines that today people’s salvation process not like a light switch , on and off, but like a dimmer switch, slowly ramping up to the light. I want to believe that. It would make me feel good about my preaching, for one thing, and give me hope for the glow of light I believe I am seeing in some at Dayspring. We are up to 6 or 7 in our spring Baptism class, with a few more wanting to talk about it. Not bad for a group of 50 or so.
Thanks for your prayers, and don’t forget B. There is much work to be done in our area, the Field is as white for the harvest.
