Gotta Share This!

With four boys playing football, all of my spare time is being spent at football games. That's okay...I do like football and I do enjoy talking to people at games. Saturday at the end of the Seth's game, a lady I did not know walked up to me and asked, "Are you the pastor at Grace Bible Church?" 

Now, I've been a pastor for over twenty years and I can tell you that sounds like an innocent question (and most of the time it is), but there have been a few times that question has led to some interesting conversations so forgive me if I'm a little mentally gun-shy. But God was good, I smiled and said, "Yes." She put out her hand to shake mine and a huge smile came across her face. She said, "I need to tell you something. My sister started attending Grace several months ago. She is a different person! Her attitude and life has changed! I want you to know that whatever is going on Grace has made a big difference in my sister's life. Thank you."

Wow! I can't tell you how excited and humbled it made me feel when she shared this with me. Our mission at Grace is to love, follow and share Jesus. When we do this God allows us to join Him as He changes someone's sister's life. Wow! It was the highlight of my morning. 

I had to share this with you. You need to know how God is using you to help people experience a changed life. Don't stop. Don't grow easily discouraged. Keep up the good work. I think this person is one of the firsts of hundreds to come. We will bring joy to people as we make ourselves available to Him.
