Sunday night after church, the New Adults SS Class headed on over to Jason’s Deli for some fellowship. After awhile, three young men came in and sat down near us. I said to my wife, “If I didn’t know any better, I’d think that was Thomas that I met at Sam’s Club last Friday night.” The longer I sat there, the more convinced I became. Finally, I went over to their table and engaged them in conversation. There sat Thomas. Wow! The Lord had made a connection for me again! We talked drag racing and the results of the days events. Thomas shared with me that he had given the tract to John Force, and then I was able to share a tract with the three men. Wow! Awesome God!!
What are my “take-aways” from this continuing saga that has been such a blessing and an encouragement?
- Odds mean nothing to God. He is able to do more than we could ever think! (2 Kings 3:18; 2 Corinthians 9:8; Ephesians 3:20).
- Be soul-conscious everywhere you go. Always be ready to turn every conversation to the Theme of themes. Let the Christ in you speak through you to point someone to Himself, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).
- Have strong faith when you pray because your faith is based upon an omnipotent God (Job 42:2; Psalm 33:6; Matthew 7:7; 21:22).
What opportunities are you pursuing right now to share the Good News? How’s your faith in prayer? Are you soul-conscious? God is able. God is faithful. He knows how to write the story and put the right characters in the right place at the right time!
