Today, over florentines and coffee, I heard how two of my church friends came to know Jesus.
I love hearing people’s faith stories. They remind me how God uses people – ordinary people like you and me – to share the truth of his grace.
They also remind me that people are complex, and often it takes years and years before ‘the penny drops’ and Jesus becomes real to an individual.
And they provide evidence of the miraculous power of God to work change in the lives of broken people like myself…
Sometimes it can be hard to ‘articulate’ our faith and the evidence for it, but there is so much value in sharing our life experiences. Each journey is unique; each response to God like no other. And each salvation account reveals the awesome glory of the one who welcomes us – the lost, weary and repentant – into his family with open arms.
“So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven…” (Matt 10:32)
“And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.” (1 John 5:11)
