Earning the Right to be Heard

A husband and wife, volunteer firefighters with me, made it abundantly clear that they do not agree with what I believe, nor do they care for “religion,” but because God is working on them, they asked if they could attend a service just so they can hear me preach. It is great to see that as we “love the people,” God opens the door for us to “preach the Word.”  I can hardly wait for next Sunday!

God Answers Prayer

God answered a specific request that I had made two weeks before. It had been awhile since I had the privilege, joy, and excitement of leading someone to the Lord. God allowed me to cross paths with some roofers I had encounterd earlier in the week.  

 

Mark approached me and we started talking. He wanted to apologize for using “contractor language” on the top of a roof that we worked on together (I had just showed up at Shawn’s house to haul off the debris but stayed and worked for about 5 hours). He did not know that I was a “man of God.” He felt he had been set up by the other guys because they both knew but did not tell him (Not that their native tongue changed). Mark wanted me to know he meant no disrespect. Next thing I know, after affirming that I was not “disrespected,” Mark made it clear that he wanted to be a “man of God.” So, I was happy to tell him!  If it could only be this easy every time!!  

 

Oh wait…maybe it is. On Sunday a guy name Rick that I have been praying for showed up to the service with his 3rd-grade daughter. Rick and I later that day did a snow run (In a 4×4) up a local mountain. The hour drive home provided another answer to my prayers! Both Mark and Rick now know the way. May God by His great mercy and grace continue to work in these guys, conforming them to the image of His wonderful Son. Praise be to our awesome God!
