stories of life change

I talked to a friend yesterday from a CrossPoint church here in our area.  He told me about a lady and her kids who came to their church after someone assisted them.  While there the kids had a rough time, but someone volunteered to help, stepped in to care for her child.  A few minutes later the lady accepted Jesus.
 
Not many weeks ago we had something similar happen as one of our ladies connected with a family due to our Angel Tree outreach.  This precious lady cares for 3 of her grandchildren.  She asked Jesus into her life a couple weeks ago after being with us several Sundays.
 
That is just two stories about how God is changing lives.  What is most exciting to me about these and other stories like them is that God is using relationships people build to win others to himself.  Are we connecting with people so God can use us to lead others to himself?
 
Matthew 5:16 (nasb) --- Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
 
We are looking forward to a special guest this Sunday at The Community.  Mike and Marsha Edens and their little boy Isaac will be with us.  Their story will big time bless you and remind you that God wants to touch your life and is concerned about everything that touches you, his child.  Take a look at Isaac's website and come see us Sunday 10:10 a.m. if you are close by.
 
Share stories of life change.  Let God get the glory and tell the stories of what He is doing and wants to do in others.
 
In a phone conversation with another friend this morning who is partnering with our church I heard how life change is happening through Samaritan's Feet.  Click here to see what they are about.
 
We must be about the things that really do matter.  Take sometime this weekend to be involved in and to share stories of life change.  God is at work!
 
Colossians 1:6 (nlt) --- This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God's wonderful grace.
