Biter Sheep
Dear friends of the blogosphere.......anyone else notice when God brings people into your life, (unbelievers and make-believers) AND THEN He brings up His Gospel....if you dare to ''go there" with them and are unashamed of the Christ ~ God gives you a fresh sense of the preciousness of what He was really up to at Calvary??
Nothing sweeter to remind us that WE desperately need Jesus.........

He's been so kind with putting lost sheep in my path. Three that I would appreciate prayer for.

Ty - I've known him for 11 years, he's like a brother to me and knew me well - before I was saved and now....he knows that I'm different, but hasn't a clue what is the cause, he doesn't believe that there is a God because his "truth" is obtained via the discovery channel. (everything on the discovery channel is "fact" you know......sigh......sarcasm)
He's been mocking me more now lately than ever........Oh, I hope and pray that his mocking and other sins are forgiven and not stored up as wrath against him! I love him very much.

Jim - a middle aged, post modern mentality type - new client of mine who has too much money, and heard much about God's wrath the other day in my office. For the better part of a 2 hour meeting. He's going to be receiving the book "Jesus among other gods" by Raavi Z from me in the coming week or so......he's excited to read it and has a sense of sobriety about God's justice now that will hopefully help him see himself in truth. Praise the Lord, I didn't get fired for saying the things I him and other clients~

Tracy - a waitress who is in the 3rd step of the AA meetings. She's been sober for 7 months and God brought her to Allison, Jamie and I Saturday night at a restaurant in St Paul. (get this, she wasn't even our server - she just walked right up and started sharing her life story with us!!)
Ps - for those unfamiliar with the AA Big Book - the third step is the first one that involves the "higher power" - unbelievable.
We didn't get to share Christ with her there, but Jamie exchanged numbers with her and Tracy has already text messaged her. Please pray that we would get to spend time with her and love her with grace and truth.

All this for the King !!

"Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness"

Eph 2:1-10
"And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience-- among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved-- and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them."

Destined toward wrath - but mercifully turned around.......
