QUOTE OF THE DAY: “IF GOD CAN SAVE ONE, HE CAN SAVE OTHERS”
ANCHOR TEXT: “But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ” Philippians 3:7.
God is a God of second chance and a God of change. He can use anything to achieve His own purpose. He reserves that prerogative. It is an unfair judgment to condemn or write fellow humans off if God has not done so. Probably while the person was misbehaving, it could be that God was still working on him/her. Who could have imagined that Saul of all people could become Paul? This is a man who derived joy in working contrary to the purpose of God by arresting and persecuting the apostles. He helped the people that stoned Stephen to death to keep their coats. ‘…He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus so that if he found any there who belonged to the way, he might take them as prisoners’ (Acts 9:1-2). At last he became an apostle of the Gospel. Another character was Rahab, a stigmatized prostitute who became a heroine of faith. Who knew that Moses, a murderer could be changed into a leader? What about Dr. Ben Carson, who was almost written off as a dullard because of his poor performance in class when he was at the lower grade.
Surprisingly, he became an acclaimed and award winning pediatric neurosurgeon. God owns everyone’s heart and life. It may take some time, it may be faster or sooner than you expect.
