Pastor: “You Changed My Life”

I was invited to speak at three different church fellowships in another city.    A year later I was invited back. A pastor from yet another church approached me.  I was astounded by his words:

“I want to thank you.  Last year I heard you speak and it changed my life.”

“Oh?  How so?”

“I had never considered going out and sharing my faith as you do.  After hearing your message, I invited some of our people to do the same.  We went to a park, set up a table and began giving out free Bibles and tracts. People would stop to talk and ask for prayer. It has strengthened my faith and the faith of our church. Peoples’ lives have been changed and our new ministry has brought great joy.

Wow! What can be more humbling, coming from a pastor! Humbling for him and even more humbling for me.  I am nothing on my own.  I am simply a follower of Christ trying to be obedient.  How grateful I am to God that He would use me to impact another in this way.

  •  In everything set them an example by doing what is good.  In your teaching show integrity, seriousness.  Titus 2:7 
  • Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.   Matthew 28:19

This life is temporary. This life is short.  When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever.  Where will the “real you” live?  Will you live for all eternity separated from God?  Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?   Learn more so you can make your most important decision:   http://www.godlife.com/gospel/  and  http://www.godlife.com/en/about-christianity

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.
