Advertisers know the best way to sell a product, whether it's a diet plan, exercise equipment, a medication - have someone who's living proof of their product's effectiveness tell their story. For 2,000 years, that's what has motivated people to pursue the most important thing in life - a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It's what will interest the people you know in Jesus - if you'll tell them your story.

It can happen when things suddenly change financially for you, or occupationally, or medically.

And that might be exactly what you need to be praying for right now. Actually, “crying out to the Lord for,” as Moses did. That’s not just a casual, trite little prayer. That’s a desperate cry to God for something so hard that only He can do it. Right now, you may be thinking of someone in your personal world who is bitter. There’s resentment, sarcasm, cynicism, anger, maybe unforgiveness. The good news is that God is the world’s leading Heart Surgeon – He can change a heart in ways that no human could ever dream. But you need to be faithfully, fervently praying for God to do whatever it takes to change the heart of that bitter person. Especially if that bitter person is you.

Proverbs 3:5-6 - it might be your favorite - "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Notice what's the opposite of trusting in the Lord with all your own heart--trying to figure it out for yourself, doing what you think is best...leaning on your own understanding.

Sometimes you just can't get where you need to go if you try to do it the way you've always done it. Not just when you're trying to reach remote villages in Alaska - but also when you're trying to reach people in your world for Jesus Christ! If you insist on doing it the way you've always done that, you'll never get to where they are - and they will go on dying spiritually.

Now it wasn't quite a class reunion for Saul of Tarsus, the violent persecutor of the early Christians. But there were some people who knew what he was like who were in for a major surprise. Our word for today from the Word of God begins with Acts 9:26. Now, on his way to arrest more Christians, Saul has encountered the living Christ on the road, and he's surrendered his life to the very one he had so violently opposed. Now the Christians back in Jerusalem hear that Saul is back in town--and they're not very excited about have the old "hit man" around.
