I wondered why he would visit my Christian site with such anger. I've never visited an atheist site and called them fools even though the Bible does (Psalm 14:1).
But God used this atheist to do His work, to remind me of my sins.
You see, his rude comment didn't merely make me offended for God, it personally offended my ego.
Some not-so-nice responses went through my head and slipped out of my mouth.
I asked God to help me deal with my ugly pride, and I smiled at the irony that this atheist was helping conform me to the image of the God he denied.
I once heard it said that everyone has a purpose in life, even if it's merely to serve as a bad example.
Isn't it a blessing to see God use unlikely circumstances for our good (Romans 8:28)?
