She was saved by shoplifting.
When she told me her story, I was intrigued.
You see, when the Christian store owner caught her shoplifting, he gave her two choices: Bible study or arrest.
She naturally chose Bible study, and it changed her life.
Getting caught was the best thing that ever happened to her. And the merciful store owner not only led her to the Lord but later became her employer.
That's salvation--it catches us red-handed in our sins and gives us a choice: pay the penalty of eternal death or take our place in the employ of our merciful Savior, taking up His cross and following Him.
And those of us who choose to follow Christ, are not only saved, we're changed! Knowing Christ makes us do things we never thought we could do and be a person we never thought we could be.
It's the best thing that ever happens to us!
Can I get an "Amen"?
