They remind me that God speaks the same truths to all of us. They also remind me of the diversity in the family of God because He speaks His truth in ways we can best hear it.
Recently, on Bible Love Notes Facebook wall, I asked: "I'm curious....how did you come to know the Lord?"
About 100 people left comments, and, as I expected, the majority attributed their conversion to a person, especially family members, friends, and Sunday school teachers. Moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents, sons, daughters, and even ex-husbands made the list.
Sermons, church camp, revivals, baptisms, hardships, television programs, funerals, and youth groups were mentioned, but I imagine even these events were preceded by the prayers and witness of human beings.
God can use any means to reach us. After all, He once spoke through a donkey (Numbers 22:21-35).
But God most often uses people. When was the last time you told someone your Jesus story?
