Good Out of Bad

Awesome faith stories yesterday morning at ACC. I love when we baptize people; the stories of how God broke through into their lives are amazing!

??

I noticed a theme; a thread that ran through every story: Major life crisis.

??

Drug abuse. Hard core addiction to pornography. Alcoholism. A nasty divorce. Jail time.

??

Different issues. A wide variety of personal pain.

??

Same result every time: Finding strength and meaning and hope and deliverance in Jesus Christ.

??

God brings good out of bad situations. He takes people who are broken and full of despair and infuses into them healing and joy. At our lowest moments God intervenes.

??

I think of how the disciples must have hit rock bottom as Christ’s battered body was taken down off the cross. Little did they know that miraculous new life was just a few days away.

??

Just when life seems hopeless…

Peace,
