This Is Amazing Grace!
morning a man named Joe ventured back into my office area. Joe has been a
regular at AA meetings since Nature Coast started hosting a few years ago.
Joe asked me if I could set up a time with him and talk to him about who
Joe went on to say that he, in his words, has been ‘watching out of the corner of
his eye’ Nature Coast church and our folks as he is regularly around (even
daily) to attend meetings. Everywhere he looked and listened people at Nature
Coast were always talking about Jesus. This included Nature Coast folks who
regularly attend the same meetings he attends. He went on to say he is finding
Jesus very attractive in the lives of those he is encountering and he wants to
know more about Jesus.
you can imagine this thrills my heart not only for Joe, but for the grace of
Christ that allows me to minister with a church that visibly makes the love of
Christ and the person of Jesus attractive. What an encouragement to Nature
Coast and an encouragement that all of your conversations with whomever you may
meet when you walk in our facility on a daily basis are shining Christ and
having an impact in the lives of folks that you may not even know by name.
for Joe. Pray for me as I meet with him. It will probably be next week as he
had commitments to get his wife to treatments the next couple of days. Pray for
his wife (I will know more, but I’m assuming she is in a battle with cancer).
is Amazing Grace!
