>Our First

Posted: May 2, 2010 in Uncategorized

>I finally happened. We have evidence of someone becoming a follower of Jesus Christ as a result of our ministry. The first full day of Ice Cream and Answers a group of girls came by and asked me about boyfriend and their issues. This was my first advice-giving conversation. Over the next month these girls came back on several occasions to talk. We talked about Jesus a few times. Today, one of those girls came to Ice Cream and Answers. She had been going to church with a friend (someone I did not know but we had a mutual friend) for about two months. She indicated from our conversation that she was on her way to becoming a believer but wasn’t quite there yet. We talked and I discovered that she really was a believer, but was just under the misconception that there were things she had to do before become a follower of Jesus. I told her of Galatians 2:16 “know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ” and that if she trusted Jesus she was a follower of Christ already. We talked more and she indicated through a testimony that she was indeed a believer. We were very excited. She shared how over the past two months Christ had been changing her; she didn’t like behaviors she was involved in and was not loving the Word of God and worshipping with the church. What a wonderful testimony!!! So, even though she isn’t going to sojourn and we will not baptize her, we are excited that we’ve been a part of the work of God expanding His Kingdom and reconciling the world to Himself. Awesome!
