The Ultimate Kingdom
It was late one Friday afternoon in July of 1977, I was training my youth group in personal evangelism.
It was 106 degrees in Tulsa, Oklahoma, so hot the pavement was soft underfoot.
We were in a big air-conditioned church van, with one house left.
I jumped out, knocked and put a tract in the door, and turned to go back into the van when the door opened.
It was the saddest, poorest, most hopeless place I’d ever visited. One look and I knew they weren’t interested.
As the shirtless man listened the woman turned her back
Then I saw her shoulders shake. She finally turned and said Donnie was leaving me and the four children today when you knocked.
God sent you
I knelt in the eggshells and chicken bones on the floor, they both wept and cried out to the Lord for forgiveness and salvation.
On Sunday they showed up at church, came forward at the end of the service, were baptized in the PM service, and married the next Saturday.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
