This video reminds me of the power and value in sharing boldly.
When Evelyn and her sister joined South Bay Church, I was privileged to co-lead their first two Life Groups. We not only studied the basics of the Christian faith, but helped one another to actively embrace what the faith-based life was all about.
Witnessing Evelyn’s journey vividly reminds me of my early days in learning what it means to follow a guy named Jesus. The concept of loving others and forgiving those that wronged us radically transformed who I was. My core values changed. My daily habits changed. The reasons why I share life with people changed.
Several amazing individuals made this possible for me with their mentorship and fellowship. They taught me to stay focused on advancing the Kingdom of God. Everything good they conveyed to me, I did my best to share with Evelyn and her sister.
We live in a broken world with many struggles, but we all can be part of the solution. Yes, even those of us who don’t think much of ourselves. If anyone knows a little about my past, he or she can appreciate and recognize that God uses broken people to accomplish miracles. I thank God for giving me the opportunities to see His love spread. And I am super excited for Evelyn, her family and friends – may they share His light and empower others to know Him.
