I love how soul winning works.  In our Sunday service we had at least 20 brand new people.  We gave five people baptismal certificates from the park outreach and the downtown block party at SWBC.  We asked for others to stand that had been baptized at either event and 10 people stood up.  We will have certificates for them next week.  Also, in service was a man named John who no one knew how he came to be there…when asked, he said he knew some of the people who had been baptized and they had invited him to church.  I took care of his little 12 month old baby during Bible Class.  Her name is Tammy and she was such a little doll.  Brenda Pinsonault took care of her during the main service.  There was several others in service just like John.  They had been invited by the new ones who had just been baptized and received the Holy Ghost.  God is at work in these last days and I just want to jump right in the middle of it and be used wherever and whenever I can.  If that means spending the Bible hour in the nursery so a baby’s dad can receive something from the word without distraction, then that’s where I want to be.  If it means taking someone to get a hamburger and coke, giving someone a Bible Study on one of my “off” nights, etc. then that is where I want to be.  There is an old song that says, “Jesus Use Me.  Oh Lord, please don’t refuse me.  Surely there’s a work that I can do.  Even though it’s humble, Lord help my will to crumble.  Though the cost be great I’ll work for you.”  That has never been one of my favorite songs but the words seemed to strike a chord with me this weekend.  It doesn’t matter, just let me be part of what God is doing.  There are so many areas in the work of God that need to be filled.  There is a place for everyone!

How will the Lord use my life the rest of this year?  Next year?  This month?  Today?  Is there one thing I can do to make life better for someone else?  Can I warm the home of an elderly friend?  Chill out so a teenager can open up to my love and concern?  Knock on the door of a single mom?  The possibilities are endless.  God expects us to use our brains and figure out what we can do to make a difference.  Jesus Use Me, wherever YOU see fit.
