Hebrews 9:11-15, 24-28

Mike, overwhelmed with life, sat one day with a gun in his mouth and plans to end his pain. Suddenly, the phone rang. It was a man who had misdialed by one number and Mike answered the phone. Sensing something was wrong the man talked to him and listened to his pain. He invited him to come to a place where he would receive love. The next day Mike came to church and afterwards we met. I invited Mike to lunch and through tears he shared the story of the brokenness of his life. Sensing the Holy Spirit’s urging, I said, “Mike, would you like to receive God’s unconditional love?” Through tears he said, “Yes!” In a moment he found grace, restoration, and hope.

Our day is often filled with inconveniences or possibilities. We can see people as problems or possible blessings. We, who have been restored, can be agents of restoration. Choose to listen to the Holy Spirit throughout your day and see what ways He will use you to bring redemption and hope to those who need it most.
