An Unforgettable Account

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

I’ll never forget the first time that I read Jackson Roddy’s account of how he came to understand the grace of God; it impressed on me a different “evangelism” than the salesmanship training that I had been exposed to in my early years.

So thrilled was I, those many years ago, to read those words from Jackson Roddy, that I have regularly recalled and reread them, even to this day. During these passing years I would also come to a clearer and clearer understanding of what the gospel was (the true “evangel”), and how far-reaching God’s plan for His creation went – that He may be “All in all” (I Corinthians 15:28).

The truth is that we’re not trying to get anyone to do anything. God already has done it all. True evangelism is simply living and sharing all that God has done. God uses His own work in Christ to activate His called. How simple to be merely a channel of God’s goodness and grace. This is not a process of some decisional regeneration, but of God graciously granting faith by the hearing of His Word (Romans 10:17).
