But more importantly, God spoke to me while there. On Friday afternoon, during the last service of the Timothy Barnabas Pastor’s Conference at Miramonte Baptist Church, God clearly spoke into my heart. The message that was preached by Steve Flockhart was about the Great Commission. His text was Romans 9:1-3. I have preached this text before and as I was reading it to myself before he began his message, I felt the Lord’s Spirit nudge me and in my heart I said, “God, give me a new response to the Gospel.”
I gave my heart to Jesus on April 29, 1984 when I was 11 years old. Over the last 26 years as a Christian I have been nudged, even moved time and time again by God’s Word and Holy Spirit. In 1996, after being out of the will of God, I fully surrendered my life to Him and His will. So, for almost 15 years now I have been learning how to be obedient to His call upon my life.
