The ‘chemistry’ is such that when God mixes with humanity, a reaction takes place. All of us have experienced the effect of a dream, a sentence in a song, a glimpse of another dimension in nature, a rescue from an impossible situation that has changed our attitude, melted our hearts, strengthened our weak wills and given us renewed hope and sustenance.
A doodle in the sand, a passing glance at an altar with a difference, the smell of the aroma of apple — each indicates the search for insight. Discerning the undisclosed thoughts and intentions of the human heart, and addressing them directly or through His friends, is a considerable part of God’s business on earth.
Christians who share the good news of Christ’s kingdom with others are also, as God’s friends, agents of change. If the call to repentance and faith is heeded, no one can predict the possible ramifications in the lives and communities of those turning to Christ.
