TRANSFORMED...There once was a man who had lived a wretched life. His business failed, his wife left him, his siblings avoided him. It was a sad situation. Finally, he secured a job which did not pay a lot but allowed him to live. On this job, he met a man who was different from the others. He did not tell dirty stories, nor enter in the critique of work procedures nor the employer. One day this man, new to the job, asked the different guy if they could talk at lunch break. They did, and the man explained to him how his life had been changed completely by his relationship with Jesus Christ. He had been a failure himself. He had indulged in alcohol, drugs, sex and almost lost his wife. He stated when he was intro- duced to Jesus Christ, his whole life changed. He apologized to his wife, she forgave him, and they began anew. The newly hired man was stunned. He had attended church and heard about Christ as a boy, but walked away from it for a more interesting life. He began to meet with this Christian friend each week and a transformation began in him. He finally embraced Christ in faith and everything changed. No, everything did not automatically fall into place. But he was transformed, and his life bore witness to the power Jesus has and how he can help anyone overcome anything. So, let us not be overly concerned about being “different.” It could be our different perspective, one which relies on Christ in our lives, which catches the attention of others, so that they too might become transformed.
