John 9:25 New International Version (NIV)
If you’re a follower of Jesus Christ, here’s what I know about you without even knowing you: Once you were blind, but now you see.
That’s a common phrase we use today, but it came from a New Testament story about a blind man. Jesus saw this man and healed him in an unorthodox way. He spit on the ground, stirred it around in some dirt, and then put it on the man’s eyes. Then Jesus told him to go and wash in the Pool of Siloam.
That is the power of a changed life.
I think people are often surprised that we weren’t always the way we are now. I don’t know where they think Christians come from, but they seem to put us all in one giant category. Then we mess with their narrative when we say, “Hold on. I didn’t always believe this. I used to believe this way” or “I used to live another way.”
Everyone has a story to tell. So, let’s look for opportunities to start evangelistic conversations.
