A Journey to Faith

When first meeting Matt, I knew our relationship needed to be less business and more personal. We are still getting to know each other, but already opportunity has presented itself to discuss spiritual matters. With God’s intervention these conversations have the potential to bring Matt into relationship with Jesus – the only one who has the ability to bring true fullness of life (John 10:10).

candleA few weeks ago, I invited Matt to lunch – my treat. I seized this opportunity to grow our friendship, thank him for the role he played in God accomplishing a miracle in our lives, and discuss spiritual matters as they pertain to life’s purpose. In our conversation, we agreed that materialism and the image of wealth in Northern Virginia (NOVA) falls dreadfully short of bringing life fulfillment, and in most cases strips people of freedom and the ability to really enjoy life. I was able to share with him how my friend Mike, after being interrogated by the FBI and loosing his job, discovered where true life fulfillment is found. From there we acknowledged that if wealth or the image of wealth fail to bring fulfillment in life, then perhaps we should pursue the aspects of life that last forever – our relationship with God and with other people.

My prayer is that Matt, regardless of where he is at in his relationship with God, will increase his investment in the relationships that last forever.

I’d love to hear your stories, or the stories you seize after reading this post. What opportunities are presenting themselves for you to help others along in their journey of faith in God?
