Sony’s Thoughts: A Heart for the Lost
“So that I may snatch from the jaws of hell someone not so unlike myself.” I first heard these words about 15 years ago in a song the Bishops sang called “More Than My Voice.” Yet that phrase still catches my ears each time I hear it.
I don’t know why but at times I tend to look at the world around me and feel like most people are hopeless. “They’re never going to come to God,” I think. However, God has time and time again reminded me of the fact that I was not born saved. In fact, I’m sure a lot of folks who knew me years ago would be surprised at the fact that I am still alive, let alone serving God. At one time, I think our family would have been voted least likely to succeed basket cases. Thanks to God my past is past! With that reality, how can I not have compassion for those who are where I was all those years ago? God still saves and He can use us to be the Light this world needs to give them a desire to change.
This May will mark 19 years that I’ve been striving to serve God, and I thank Him every day for saving me when He did. Thanks to Him I have a new life and a song to sing. “And my song shall ever be, ‘How marveous! How wonderful is my Savior’s love for me!'”
