Kirsten Powers, reluctant follower of Jesus

Kirsten Powers, reluctant follower of Jesus

Here is a story that might encourage all you small group Bible study leaders out there.

Every one has a unique story about how they come to trust in Jesus. In the case of Ms. Powers,  a former political operative turned political pundit, it started with hearing some thoughtful preaching and eventually joining a Bible study. She concluded her article: The Hound of Heaven had pursued me and caught me—whether I liked it or not.

Excerpt:

I remember walking into the Bible study. I had a knot in my stomach. In my mind, only weirdoes and zealots went to Bible studies. I don’t remember what was said that day. All I know is that when I left, everything had changed. I’ll never forget standing outside that apartment on the Upper East Side and saying to myself, “It’s true. It’s completely true.” The world looked entirely different, like a veil had been lifted off it. I had not an iota of doubt. I was filled with indescribable joy.
