God’s Transforming Power.
He has rescued us from the one who rules in the kingdom of darkness, and He has brought us into the Kingdom of His dear Son.
Jesse Blocker had his first taste of alcohol at the age of eight. By age fourteen, he was an alcoholic. By age thirty-six, he was a hopeless drunk living on the streets. But God had another plan for Jesse’s life.
One night after getting drunk, he passed out on the railroad tracks. Several days later he awoke in the hospital with both legs missing and one arm mangled courtesy of a passing freight train. After his release from the hospital, Jesse went back to drinking.
The believers at Pine Castle United Methodist Church heard about Jesse’s tragic accident and began to pray for this desperate man. Delores Kagi and a friend tried to reach out to him but Jesse continued to drink.
One day, Jesse and a friend were drinking on the pier at Lake Conway. Jesse tried to commit suicide by rolling himself off the pier. As he was sinking to the bottom, he cried out to God and said, “Dear Lord God, in the name of Jesus…”
That Wednesday night he rolled into the sanctuary and up to the altar. The believers gathered around him as he wept his way to repentance and forgiveness. Jesse’s life was forever changed. Many years have passed since then. Today, Jesse reaches out to the homeless, the alcoholic, and the addict with the good news of Jesus Christ.
Just as the living Christ dramatically transformed Jesse’s life, you, too, can find the power to change. Like Jesse, your life can reflect God’s glory to your world.
Is there something in your life that has you in a virtual stranglehold? Cry out to God as Jesse did, and find other believers who will encourage you. Then let God continue to transform you by His power, and use you for His glory!
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Thank You Jesus.
