The man I could be. (v 1 Timothy 1 v 12 - 17 )

The poet  Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote,                                                                                                                                                            ''Could'st thou in vision see                                                                                                                          Thyself the man God meant,                                                                                                                       Thou never more could be                                                                                                                         The man thou art- content.''                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  One of my sons when he left college, threw of all restraint,and got  into all sorts of trouble,ending up on remand in prison. While in prison ,in desperation he cried unto God,and God heard,and He told him the following ,''Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem?, or have I no power to deliver'', ( Isaiah 50 v 2 ). God worked in a marvellous manner, and he did not go to prison, he was once again on the right road,eventually he became a youth leader in his church, and then he became the full time minister.He moved from that to serving God in 24/7,which  emphasises prayer,now he is ministering all over world as the international director of  24/ 7. From the man  he was to the man God has made him,all who encounter the risen Christ in their lives, can be transformed by Gods grace to the person he desires them to be.                                                                                                                                                                      Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he                                                                                                            is a new creation  ,the old has gone                                                                                                            the new has come.                                                                                                                                           ( 2 Corinthians 5 v 17 )
