I read Chris’ prayer request like many of you, and my heart leaped within my chest. I continually, stand amazed in the presence of Christ. I think about the meeting that Jesus had with Nicodemus. Nicodemus asked, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mothers womb and be born?” Jesus says, “don’t marvel that I said you must be born again. The wind blows, where it wishes, and you hear it’s sound, but you don’t know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone that is born again.”
Chris Cain was born again at Vacation Bible School, by the power of God. The Spirit of God came and took up residence in his life. Do you know how I know that? It wasn’t because I saw the Spirit of God go inside of him. We can’t see the Spirit of God, just like we can’t see the wind, but you can see the effects of the Spirit of God taking up residence in Chris’s life. This is what Jesus was laboring to tell Nicodemus. Nicodemus, you can’t see the wind. You have no idea where it is coming from or where it is going, but you cannot deny that it exists. You see the effects it has on the trees and you can feel it on your face. So it is with everyone who is born again. You can’t see the Spirit of God going inside of someone, but there is no denying it when He comes into a person’s life.
Chris has people at a church in Indianapolis, that he met in training who want to come to his baptism. Everywhere his job takes him, he finds a church on Sunday to worship the Lord. The guy who is training him is curious to why he always wants to go to church. I can tell you why. Chris was born again by the power of God. Christ saved him and set him free from the bondage of sin. Now he is driven by the Spirit to live for Christ and not himself. When Chris figures out what town he is going to be in on Sunday; he gets on the internet and finds a First Baptist Church in that town and calls them and ask them if they will pick him up at the truck stop and bring him to church. Seriously, if that doesn’t cause the coals in your heart to flame then your heart is dead. I stand amazed at what God is doing in Chris’ life. Wow! What a Savior!!!!!!!!!
