So, I have a really great friend who's a very devout Baptist. Without divulging too much, he had a very violent upbringing with a horrible childhood eventually ending up in jail for running stolen cars from MO to FL. When I met him, he had recently accepted Christ in his life and was struggling daily with his temper (being Irish, we both did), his family and esp his alcoholic father (who since passed away some three years ago). Over the years, his temper has pretty much disappeared, he works hard to be a great dad, husband and employee. He's active in his church and reads scripture every morning; I'm telling y'all, this guy is a true inspiration for me! We've had a few 'theological' discussions in the past, always very friendly but we were firm with our views. Over the years because of family obligations, we've sort of drifted apart (we used to lift weights 3 -4 days a week, etc...), but we've always made time for one another when something serious came up. OK, so today he told me something that really just took me aback. He said that he's felt God calling him to become a missionary. If y'all knew this person, you'd believe him when he says he's shy and doesn't like to be in the spotlight. So, he tells me that he approached his wife two nights ago (also a very devout Baptist) and said, "I have something to tell you and it's kind of scary." He said she replied, "I know... God placed it on my heart that you and I are to become missionaries." Can you believe this!?!? He had been keeping it to himself because he was very scared about the prospect of becoming a missionary. So, if this is really from God, and I have absolutely no reason to think otherwise, what should I take away from this?
