Supernatural Animation – Living Color

Unlocking Our PotentialWho Said It…Lee Strobel

Lee Strobel grew up in a Christian home, but turned atheist after encountering evolution in high school. He studied journalism and law, becoming an investigative reporter, then legal affairs editor at the Chicago Tribune.

A chance news assignment renewed his interest in God. After a nearly two-year investigation of the evidence for Jesus, Strobel received Christ as his forgiver and leader. Here he shares what nudged him to a new role as an author and teacher of apologetics.

What He Said…Living Color

One day, out of nowhere, my boss at the newspaper asked me why I was a Christian. I’d never explained that to anybody. But I closed his office door and talked for 45 minutes about the difference Jesus was making in my life and what it means to become His follower.

When I emerged from his office, it was as if my entire life up until that meeting had been a movie shot in very grainy black-and-white film with scratchy sound—but this 45 minutes had been in bright, vivid Technicolor with rich Dolby stereo! Instantly I knew that from that day forward I wanted to develop and deploy my evangelism gift in any way I could.

There’s a unique sense of fulfillment that comes when we submit our gifts to God’s use and ask him to energize them in a supernatural way—and then step back to watch what He does. It can be the difference between merely existing in black and white and living a life in full, brilliant color.

Prayer for the Week: You designed me, Lord. Show me how my potential can be fully harnessed for Your kingdom.
