Pocket Dialing

Our church has been teaching about becoming a contagious Christian for several weeks now, and we all have been learning a lot.  One of the things we learn repeatedly is how God works in mysterious ways.   Last week, one of our group members shared an interesting story.    It seems  he had “pocket-dialed” one of his business associates the Sunday before last.  Of course he was unaware that this had happened.

But God knew.

The man on the other end of the line listened to our service via Rick’s phone for more than twenty minutes.  He called Rick later and asked him where he went to church.  As it turns out, the man lives in North Carolina, not Indiana, but he told Rick that listening to the service had convicted him and that he and his wife  were looking for a church to attend the next Sunday.

Isn’t it funny the way God uses things?  His word does not return to Him empty.  It accomplishes what He desires and achieves the purpose for which He sent it out.

Even through a cell phone.

    That is amazing. What are the odds of that happening and that the man on the other end needed to hear and actually listened to the sermon.

    Hi Becky,

    Enjoyed the story about the pocket dialing. God has no limitations, and you just never know who or what God is going to use to draw someone closer to Him.
