    Or technically, one of my employees. Our workplace runs the gamut, from people I know I will see in the kingdom to others who identify as outright pagans. Religion will pop up now and again as a topic of conversation, much like sports or politics.

    There was some discussion on Christianity going on, as we have a temp contractor with us who is an excellent student of the Bible. He and I have had a number of fruitful conversations lately. But it was my job to get the guys out of their seats and off to work, so as I was sending them out, KB questioned how his grandmother could attend church every Sunday, yet still steal money from her family. I told him to google total depravity. Not my finest work, obviously, but it was time to start the day's labor.

    Anyways, the next day, he comes into my office, and low and behold he had gone home and googles total depravity. He ended up watching a few hours of Sproul on Youtube, and I could tell that whatever he had heard had affected him. I was pretty surprised, but we talked through some questions for a half hour or so. I don't know what he heard from Sproul, but he definitely understood his need for a Savior. And I presented the Gospel as plainly as I could.

    Unfortunately, I only have a few days left at the office, until I leave for a year. I'll certainly try to stay in touch with him, but if possible, I ask that you all keep KB in your prayers. Thank you.

    ...lol, it happens every now and then!

    Primitive Baptist hymn, 'I Will Arise And Go To Jesus', 2nd stanza:

    "Let not conscience let you linger,
    Nor of fitness fondly dream;
    All the fitness he requireth
    Is to feel your need of him
    ."
