Learn From Those Who Have Gone Before You! #tbt 2014

Posted on Updated on

First book I read in Townsville, Australia named Street Wise Good book was about a young man who is on his twenties. John Goodfellow was born in Nottingham, Britain. Mr. Goodfellow was a hard, skilled bricklayer, Fighter, thief, womanizer, alcoholic, and drug addict. John’s thirst for truth took him to a spiritual hunger. He was stepping in to a dimension he did not understand. So he ended up searching for God however his journey to truth was a difficult one to the point of reading black magic. Which is a false teaching and doctrine that doesn’t talk about the God who created heaven and the earth. John made many mistakes during his life. So it took him a while to figure out the path the Lord had for him. Yet the Lord was faithful to john even if he was unfaithful. Goodfellow Was becoming the man he was created to be. God is always there waiting for us to turn to him. One principle I’ve got from John he completely became a new man once he gave his life to the Lord. How would I know this you might ask? When he gone to Canada to work to help him pay quick those he owed. Yet he did not like the conduct of the employer who was giving him the Job. Time showed others who John truly was. John new how to submit to God. John was creative with his team and able to attract people on the street by performing, and be strategic on plays. So by the power God which took hold of john was bring people to Christ. I say he new how to lead a team and work as a team. One example of cross-culture was when Paul reached the city Philippi to preach in the city. The men among Paul’s journey were Timothy, Luke, and Silas. Lydia a wealthy businesswoman heart was open to Paul about Christ. One of them was Lydia from Thyatira, a merchant of expensive purple cloth, who worshiped God. As she listened to us, the Lord opened her heart, and she accepted what Paul was saying. Acts 16:14. City of Philippi had an important role of transporting goods. So you know the land was filled with wealthy, crafted, careers, jobs, and business. Jesus was having a one on one talk with the samaritan woman. Jesus a Jew was asking a samaritan woman for a drink. That would be another example of cross culture. This made the woman question her self. Why? Would a respectable Jew ask her for a drink. She a samaritan, low social status, and past sins. And Jesus cross all the barriers regardless of her status and past sins. This happen in a place were people would go time to time to draw water to drink. The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?”  John 4:9
