Fear of God Devotional: The Power of the Gospel

What is an example that demonstrates the power of the Gospel in the life of an unbeliever?

Paul Carrington explains in this video that he became a Christian at 20 years old. His wife had just become a Christian, perhaps weeks before. Someone had lent him a Bible. He had never opened one.  

One night, while he was sitting in his room, he decided to open up the Bible. He opened to the Sermon on the Mount. He remembers sitting there and being blown away. He remembers having a desire to know who Jesus was. He went through his entire room and tossed all of his cassette tapes in the trash.

He came back to his room and began devouring the Word of God. He went to church. He could not put down the Word of God. He also desired to share what he had learned with anyone who would listen to him. 

Ezekiel 36:26 (NKJV) – “ I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
