Things weren¬ít going well at Joe¬ís home. Drinking was almost destroying it. About this time, another man asked Joe¬ís wife for a date and she accepted. In his rage, Joe said, "I¬íll shoot that guy!"
Joe actually had this man in his gun sights, but he said, "I can¬ít shoot a human being. I know what I¬íll do. I¬íll get myself liquored up and then I¬íll shoot him." Again he was not able to do it.
Joe went home in desperation. He cast himself down on the lawn and cried out, "God, help me! What am I going to do? I¬ím about to lose my wife, my home, and my family. Please help me!"
The next day two men from a church in a nearby town called at his house as part of their church¬ís regular visitation program. Joe asked them, "Did God send you?" One of the men answered, "I don¬ít know; I guess so."
Today, all of Joe¬ís family are trusting Jesus as their Savior. They are attending the same church as the men who called on Joe. Joe helps to keep the church¬ís fleet of buses running and drives one of the buses as part of his service to his Lord.
Calling on others is part of God¬ís program. Probably no one understands that more than Joe.
