Felix (Week 7)
Bible study was pretty good. The burgers were good, the worship was good, the lesson was good, and the fellowship was good. It was a little awkward, however. Grace graced us with a lesson on God’s use of our weaknesses and how he has a plan even when we only see chaos. It was good, but what came afterward was great.
A few friends and I somehow met up with each other and went to see this man who sells newspapers every Sunday named Felix. Rachel has been visiting with him every week for a while now, and the evidence of her impact on him is enormous! He finds so much joy and hope in her consistency and faith!
Anyways, there were about six of us all sitting there chatting with him. He told us about how a man had bought him out of newspapers (41 I think), which allowed Felix to break the corner record of newspapers sold by reaching 100 papers! He told us a little about his life and his church background – turns out he grew up in the same church that three of the guys with us currently attend!
I’m not really sure what God is trying to tell me by allowing Bible study to be a little dry tonight but by allowing our talk with Felix to be so real. Could it be that our Gospel community’s purpose reaches past the walls of our high school? I’m sure we’ll all find out soon! Whatever it is God has planned – it’s gonna be big!
