Grace Moments Devotions - August 26, 2019

August 26
Such an angel
Pastor Matt Ewart

When I was in college, I donated a week of spring break to help out a church with some canvassing. Not only was it an opportunity to serve, but it was also a free plane ticket to a warm, sunny place.

While there I visited hundreds of houses and invited dozens of people to the local church. I am told that one of those people thought I was an angel. (People who know me know better than to make such a comparison.)

That person was in a season of life where God seemed distant, and she sincerely wanted to find a church to get connected. She just didn’t know where to start. That’s when she heard a knock on her door and found me on the other side of it. To her, it was like an angel of God had appeared at just the right time.

Have you had moments where the perfect stranger appeared at the perfect time? Perhaps you concluded that this stranger could be none other than an angel sent by God.

Maybe God does send angels. Or maybe he just sends out his sons and daughters with the good news of Christ that can dispel any darkness.

You might have a chance today to be someone’s angel. You have news from God that can bring light to someone in darkness.

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned” (Isaiah 9:2).


Your gift goes twice as far to tell others about God’s grace!

A generous donor with a heart for spreading the good news about Jesus has stepped forward with a $75,000 Challenge Grant. And this donor is challenging friends like you to meet it by August 31.

This means more people can not only learn about their Savior—but see how he is at work in their lives right now.

When you give to reach the $75,000 Challenge Grant, you’ll not only make your gift worth TWICE as much—you’ll help more people start living in the joy of God’s grace!

We’ll say thanks for your gift today by sending you a copy of our new book, Love on Repeat.

Double the impact of my gift to spread the gospel!
