Episode Summary

In the early 2000s, Jon’s church Christ’s Center was experiencing a time of great growth and blessing in all of its ministries. It was at this time that the Lord began speaking to Jon about laying everything down and transitioning out as pastor of the church. The question remained to be asked: who would replace Jon as the pastor?

The man the Lord chose for the job was the least likely candidate anyone could have ever imagined.

This reminds us of another time in Scripture when God led Samuel to the least likely candidate for the new King of Israel. He said, “For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)

Bishop Dr. Carlton T. Brown

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.” One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. So Paul stayed for a year and a half, teaching them the word of God. I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
