Please describe an experience of how Jesus Christ, or His character, was revealed to someone else in a totally unexpected way.

City-Data Christian Forum!

A few weeks ago, I was researching cities and states without a thought of Christian forums whatsoever. I stubbled across this City-Data Christian forum completely by accident and thought, "Wow! God you are clever."

You never cease to make me chuckle!

Well, actually I kinda thought that at first, too. I thought "Oh COOL! A great way for Christians to share their hobbies and how they may use them to glorify God." But alas, 'tis not about that.

Default triathlon

Another way Jesus Christ showed up unexpectedly was at a triathlon recently. I volunteered at this year's Escape to Miami Triathlon. I didn't have a specific function initially, but just made myself availabe for whatever position needed to be filled. As it where, I was chauffeured out to the bicycle portion 20-some-odd miles down the course to ensure the cyclists turned where they needed to. Isolation to say the least.

For safety and liability reasons, we were paired up w/ a partner. I had no clue who mine would be. But as Christ would have it, my teammate was another solid Christian guy! We were stuck for about 6 hours together and talked all about Jesus Christ. He had an obvious heart for the Lord and was working on becoming a missionary physician! In some ways, it was Christ using each of us as a vessel containing His glory to keep the other guy in fellowship.

It was awesome! And I am grateful.
