The power of God to transform a life by Pastor Melissa Scott

August 18th, 2011

And I’m going to say again, like I said about sainthood, about saints: There are people who are going to say, “There is no possible way that He could have chosen me; God can choose everybody else.” Did you notice? Some of you maybe have been Christians for a long time, so it doesn’t hit you as much as it’s hit me, the realization of what double-standard society we live in, that in essence, “Everybody else can be chosen, but I can’t.” That’s the society we live in. In fact, I made a comment to somebody about when we were at San Quentin. Society rejects the idea of the power unto salvation, the power of God to transform a life.

Society rejects that because if you are not born into the church as a second generation, or if you’re not born into the church as a child growing up who never knew anything else, you become looked at differently: “God couldn’t have possibly chosen you.” He absolutely did. He chose you and spoke your name; He spoke my name and chose me. And there are many people who fight and buck the tide, but eventually, it’s like I said about these people who are responding and saying, “I want to come home now.” You can do stupid things. God gives us freedom; we’re not wind-up toys. He gives us the freedom to make mistakes. He gives us the freedom to do stupid things because we are human.
