Davidisms - Remembering Howard - A New Creation

My big brother Howard had many different life experiences. From a rising musical star, to the occult, to becoming a church janitor, to a dramatic moment at midnight in that church’s sanctuary in which he experienced an encounter with God. In that moment, God revealed his calling on Howard’s life. To become a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Used as an instrument in God’s hands to spread the message of reconciliation through Jesus’s love and forgiveness. It was a calling which Howard faithfully heeded for nearly 40 years. What a dramatic life transformation! Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come” (2 Cor. 5:17). Howard’s life became a testimony to the redemptive power of Jesus. And I know Howard would want me to share this with you: No matter who you are right now. What life you’re leading. No matter what you’ve done. Or haven’t done. Nothing - not one thing on this earth - can ever separate you from God’s amazing grace. Not. One. Thing. God can and will take you and make you into a new creation. My brother Howard is living proof of that. And if Jesus did it for Howard, he can do it for you.
