Big Conversion Moments

The Bible story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal is a story in which the opportunity exists for a sudden conversion. God answered Elijah with fire to prove His existence, while the prophets of Baal could get no action out of their false God. People witnessing this spiritual contest could easily be persuaded to follow the true God, but how many did? We can miss conversion moments by obstinately holding onto our own preconceived notions. Conversion means change toward God. Be prepared always for God bringing you to some sort of change that will draw you closer to him.
