Only God: Part 1, Only God Can Soften a Heart of Stone
Series Description: How many times have you seen change in your church or in an individual, and hopefully (and especially) even in yourself, that you've been able to attribute to 'Only God'? God is able to do amazing works within the heart of man, bringing about change that is possible solely through his transforming power. It was so in the biblical stories around which this series is built and it is true today. Anyone truly serious about wanting to reflect the heart of Jesus has got to be open and obedient to the messages of life change that God--only God--imparts both through his Word and through the promptings of the Holy Spirit. God can soften hearts of stone, penetrate prejudiced hearts, grow human hearts, free captive hearts, and lead submitted hearts.

Service Description: Using the story of Saul's Damascus Road experience and his eventual conversion, seekers through Christ-centered on the spiritual continuum are encouraged to solidify their connection to God through diligent and thoughtful reading of the Bible. Saul was certainly on the list of 'least likely to become a Christian,' but as this series emphasizes: Only God. And just as God used Ananias in Paul's transformational journey, so he wants Christ-followers today to respond to his promptings, not only to take steps to move along in their personal walk with him, but to seek the open doors where they can bring the message of salvation to those whose hearts are ready.
