Not having been raised in a Christian home, just about everything in the Christian community was new to me.Being young, enthusiastic, and idealistic, I listened attentively to all that was being taught.

One belief held by the teachers and students in the Bible school was that no person could do God’s will perfectly and completely. Added to this was the notion that the world was waiting for someone who would do God’s will perfectly.When that person arrived, marvelous events would occur.The idea seemed to be that God’s standards were so high that no individual could hope to attain to them. However, by an institution referred to as “grace,” which I had heard about while in the Marine Corps, we all were forgiven and would enter an eternal residence in Heaven when we died.I was intrigued by the concept of God’s standards and the “grace intervention.” I began to make noises to the effect that I believed it was possible through Christ to overcome sin.The older believers shook their heads knowingly.

They knew that when I was more experienced in the Lord I would discover, as they all had, that no one could escape the bondages of sin while living in this world, much less do God’s perfect, complete will.Being of a rebellious nature I decided to test this belief. I had no wife at the time, no brothers or sisters. My parents were deceased as were my grandparents also.

I have one living cousin who lives across the country. So I could afford to be reckless.During one recess I prayed: “Father, if you will give me the power to do so I will do your perfect will.”After recess when I went back into the classroom, a prophecy came forth: “If you mean what you say it will be a blessing to many people.”Of course, no one knew of my prayer.
