Cincinnati Reds’ pitcher Michael Lorenzen did not grow up a man of faith. One night at a Huntington Beach pier, while Michael was high on pot, a man came up and witnessed to him. The young Lorenzen did not profess faith in Christ immediately, but began thinking about what the man said. Eventually, Lorenzen concluded he wanted to be a Christian. Though he does not know the name of the man who witnessed to him, it started a chain reaction for Lorenzen. He has become an avid Christian, studies the Bible regularly and speaks often of God when the opportunity presents itself. So we should keep sowing seeds, including when doing so doesn’t seem to make a difference, because it just might make a huge difference.
