My ONE Story

Shortly after I began working at a local dental office, the ONE Focus initiative kicked off. I really didn’t feel God had a strong presence in my workplace, although some people said that they went to church. Anyway, right away I knew who my ONE would be: a coworker named Trina. I invited Trina to church occasionally, but I was not encouraged by her response at all. One time when I invited...

Courage and Words

I have known my ONE for almost five years. We met at the gym. We have worked out together, participated in triathlons together, and have shared meals with one another. Since I’ve known my ONE, I’ve been aware that she doesn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In fact, she barely knows anything about him. She was raised in Germany, and her parents never took her to church. I...

Camille's Cafe

Hey, I wanted you to know that my ONE accepted Christ today in Camille’s Cafe. She grew up in Tulsa but didn’t know anything about the Bible or Christ. She is a great, professional person, but she just didn’t know. I asked her to lunch about a month ago, and we had a great visit, and then I asked her where she was spiritually. She started out by saying she had been to church a few...

Always ONE

I had been praying for One year and One month for my One. I wasn’t sure if the door was ever really going to open, but God would not let me move on to someone else. So, I kept praying, and then it happened – the first opportunity to spend some One on One time with my One. I got to spend four hours with him helping him get his boat ready for a tournament. We talked about everything, and I...

Praise for Rachel's ONE

I know a lot of you were in contemporary service this morning and I just wanted to pass along a story about how God is working through our One focus. A few weeks ago in my high school girls class, a new girl, Courtney started coming. She came with her friend Rachel who is in a different grade and class. Well, this morning in small group, one of my girls asked me how things were going with my One....

ONE by ONE

“As you sent Me into the world, I have sent them into the world.” John 17:18 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 Jesus told us as the Father sent Him into the world, so He is sending us. He could have had an extensive marketing plan; instead He chose...

ONE Thing

When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “You still lack ONE thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” Luke 18:22 The story of the rich young ruler is well known. It strikes a nerve in each of us making us wonder if the Lord will ask us to give up all we have to follow Him. When the man refuses to give up his...

The Influence of ONE Voice

With ONE voice they cried out, “Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us!” Luke 23:18 I had read this Bible verse many times, but after watching the movie, The Passion of the Christ, I was even more confused and shocked. There had to be people in the crowd who did not want Jesus to be crucified. Why didn’t they speak up? How did the frenzy of the situation get out of hand? In this...
