Pastor of a fast-growing multi-ethnic church in Oklahoma City brings a message of hope that can change lives.
But God. These two words have the potential to turn every single person's life upside-down. The phrase is short--just six letters long--but the implications are huge.
Pastor Herbert Cooper was living a reckless lifestyle when he heard the gospel at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes meeting--a meeting he hadn't even planned to attend--and gave his life to Christ. This was his But God moment. His path may have looked bleak, dim, and hopeless, but God changes everything.
We've all sinned, made stupid decisions, and fallen out of sync with the life God intends for us. We've all had moments--or months or years--that drag us down, leaving us feeling hopeless and lost. We need a change, an intervention, something to happen to turn our lives around. We need a But God moment.
Fortunately, it is just when we are at our lowest that God steps in to offer us a new path and hope for our lives. All we need to do is recognize and seize these moments when they occur. Life may be tough--But God changes everything.
