A young man was in a parking lot just shortly after being saved and he found a pack of cigarettes lying unopened on the ground near his car. His first thought was to keep them and smoke them as he had always done, but he felt prompted to do something different. He picked them up, crushed the pack and threw them into the dumpster. At that point, he heard God speak to his heart that if he would continue to treat temptation and sin in the same manner that God would use him in a great and powerful way. Many of you may recognize the young man today as Evangelist Steve Hill who spent over five years preaching each night of the Brownsville Revival in Pensacola, Florida.

(From a sermon by Rodney Burton, "P.O.W.E.R." 1/26/2009)
