Three years ago Marty Reiswig was a skeptic.
He was a devoted follower of Jesus. In fact, he spoke to youth groups all over the country. But, he was skeptical about God speaking to him on a regular, daily basis. Maybe God would speak once in a long while about the big issues – who to marry, etc. But, not as a part of daily life. We have the Bible, what else do we need?
But, things have changed in Marty’s life. He has come to experience an intimate, daily, conversational relationship with Jesus. And, he’s teaching this to teens. Below, he reports on a youth camp where he spoke this summer. He helped 200 Jr. Hi and Sr. Hi students learn how to hear God’s voice. He reports, “I had this strong thought/sense that I was to let God be the main speaker – all the students would listen to him and share what they heard.”
Before you read what happened with the teens, watch this short video where Marty describes some of his journey. (What if this is supposed to be the normative Christian experience?)
Here’s Marty’s report about how God became the keynote speaker…
