God loves Evel!

No worries the title is true. God really does love Evel. One of my all time favorite legends recently professed Christ as his savior, Evel Knievel. He is now old, frail, and obviously lucky to be alive. I can only imagine what a man so wired for risk could have done for God's kingdom if he had found Christ earlier.

"I don't know what in the world happened. I don't know if it was the power of the prayer or God himself, but it just reached out, either while I was driving or walking down the sidewalk or sleeping, and it just—the power of God in Jesus just grabbed me. … All of a sudden, I just believed in Jesus Christ. I did, I believed in him! … I rose up in bed and, I was by myself, and I said, 'Devil, Devil...get away from me. I cast you out of my life.' … I just got on my knees and prayed that God would put his arms around me and never, ever, ever let me go." - Evel Knievel
