Hi there friend, this is Lee Poskey.

This post is in reference to a conference that I’m going to attend next month Lord willing.

The two speakers at this conference have been used powerfully by God in helping me to understand God’s grace. And so I want to go to this conference to finally meet my old friend Bob Christopher, and my newer friend Andrew Farley.

[Bob was a major influence in my early walk with God, and Andrew has been a major influence more in recent years. But they both are very loved by me, and I still listen to them both].

You see, back in 2012 I was a truck driver, (that’s when God called me to salvation).
And God put a LOT of guilt on my conscience, and a powerful craving inside of me to be right with Him back then.
But religion was no help to me at all in helping me to deal with the spiritual hurricane that was going on inside of me at that time.
Over and over again, I’d pull off the highway and go crawl under my trailer and beg God to forgive me of my sins and to please don’t throw me away. But there never seemed to be any finality of my being forgiven by God.
And believe me, when God causes you to crave His mercy, no amount of religion will help you in the slightest, because religion’s message seems to be to keep asking God for forgiveness. (But where does it end?)
The only cure for that miserable state of sin-conviction, is for God to make His undiluted free grace come alive inside of you.
And when God quickens His free grace inside of you, when He causes you to rest in the finished work of Christ, there’s no amount of liberation & joy in the world that can even remotely compare with it, it’s that powerful. It’s so priceless, that if I had to choose between life in prison with God’s grace, or a billion dollars without it, I’d choose life in prison with God’s grace and never look back.

So back in 2012 I had a regular delivery route from Katy Texas to Corpus Christi Texas, and I would listen intently to a particular radio show that Bob Christopher was on. [That radio show was originally called “people to people” back then, but that same radio show was later called “basic gospel,” which is still on the air today].

You should’ve seen how I’d hustle on my runs to get to at least the halfway-point to Corpus Christi so I could be in radio-range of that show before it came on the air. (It wasn’t broadcast in my home-area of Houston, so my only access to that show was during my deliveries to Corpus Christi).
I had to hear that message of free grace!
I had an insatiable craving for heavy doses of that message!
I had to pursue comprehensive sin-forgiveness it until it was all mine, because I wanted to be forgiven more than anything in the world.

And on this particular radio show, Bob was teaching God’s free grace, the finished work of Christ, (and it was helpful to me unlike anything that I’d ever heard before). It was the only message that really gave me hope in regard to forgiveness from God.
[None of the institutional churches that I was listening to and going to was pumping out this kind of information].
And I’d call into the show while it was on-air and ask Bob questions, trying to understand and receive God’s forgiveness of my sins.

{Ultimately, God did form Christ in me. All of this momentum exploded inside of me one night while I was all alone driving my 18-wheeler. That was the moment when God caused me to really own His comprehensive sin-forgiveness (that’s described in Colossians 2.13). And when that happened, I jumped up and down in my seat, banging on my truck’s headliner shouting something like…”I’m forgiven! I’m forgiven! Praise God! I’m really and truly forgiven!”}

It was all a precious time in my life when God drew me to Himself & saved me that I’ll never forget.

And so today I learned that the radio show “basic gospel” is ending at the end of this year, which caused me tears of sorrow.
Therefore it would mean a lot to me to go to this conference so that I could shake hands with my old friend Bob who I love, but have never actually met.

Of course the risen Lord Jesus Christ gets all of the credit in everything. He’s the One Who was making all of this happen in the first place.
Jesus is my very life, and without Him, nothing would have any meaning at all.

Blessed be the Name of the Lord. All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ, and no glory to us whatsoever!

Acts 17.26-28

26 “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.”
