Freedom Friday with Ellis Lucas

Today on Perry and Shawn Mornings the story of Ellis Lucas.  A life transformed by the resurrection power of Jesus.  Ellis loved the first nine years of life growing up on the farm.  But then his family moved.  His tender heart was wounded by the move and on the first day in his new school he was beat up.  The wound from the move, the anger of being beat up, and fights that followed, grew into uncontrollable lifetime anger. 

In the first conversation with Perry and Shawna Ellis shares how after a brutal fight at 18, his mom, fearful of losing him, revealed 2 things:  That he had a brother he had never met, and that God showed her Ellis would one day preach the gospel.  Then Ellis shares that it wasn’t until he was 35 and facing 15 years in prison that Ellis experienced the love of Jesus that would bring about what God had revealed to his mom. 

Then, if you feel or have ever felt God could never love you, you need to hear what Ellis has to share.  And finally Ellis shares how he was finally reunited with his older brother and how that reunion led his brother to new life in Jesus  A powerful story of redemption!  Read Ellis’s full story in The Potter and the Clay.
