How the Holy Spirit Transformed This Former Yoga Instructor

Mike Shreve (Charisma Media archive)

The gospel of Jesus Christ can reach into the darkest places and change lives!

The apostle Paul declared the following in Ephesians 2:1, "And you were dead in your trespasses and sin." Here he describes a place of total separation from God. This is where we exist before we are born again by the Spirit of God.

Despite the grim picture that Paul reveals, he also depicts the glorious reality of transformation through Jesus when he declares the following in Ephesians 2:5, "Even when we were dead in sins, [He] made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved).

Mike Shreve is a former yoga instructor and New Age spiritualist whose life was radically changed through Jesus Christ. Since his conversion to Christ, Mike has spent 50 years ministering the gospel with a strong focus on evangelism. On this week's episode of Maintain the Flame, I interview Mike Shreve as we discuss his powerful testimony, as well as our identities in Christ.

During this powerful interview, we also talk about how the Lord used him in my own life as he was the evangelist preaching on the night that I was saved at a church in North Florida on Jan. 24, 1985.
