God Has People SO Ready!
This morning I prayed especially to see someone get saved.
What a way to see Him do it. Great lesson I had an appointment with my
radiant Christian doctor about my horrible hip pains. He has a nurse that I
have never been able to get alone and witness to her. Today, as she was
finishing, I gave her "Your Ticket to Heaven," She blurted out, "Oh
I need that." When I asked if she knew for sure she was going to heaven she
said, "I read the book 'Left Behind' and it scared me to death and I have
been wanting to get saved ever since. Knowing I had only a few minutes, I
told her how God loves her and how we are all in the same boat, we have all
sinned and the wages of sin is death. The good news in that the Lord Jesus
suffered and died for our sins, paid our debt in full, was buried, rose
again and was seen by hundreds. The whole issue is did He pay for your sins
and mine in full or didn't He. God said He did. God wants to know if you
will trust Him that Jesus paid for your sins too and will receive Him as
your Savior, just as you said, "Yes I will receive this man as my husband"
when you got married. It was beautiful the way God opened her eyes and she
understood it. Any Christian could have led her to Christ, she was so ready.
She prayed out loud to receive the Lord Jesus, looked up beaming all over
the place and had the assurance she was saved and thanked me over and over.
Of course I am going to follow up with her in several ways. More on this
Here is a big key, as you get alone with someone, no matter where it might
be, just look for the ones God has ready and give them the gospel and a
chance to go to heaven. Make sense? People often say, "Sumner, you make it
sound so easy." IT IS! I know better than
you, that God did it all. I do not take one ounce of credit for it. I just
love getting in on it.
FATHER, please let the man, the lady who just read this to help change the
world for good and God by getting the gospel to someone today. In Jesus
Name. I love YOU.
