I saw it happen on his face...


I saw it happen on his face...

I saw it happen. I was sitting beside the guy and I saw on his face when it happened...

It was ‘eureka’ moment for him...

On Thursday nights we have been going over to a friend’s bible study. Last Thursday there was a new family there that they had invited. As we walked through Mark chapter 2 it became apparent that the night was not about Mark chapter 2. It was about this man that the Lord had brought here so that someone could explain to him the Gospel.

I saw it happen on his face, the moment he realized the full implications (if anyone really could) of Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

It was truly a glorious moment. I wished I could hear the angels rejoicing in Heaven at that moment.

That is what all this life is about. That is why we are still here on this earth. To reach into the gates of Hell and pull out sinners destined for eternal damnation. All else is just hay, wood, and stubble…

Good job to my friend for being bold and inviting a perfect stranger to his Bible study.

Thank you Lord for loving us even when we didn’t want anything to do with You.

What an awesome experience! I hope that that man and his family are plugged into a church and discipled.

Yes he is. He started going to church with the other couple (the one's hosting the bible study) and has been very hungry for the Word the last week!

Amen Donny,

You know, just the experience of that night. Leading the man to the truth… It is hard to explain but, just seeing that, and knowing a person was saved from Hell before my very eyes was a wake up call.

It showed me how much 'busy work' I am involved in that has no spiritual value.

It's like God save that man right in front of me to show me what really matters.
