【Shoes of the Gospel】Is it Hard to Lead Someone to Christ?

Author: Trustworthy Message  2022-08

I would like to share a testimony with you all:

February 16, 2022, on the morning of my surgery to remove my breast cancer tumor, I set my alarm clock to arrive at the hospital early in the morning, but I woke up an hour earlier than scheduled. So I asked the Heavenly Father, “What will I do with this extra hour?” The Holy Spirit spoke a name in my heart. So I called her immediately, and she was chatting with a classmate on Zoom. I suddenly thought that her classmate might be a non-believer! Does God want me to preach the gospel to this classmate? The problem is that I don’t know this person! So I need to find an entry point before I preach the gospel!

So I asked them, “In an hour, I’m going to the hospital for surgery. Did God create imperfect humans, and so people get sick?” They didn’t have an answer. So I said, “God created man, originally perfect, but since man sinned, there have been diseases in the world. Diseases, viruses, and bacteria do not come from God, but man’s sin!”

I used the “Q & A” method to ask questions for the next half an hour. When they couldn’t answer, I gave them multiple choices! After that, God allowed me to share the complete gospel from God’s creation, man’s sin, Jesus’ birth, death, resurrection, and Jesus’ return. Finally, I asked, “Would you like to pray and accept Jesus as Saviour?” They were both willing to pray. So I led them to pray and believe in Jesus. Then I checked the clock, and it was just the right time to go to the hospital. It was the first time I have led people to believe in Jesus on the Internet, across the Pacific Ocean, and on Zoom.

Afterward, I called them twice to follow up! Thank God that modern advanced technology provides countless opportunities for evangelism. Is it difficult to lead people to the Lord? It can be difficult, or maybe not! The most important thing is to have a heart for the gospel and always be ready.

1 Peter 3:15But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.
