My pastor's been challenging us for weeks to share the gospel with at least one person before Christmas. Yesterday I was at the gym in the shower. I prayed that the Lord would give me the ability to share the gospel with a man who'd spoken to me a couple of minutes earlier. When I got into the locker room and got some clothes on, he was still there. I spoke to him and quickly learned that he, too, was a Christian.
Another, younger man came in, steamy from the sauna. He was about 25 years old. He heard us talking of the Lord and started to ask us questions. First, he told us he'd never, ever been to church. He asked us whether if he died, he'd go to hell. He said he'd asked a lot of people that. We both told him, "If you believe in Jesus Christ, you'll go to heaven." He said nobody had ever told him that before. So, I did my best to tell him the gospel...forgetting some essential things, but still, the Lord was clearly there. The young man was very open to what we said, and was very honest about his reluctance to turn from his sin. I told him that he has a choice, and that the Lord commands him to believe. I told him that it's not just a matter of church, but invited him to church. Meanwhile, the other man was affirming what I said. It was a divine appointment.
Pray for this young man, that he will come to full faith in Jesus Christ.
