I was privileged today to pray with a young man who surrendered his life to Christ. This individual came to me (with the encouragement and accompaniment of a friend) saying he was ready to make a commitment to Christ. I explained the simple process and gave him an opportunity to consider it further. But he was ready. This clearly was the work of the Holy Spirit. Amazing! So much of the time, I find myself trying to convince someone to come to Christ. This person needed no prodding. He had been in our worship event, he had heard the Word of God and it spoke to him. He is now trusting Christ as his Savior and life-leader.
I spoke today about how we are “never too far gone” that God can’t rescue us. I shared about how God captured Saul for His service (Acts 8 and 9). And God drew this guy to Him. He is now a full-fledged Christ-follower.
That’s what it’s all about. What an honor! The highlight of my Sunday. I am thanking God and praying for this guy.
