But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear (1 Peter 3:15)
This scripture became very real to me the week before last. A work colleague came up to me and said he wanted to speak to me about Christianity as he was interested in it (how often does that happen?) Because I was at work at the time and our lunch times never seemed to be at the same time, I was not able to speak to him. Last week I was not at work so I still had not spoken to him and I knew this week at work, I would be very busy. So I thought, this guy has APPROACHED ME and I have not spoken to him yet and I would hate to know that he died and I never spoke to him about Christ when he was the one who enquired. So yesterday, I found his mobile number and I called him. He said he has watched me at work and knew that I was ‘religious’ (his words, not mine). He has been pondering spirituality for some time now.After asking him about what he thinks happens after death and what he understands about Christianity, I then went on to give him the gospel from beginning to end. I then asked him if it was OK if I prayed for him afterwards (not the ‘sinners prayer’) after which he was very appreciative and even became emotional.
I will continue to water the seed at work and let the Holy Spirit do the work until, hopefully, he will come to a place of true repentance and faith
Please remember him in your prayers
