Friday’s are usually quiet around NewPointe. There are only a handful of people working. For me it is a good day to catch up and get things done. I only had one appointment today, so I thought I should be able to get some projects finished. I ended up making two more appointments. One with a guy I had been trying to call all week and we finally made contact. He said he wanted to talk, so I told him to come in at noon.
When he got here I soon discovered that he was really seeking God. He had walked away from God in the past, but found himself in a difficult situation. That situation brought right back to God. He had a lot of questions and even wondered if God was punishing him. We talked for a while about how God doesn’t punish us for being bad, He loves us.
I could tell that he was very open to spiritual things, so I asked him if anyone has explained what it means to be saved. He said no, so I used the bridge example to show him that Jesus bridged the gap between us and God. I also took him to some Scriptures that explain how we are all sinners and need to be saved and that the only way to be saved is through Jesus Christ. We read the Scriptures together and then I read Revelation 3:20 “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock, If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” I asked him if he wanted Jesus to come into his life. He said yes!
We prayed right there in my office. I gave him a Bible and showed him where to start reading. I will be following up with him to see if he has questions and to get him more connected with other believers.
There were many other people investing in his life. His family & some friends had all been encouraging him. They would give him CD’s from NewPointe and invite him to church. All that investing worked!
My other two appointments had to do with relationships. I hope I was able to help point them to God and to refocus their relationship with Jesus and not on all their problems. It is so easy to get distracted and off track. Sometimes people just need to be reminded that God is on their team and He is waiting for them to come to Him.
I feel very humbled that on a quiet Friday at NewPointe I was able to connect some people to God.
