I’m in a Deep Depression

Two bubbly college girls were working with us at our Bible table on the beach promenade. We were questioning the wisdom of coming on such a cold day,  when two 20-year-old guys stopped by.

The girls engaged them by giving them our “Good Person Test.”  When the guys both insisted they were indeed good, the girls asked if they’d be willing to take our “Lie Detector Test.”   Well whaddya know, they both failed!  They laughed.  It was all in fun.

I then explained that I’m sure they are good guys, but according to the Bible, no one is good enough to enter heaven.  We are all sinners and we all need a Savior, and there’s only One. They both agreed they were sinners and needed a Savior. 

Jake said, “I recently dropped out of school because of dyslexia and now I’m in a deep depression.  I came down here thinking the ocean air would help.”

I said, “Jake, it is not an accident that you’re here.  God loves you and wants to help you.” While we began sharing the message of Jesus with Jake, his friend walked to a nearby bench. Elena quickly followed and boldly (yet winsomely) shared Jesus with him.

Meanwhile, Jan and I explained to Jake that as well as having his sins forgiven, when a person surrenders his life to Jesus, he receives the Holy Spirit and all the fruit of the Spirit. “When you receive the Holy Spirit you then have the power to resist sin.” I told him that God wants us to trust Him by thanking Him for our situation, no matter how difficult.

Jake said He was willing to do that–he wanted it ALL!  He said he’d recently started attending a Bible church but had not yet surrendered his life to Jesus, nor had he heard about the Holy Spirit.  He wanted to pray and give his life to Jesus now! Afterward he said,  “I feel different. I feel lighter and more peaceful. I know God directed me to come here today.”

We gave him two booklets: Would You Like to Know God Personally?  http://www.4laws.com/laws/englishkgp/KnowGod1.html   and
Have You e Wonderful Discovery of the Spirit-Filled Life?  http://www.cru.org/training-and-growth/classics/the-spirit-filled-life/
I explained that the booklets complement each other.  The first one shows the importance of surrendering to Jesus. The second one shows us how the Holy Spirit works in our lives.

I said, “I believe God is already removing your depression.  I also believe God is going to help you with your dyslexia—which will improve as you read more and more. You might even try reading aloud.”

He agreed to do that and could not thank us enough.  As we began packing up to head home, we praised God that a cold and dreary day could have such a serendipitous end!

Professor Ridicules Christian

Rachel was a university sophomore taking Spanish.  The professor asked in Spanish, “How many of you believe in angels.  Rachel was the only one to raise her hand.

The professor chuckled.  “Tell us why you believe in angels.”

“The Bible speaks of angels.”

Another chuckle. “Are you saying that you believe the Bible is true?”

“Yes, I do believe the Bible is true.”

The professor laughed aloud and continued to question Rachel while ridiculing her Christian beliefs.  She stood strong while the rest of the class remained silent.

Three students caught up with Rachel after class to tell her they were also Christians and were silently praying for her.  Rachel thanked them but in the future decided she would remain silent as well.

What would you have done? Have you heard of similar tactics in colleges and universities?

  • If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.   John 15:18
  • Be alert and of sober mind.  Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.   1 Peter 5:8

I Read Your Letter Over & Over

I had been married four years when I attended my first Bible study and then gave my life to Jesus Christ. He entered my life and changed it completely. I became a new person! I still remember that first week when everyday I would see my life with new eyes. My desires changed. My life’s purpose changed. Moreover, God filled me with a new love, peace and joy that I’d never before known.

Later that year I received a Christmas letter from one of my closest friends from nursing school. I wrote back sharing how Christ had changed my life.  I even sent her a booklet by Bill Bright called, Would You Like to Know Christ Personally?  https://www.cru.org/how-to-know-god/would-you-like-to-know-god-personally.html    She did not respond to my booklet or my good news.

I did not hear back from her until the following Christmas. Again I responded with a Christmas letter sharing new things God had taught me during the past year.  I also sent her a recorded message.

Again I didn’t hear back from her until the following Christmas. Again I responded the same. This went on for ten years!  One day she called.  She was coming to town and coming over.  She said, “We need to talk.”

I was thrilled to see her! Then she said, “You know all those letters and tapes and booklets about God you sent me over the years? They were not wasted. I read your letters over and over—the booklets too! I listened to your tapes repeatedly. I want you to know that they were instrumental in my decision to surrender my life to Jesus Christ. He has changed my life and I am forever grateful.” We hugged and cried and prayed together.

Even though she lives in another part of the world, we’ve become closer than ever.  After all, we are now true sisters in the Lord. Moreover, her husband has since come to Christ as well.  How good is our God!  I will forever praise Him.

  •  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.     Matthew 5:16
  •  Remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins.     James 5:20

A Friend Becomes an Alcoholic

I watched my friend Lesley slowly become an alcoholic.  Years passed, and her life and her abilities declined.

I remember asking,  “Lesley, do you ever think about spiritual things?”

I was impressed with her knowledge of God and the Bible.  She admitted that deep inside she believed Jesus was the answer to her challenges, but she was not ready to give her life to Him.

Lesley’s alcoholism eventually resulted in liver disease and esophageal varices (varicose veins). One day we learned that her varices hemorrhaged during the night.  She had almost died and was in ICU.  I prayed all the way to the hospital that God would protect our time and that she would now be ready.

She was awake and smiling when I walked in.   “Lesley, we heard that last night we almost lost you!  But look at you now! Do you think that perhaps God did not want you to die yet? Perhaps He wants to give you another chance to come to Him.”

She said, “I was thinking the same thing.”

I said, “I brought you this little booklet, Would You Like To Know God Personally?            [by Bill Bright: https://www.cru.org/how-to-know-god/would-you-like-to-know-god-personally.html    I thought perhaps we could read it together.”

She said,  “Thank you, but I’m really tired.  Just leave it on my table.  I promise you I’ll read it first thing when I get home.”

I placed it on the table,  but I could not leave it there.   “Lesley, I know you’re tired.  Why don’t you close your eyes and rest while I read it to you.”  She agreed!  When I came to the prayer at the end and began slowly reading it, she began repeating it after me!  When I finished I said, “You repeated the prayer aloud.  Did you mean it?”

“Yes.”

I said, “You did?  Then you are now a child of God!”

“I am?  You mean I’m a Christian?  That’s all there is to it?”

I said, “If you are willing to turn away from your sins and surrender your life to Jesus, then YES!  How do you feel?”

With tears in her eyes she said, “Good. I have a wonderful peace inside.”

Then with excitement in her voice she said, “Hey! We need to share this booklet with Ralph!  He needs God in his life, too!”

The next day we received a phone call that Lesley had hemorrhaged again and died.             She was forty-five.

“Dear God, thank You for preventing me from leaving that booklet on the table.                      Thank You!  Thank You! Thank You!”

How Far Can We Go and Not Sin?

John from Kentucky sent an email via Global Media Outreach:  www.globalmediaoutreach.com

His question: “My girlfriend and I are Christians and we want to wait until marriage for sex.  How far can we go and not sin?  We are both 16.”

“Dear John,  Wrong question! You should not be asking how far into temptation you can go before it becomes sin. Your question should be ‘How can we avoid temptation?’

“If you and your girlfriend are true followers of Jesus, then this is a good time to grow in your walk with Christ. One way to avoid temptation is to avoid spending much time together alone. Group activities are best. It would be good for you to be involved in a church youth group and Bible study. Youth group activities are fun and spiritually healthy.”

John wrote back, “Our church does not have a youth group.”
I wrote, “Go to a church that does.”
“My mom won’t let me go to a different church.”
“Ask your pastor if he can start a youth group in your church.”

John wrote a few days later: “Pray for me. I have an appointment with the pastor on Monday.”
“That’s good news! I’ll pray! Let me know what happens.”

John wrote after the meeting: “Hey! The pastor said we can have a youth group and a Bible study! I’m stoked!”

Two weeks later John wrote, “I’m helping the pastor lead the Bible study. I love what I’m doing.”

A few weeks later John wrote again, “The youth group Bible study is going great and I’m learning a lot. Guess what! Our church is gonna start a youth orchestra. I’m gonna play violin!”

“That’s wonderful, John!  I’m glad to hear it.  How’s your girlfriend?”

John: “I don’t know.  She goes to a different church.  I don’t see her anymore.”

Whew!

“Thank You Lord, for directing our conversations.  Please keep John close to You and guide him in all his ways.”

  • And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.     Matthew 6:13
  • But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur.  This is the second death.”     Revelation 21:8

Sharing Jesus on the Pier

What fun!  Sally and I decided to share Jesus as we walked along the beach promenade and out on the pier.  The sun was shining and there were lots of people strolling or fishing.  Our big pockets were bulging with Christian tracts, in both English and Spanish.

We prayed as we walked, asking God to give us boldness and tact, and to direct us to those people He was drawing to Himself.  When people walked toward us, we’d hold out a tract,  “May I share a little comic with you?  It’s about Jesus!”

It seemed about 50% of those we passed received them with a “Thank you!”  The other 50% either ignored us, said “No thanks!”  Or, “I’m fine.”

It became easier on the pier.  Lots of people fishing.  We’d stop and ask what they were catching.  One guy pulled up a crab that was clinging to his line–I mean, he didn’t even have a crab net!  A young couple shared with us their recipe for fish soup they would make tonight.  We watched a boy chase down a seagull that tried to steal his bait–and then successfully retrieve it from his beak!  Impressive feat!

Each interaction was fun.  Then… “By the way, how would you like a neat little comic about Jesus?” As they’d start flipping through it I’d say,  “Let me ask you a question.  If you were to die today, where do you think you’d go?”   Most didn’t know.  So our next question, “If God were to ask you, ‘Why should I let you into my heaven?’  How would you answer Him?”  Most didn’t know.

It gave us an opportunity to explain that none of us deserves heaven because we are all sinners. Yet Jesus came to die for us to purchase our salvation on the cross.  All we need to do is receive His free gift of salvation and turn from our sins.

Everyone we shared with was receptive to the message of Jesus. Everyone seemed eager to read our tracts. We offered to pray with a few who shared their needs. This they welcomed. We walked back to our cars praising God and praying that He would use every interaction we had and every tract we distributed, for His purpose and His glory.  I believe He will.

  • For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.”   Acts 13:47

Escape from North Korea

Her feet barely touched the dirt road as she fled for her life.  But  Po  suddenly stopped in her tracks.  Her eyes widened, staring at the rushing, icy river separating her life of slavery in North Korea and the Chinese border, which meant freedom.

“Can I do this?” she whispered.  But her fear soon melted into courageous faith. After remembering God’s faithfulness and His presence–sustaining her during her last seven years in a labor camp because of her faith–Po ‘s resolve transformed into steel as she prayed,  “After making it this far Father, I’m certain that you are with me and aiding my escape.”

She slowly sank into the river. The icy burn immediately paralyzed every limb, sending her into shock.  After mere minutes, she drifted out of consciousness, succumbing to the deadly cold.  Desperation led  Po  to this point.  Her captors had tortured her husband to death and starved her daughter until her final breath.  Po knew that it was only thanks to the Lord that she herself hadn’t been counted among the dead as well.

Like other Christians in North Korea,  Po  was willing to risk everything to escape. Even if it meant losing her life.   North Korea has for years held the #1 spot on the World Watch List–because of the Kim dynasty’s goal of not merely suppressing the gospel, but wiping out any trace of it altogether.

In this area of the world, Christians pray with their eyes open. They share the Scriptures through whispers in the middle of the night. And many dare not even tell their own spouses or children about their faith in Christ fearing their families may suffer for their choices.

Suddenly Po awoke with a jolt.  Alive!   “But how…?”  She had somehow drifted to the shore on the other side of the river.  Without a moment more of hesitation, she broke out in praise to her Father, her hands lifted and her heart overjoyed.  She later continued her journey from China to South Korea, where she lives today and shares her story of God’s power, love and faithfulness.

Currently Open Doors has partners on the ground in North Korea who are ministering to persecuted believers like Po, distributing food, medicine, clothes and Bibles. They’re broadcasting Christian radio programs and providing seminary, discipleship and evangelism training to the secret church. They are ministering to trafficked women. Your support is making it all possible.

God Woke Me Up

While studying 2 Corinthians, I became intrigued with 2 Cor 3:14-16.  One night I even dreamed about these verses!  Then God woke me up!  I knew then He wanted me to share an idea He was giving me to help the unsaved.

Most of us know at least one person whom we love that does not know the Lord. Often these people are familiar with the Bible. They’ve heard the gospel message, yet they refuse to believe.

The most important thing we can do is to pray for them and recognize their minds and their hearts are incapable of understanding and loving God and His Word.  Why is that?

In John 6:44  Jesus said, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me, draws him.”  So the first thing we might pray is that God the Father would draw this person to Himself.

The second reason they cannot experience God’s truth and love is from what I read in 2 Corinthians 3:13-16:  “We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to prevent the Israelites from seeing the end of what was passing away. But their minds [mind speaks of understanding] were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away.  Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts [heart speaks of emotions and feelings] But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”

My idea–and I believe it is from the Lord–is that we speak to our loved one.  We might say the following:  “I understand that you and I do not share the same love for God and the Bible.  I know that. But if you ever have a desire to know if there is a God and what His will is for your life, the Bible says first you need to come to Jesus.  Only then will God open your mind and heart. Right now you are closed. I believe someday you will recognize that you need God in your life. You’ll realize you’ve ignored Jesus Christ for too long.

“When that day comes, I’m going to give you three sentences that you can say:                     1. Jesus, I’m calling on Your name.  2. Jesus, if You are real, then show me.  3. Help my unbelief.'”

“Only when you come to Jesus will your heart and mind begin to receive full understanding. Come to Jesus and live.”

  • Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.    Romans 10:13
  • Jesus said, “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me, draws him.”       John 6:44

Standing before her was Jesus!

My friend Jenny looked up and standing before her was Jesus!  But wait, let me back up to the beginning.

Jenny’s mother was a party girl. She had boyfriends and husbands, owned a bar and loved to drink.  Meanwhile, Jenny came to know the Lord Jesus. She shared her new faith with her mom who said,  “Jenny, I’m happy for you.  But it’s not for me.”

Jenny and her husband raised their children to know and love the Lord Jesus.  Years later, her mother–elderly, alone and in poor health–came to live with Jenny.

Jenny would turn on Christian TV before leaving for work in the mornings,  and encourage her mother to watch.  She did!   One evening she told Jenny that something wonderful had happened. She had prayed with a television pastor to receive Jesus into her life.  Jesus had forgiven her sins.  She felt like a new person.

As the weeks passed, Jenny observed her mother’s life markedly change.  She began reading the Bible and praying with Jenny.  Daily she eagerly watched and learned from the pastor-teachers on Christian television.  There was a new peace she had never before known. She began to love Christian music and would sing with Jenny, songs and hymns to Jesus.  Such joy!

Jenny became her caregiver as her health continued to steadily decline.  On the last day of her life, Jenny sat by her mother’s bed stroking her forehead and praying quietly over her.  Her breathing became more labored and Jenny knew the end was near.

Suddenly Jenny looked up and saw Jesus standing at the foot of the bed!  His arms were outstretched. He said nothing but looked directly at Jenny with a gentle smile.

Just then her mother let out one last breath. Jenny looked down at her mother and saw immediately that she had expired.  She looked up at Jesus and He was gone.

There was no doubt in Jenny’s mind:  Jesus had come to receive her mother into His arms and take her to heaven.  Jenny began to weep with joy.  She fell to her knees, lifting her hands to heaven and praised God.  He had shown her mother great love, mercy and grace.  “Thank You, Jesus!  Thank You, Thank You!”

Baby Number Four

The couple was was expecting baby number four.  The ultrasound indicated a girl!  They already had two boys.  A second daughter would round out their family perfectly!

The nursery was decorated in feminine colors and her name, Kathryn Anne, was embroidered, framed and hung on the wall near the crib.

When it was time to deliver, Grandma came to stay with the three older children.  Late that night the expected call came, but the message was unexpected!  “Mother and baby are doing fine…but it’s NOT a girl!  We have a perfect seven-pound boy!”

Early the next morning the kids came running into Grandma’s room. “Is our sister here yet?”

“Yes, the baby is here, but it’s not a girl.  You have a baby brother.”

“What? Oh No!”  The boys had disappointed frowns. Their sister was fighting back tears.

“Listen closely.  We expected a girl. We wanted a girl.  But God knows what is best.  God has decided the best thing for this family now is a wonderful baby boy. God knows what He is doing.  Let’s go to the hospital and see your new brother!”

One hour later they were all smiles as each took a turn sitting on the sofa holding their new brother.  During the drive home the five-year-old said, “Baby Ben doesn’t know anything about Jesus.  We will need to teach him!”

Addendum: The family DID eventually get their girl.  Her name is Kathryn Anne.

  •  I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.                  3 John 1:4
  • Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.    Psalm 127:3
