I Was Wondering About That Believing Part – by Craig
While at the airport over the weekend I met a woman named Curtis. That’s the name that was on her shirt, it was her last name. Anyway, she was working the snack shop and noticing how cheerful she was, I felt compelled to ask her if she had given her life to Christ.
She said, “No. But I’ve been thinking about that.” I said, “What’s keeping you from Him?” She replied, “I’m just trying to be good enough and I don’t know if I’m there yet.” With excitement I said, “The good news is that you will never be good enough! He’s not asking you to be good enough; He wants you to receive what’s already been done for you. And you do that by faith. You believe in your heart God raised Jesus from the dead and confess, with your mouth, Jesus as Lord and you WILL be saved.”
It was funny....she smiled and said, “I was wondering about that believing part!” I shared with her about the forgiveness He offers for our sins and His Spirit by which we can live life. It was a wonderful moment with Curtis and Jesus in a simple snack shop at the airport. She made a profession of faith that morning amidst the overpriced energy drinks, candy bars and magazines.
I wonder how many people today are also wondering? I pray you’ll run in to a “wonderer” today. And if that’s the case, please know that most likely Jesus will be there too.
