This week I had one of the most unexpected encounters with a non-believer, who was once a believer. Yup, you read it right. A former christian, who is now on the road to become Muslim. The crazy part is I don’t even know how we got on the topic, but God is using me big time these days.
As he talked about his reasons, all I could think about was how heartbroken Jesus must feel from his decision. I felt this same pain. Growing up and, in my case, going to a christian school from Pre-k to 8th grade, you are taught to memorize so many different scriptures. So as he’s talking all the signature verses are flowing through me. The one that is at the top of the list is John 14:6 – Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father, BUT BY ME.
In the conversation, I asked questions and witnessed to him explaining that there is no other way to the God, Yahweh, Jehovah, the King of Kings, but through Jesus Christ. Sadly, he had his mind made up that the road he was on was a sure fire way to God. This experience rocked me to my core and woke me up to the fact that some christians can disconnect themselves so far from God, they allow the enemies subtleties to creep in and overtake their entire life.
I’ve come to a place that there is no more time for games as believers. We must stay in God’s word and pray to keep ourselves tightly connected to the Holy One. God’s word is clear and direct, sharper than a two-edged sword and it gives us everything we need to fight this fight. No matter how good different religions show themselves to be, remember what sets us apart. A direct relationship to God himself through Jesus Christ.
Trust and know that as a warrior for Christ, I am praying for that man to have an encounter that will set him free. I did my part and I know God is orchestrating events in his life to do the rest.
Christ followers, stay encouraged and never forget we already won for we are victorious in Jesus.
Until next Thursday, be blessed and GetUp and GetFit in God!
