Filling The Emptiness For A Colleague
Eugeniy was feeling a bit discouraged while on a recent business trip.
He had begun to share the Gospel with some of his colleagues.
He had been talking to a brick wall, as they weren’t interested at all in what he had to say.
The next day they participated in an outdoor corporate picnic. Everyone was socializing and laughing, so Eugeniy joined in and struck up a conversation with another colleague. They broached several topics, and at one point their discussion turned to focus on God.
Eugeniy’s colleague said that despite all the success he had experienced,
there was a terrible emptiness in his soul which he couldn’t fill with anything.
Eugeniy gleefully told him, “I know the answer to fill that emptiness”
and began to introduce him to Jesus, as he opened the Gospel of John.
Under his tough strong disguise, this man had issues he couldn’t resolve and Eugeniy showed him in the Gospel that Jesus would fill his emptiness. The pocket Gospel had the words, “There is Happiness” on the cover and the man said he wanted that happiness to fill his soul, so he prayed the prayer to believe in the Lord as his Savior. Eugeniy recalled,
The following day I saw him reading the pocket Gospel right there at work.
As the days went by, he continued to read the Gospel and his life started changing.
Jesus filled his empty soul and answered his questions.
