Two Divine Appointments
An unusual thought crossed Gail’s mind.
Always passionate about getting out to the local park to share her faith,
Gail struggled with not really feeling like going out that day.
As Gail pondered and envisioned so many people lost and not knowing Jesus, she began to be compelled to get outside to share her Gospels of John. She went out later than her regular time, but God’s perfect timing was in place. She was to have two Divine appointments.
God was sending Gail to meet Chuck who was seated on a park bench.
Gail approached and simply offered him the Gospel with the cover “Finding Your Way.
At first, he declined.
Chuck confided to Gail that he believed in Jesus, but he did not believe in church. They conversed for quite a while and Chuck revealed that he used to attend a church, but he had not been in a long time. He was counting on his good works to get him into Heaven.
Gail explained God’s plan of salvation and Christ’s death on the cross for Chuck.
He opened-up that he had been taking care of his wife with terminal cancer for 10 years.
Gail offered to speak with her on the phone. Chuck then accepted prayer and the Gospel.
As Gail parted from Chuck and made her way down some steps, she heard someone ask if she needed help. Gail stopped and asked his name, as she simply offered him a pocket Gospel.
Jessie, a 21 year old Community Service Officer in town, gladly took the Gospel.
He had no Biblical background and was willing to listen to The Plan of Salvation.
He wanted to pray and trust Jesus as his Savior!
Jessie told Gail that he had never heard “born again” clarified the way she explained it to him.
Gail was happy she had not followed her desire to stay in that day, but instead listened to God’s prodding to keep his two Divine appointments.
