As I returned into my hotel room after the day’s work on an assignment in another state, all that was next on my mind was my bed. I got in, dressed down and was having my lunch when I heard a knock on my door. It was the hotel house-keeper who brought my clothes – washed and ironed. I thanked him, and just as he was about to leave, the Holy spirit told me “He needs Jesus”. Immediately, I welcomed him back to the room that I will like to know him more. This he gladly accepted and sat on the chair. We discussed in details from his career, his business, his family, his struggles with life…… then the real one – eternity! I then asked him a question which I summarised as “What are you doing with Jesus”? To this, he immediately became cold.
After sharing the love of Jesus with him and identifying with his struggle amidst the two opposing polars of eternity – sin and righteousness/purity, I told him “the closer you are to Jesus, the farther you are to the devil/sin”. He wept softly as he admitted his need for Jesus and his struggle to take a stand for him. I further shared with him the provision of Grace in Jesus, and invited him to the offer of Calvary. This he accepted, surrendered and dedicated his life to Jesus as we held hands confessed and prayed together.
As this new year begins to roll by, I ask you too “What are you doing with Jesus”?
