One Way…Jesus (pt 2)

One way…Jesus (pt 1)

We explained to her that we had met Jerry through the singles ministry at church. She seemed astonished and became very inquisitive about His church attendance. She didn’t waste anytime asking us if we knew rather or not her Uncle had become a Christian. So we begin to share with her how Jerry had accepted Jesus as his Savior, and had become a faithful member of the singles ministry. The look on her face was priceless. I remember hearing her inhale in surprise.

It was such a thrill for me and the other group leader to be able to share the good news about Jerry with her. Although we hadn’t known Jerry very long, being able to assure her that he had chosen to give his heart to Jesus brought us so much joy.

She briefly looked around the room. Then she showed us the small Bible that she had in her hand. She said she knew that many of the family members were unsaved, and that she had asked the Lord for a chance to share His Word with them. She opened the little Bible and showed us several of the scriptures that she had highlighted. We exchanged a few more words with her, before she moved on to speak to others in the crowd.

I glanced over at my friend Jerry and admired the gold cross that he was holding in his hand. Although his old physical body was lying there lifeless in the casket, I knew for certain that he was now in the presence of the Lord, with his new heavenly body. No more pain, no more hurt, and no more divorce.

I’m thankful the Lord allowed us to be standing in the right place at the right time so that we could meet Jerry’s niece. I was delighted to be a part of a moment that was so special to her…finding out about her Uncle’s new life in Jesus Christ. Jerry lost something valuable when his marriage dissolved, but he found something priceless, when he gained eternal life through Jesus.

Some people say there are many ways to God, but Jesus said this and I believe Him…

John 14:6 NIV, “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

There is nothing that is too hard for God. He knows exactly what we need and when we need it. He knew what Jerry needed. He’s knows what you and I need. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.

One Way…Jesus.

  1. This is such a wonderful story. I am so glad that your friend Jerry find peace with God in his latter days. It is interesting that he was 70 yrs and was part of the singles ministry. The person in charge of the singles ministry at my church excluded older people. The age limit was 20 to 40. Devorcees, widows and older folks were not welcome. Suffice it to say this ministry at church did not last long. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks Beverley! You’re welcome. I’ll always remember Jerry. That’s too bad they cut if off at 40. The difference in age and life experiences allows everyone to learn from one another. But if they wanted to narrow things down they should have tried starting one for people over 40. One time they also had a senior ministry for 50 and up but it went away which is why we were all together.

  2. There are so many pathways lit with dim, false light. Its SO important to know the true light of Jesus so that we will not be led astray by an attempted replicated source! God bless. I just blogged about my experience on this too!
