Waiting to know God

Posted by on 06.10.2014 in Uncategorized

No one answered the door. We moved on to the next house and rang the doorbell. As we were waiting, a woman opened the previous door and poked her head out. I smiled, went over and handed her an invitation to the upcoming Simplicity evangelistic series. We talked a little about the Bible series, and then, when a little girl came to the door, we showed the woman the programs that the center offers for children and youth. She got very excited about these activities because she babysits and has two teenage daughters. She was especially interested in the teen activities because, in the past year, she had started attending a Seventh-day Adventist Church and wanted her daughters to go to church, too. They don’t usually go with their mother because they don’t speak Spanish.

At this point we told her we were Seventh-day Adventists. She got very excited. She had been praying for God to open a way for her daughters to come to church and to get answers to all of their questions about God. She has only been studying for a year and the girls ask a lot of questions about the Bible that she doesn’t know how to answer. They don’t believe in God, and she has been praying that her whole family would know God and go to church together. Before leaving, we had prayer with the mother and met her oldest daughter. The lady told us we were an answer to prayer.

There are so many people who are waiting and longing to know God. They are praying for a way to meet Him, and when we are faithful to God He will use us to meet those people. We are to play a part in sharing the gospel, and it is such a faith-building experience to see God use us to tell others about Jesus!
