The plane was jam packed- yet an empty seat was right next to me. Ahh, I profusely thanked the Lord, for only He knew how exhausted I really was. I took my boots off… laid my head back, closed my eyes and started to praise God for His graciousness.
Twenty minutes into flight a man came up and asked me, “ Can I sit here? There’s a screaming baby back there.”
What could I say? “Sure” and closed my eyes. Immediately he opened a conversation, “What was your purpose for travel this weekend?” I gave the quickest answer possible… “I was speaking at a conference.”
“Oh? What were you speaking about?” He asked. I then knew, this was not going to be a flight to sleep and replied, “I’m a Christian speaker.”
His eyes got big and a huge smile overcame his face as he pulled his face into mine, “So, you speak about Jesus?”
I said, “Yes, I do. Do you know Him?”
The smile cleared off his face and he said, “I do. Tell me what you know about him.”
I was tired and wanted to see where he was coming from so I said, “You first. You tell me what you know of Him.” While he talked, I realized that he didn’t know Him.
He then asked, “Why do you believe in Jesus? What is your proof that He is the Son of the Living God? I have read many books, and none convince me that Jesus is God’s Son.”
Instantly, Luke 24 and Acts 1:8 flashed before my mind, “You will be My witnesses. . . even unto the ends of the earth.”
I was being called to be an eye witness.
Everyone sitting around us listened. I wanted him to lower his tone- but he didn’t.He asked about heaven and hell… the purpose of baptism… the inspired, infallible Word of God… He covered all bases for himself and all those around him- on the packed airplane.
We are each called to teach them to observe all things that He commanded and He promised to be with us always even to the end of the age. GLORY. AMEN!!
When I stood up to get off the plane, passengers started to shake my hand.
People are watching and listening to
us. . . What will they hear?
