A CHILD LIKE FAITH
Ever notice how a "new born-again" Christian seems to be able to "believe" God or God finds it easier to work "thru" a new Christian ! Somewhere in our "growth" we lose that "edge" .
I got saved in June of 1967 and a month later drove to R.I. and witnessed to my folks, who upon hearing me , thought I had gone "mad" and looked at me like I had 3 eyeballs. I went back to N.Y. for the next few months, The Lord worked and Mon and Dad got saved in Sept. of 1967. I moved back home in October. The 2nd nite home, I had a dream of a family friend we used to visit many years earlier. The dream was of "Janet" crying out for someone to tell her about Jesus !. In the morning, I said to my mom , we need to go and find Janet Perry, she wants to know about Jesus ! Well, my mom thought I was over the edge ! - She said , we don't even know if they live in the old home still plus she is married by now and moved on -- I said , Mom , I know God wants me to go and talk to her !. Reluctantly my mom agreed to go with me- we drove to the old site and sure enough , they didn't live there anymore -with some digging around , we found another place where they did live and I got the new address for Janet who is now married . We find the place and knock on the door -- Janet answers the door and is shocked to see old friends -- We walk in and I said , Janet, The Lord told me last nite that U wanted to know about Jesus -- Janet's eyes get big and she bursts out crying -- This is what she said -- My life was empty and I knew there had to be more, last nite I cried all night for God to have someone to show me about Jesus ---- I told her how I got saved and my mom and we led her to SAVING FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST -- we were brand new Christians ourselves but God was able to use us ----- passing-thru
