Recently, I was able to spend about six hours with a Muslim friend. From the beginning, I turned the conversation to spiritual matters as I asked about the upcoming Islamic feast. Throughout the night, this conversation continued. At one point, he asked me what I liked to read, so I told him I read through God’s Word every year. “Just once?” he asked. “Matthew, Mark, Luke and John?” I told him there were many more books than the gospel accounts, and the Lord opened up a door with my friend’s follow up question, “What do the other books say?” I couldn’t contain my smile.
I proceeded to walk him through creation to Christ. After some stories from the Gospels I asked him, “Who do you say that Jesus is?” He replied that he was definitely a prophet, but he wasn’t sure yet if he was more than that. “I need more information before I can say he is God’s Son.” Pray that the Lord would open this man’s heart and bring him into the Kingdom.
