Christ ministered when He saw needs.Â Likewise, we must be ready anytime to minister.Â For example:
I was in a coffee shop when Don, an EMT, asked me, â€œAre you the one that just opened the new funeral home and ambulance business?â€Â Don became a very dependable EMT working all hours of the day and night. Â
One day Don and his wife, Susie, entered the funeral home.Â I immediately sensed that something was different.Â Then he blurted out, â€œJohn, I have cancer and I havenâ€™t long to live.Â Iâ€™m here to make my arrangements.â€Â So we did.
As the weeks progressed Donâ€™s condition deteriorated and I was called to transport him in my ambulance several times.Â On the last transport he was too weak to talk. Â
After getting him in bed, Susie whispered to me, â€œDon would like you to pray for him.â€Â I sensed that his time was short and I didnâ€™t want to say the wrong thing.Â â€œGod help me,â€ I prayed silently.
I grabbed Donâ€™s hand and prayed, â€œHeavenly Father, when we come to this point in our life, only you can help us.â€Â DON SQUEEZED MY HAND.Â After each sentence the same thing happened. Â This was his way of affirming his belief in what I was saying.
John 3:16 (NIV) was especially meaningful then, â€œFor God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.â€
An hour later, the phone rang.Â Don was gone.
It pays to be ready at anytime to minister to someone as Christ did.
â€œThank You that Your Word promises us that whoever calls upon Your name will be saved.â€Â (Acts 2:21 NIV)Â
Sharing Christ is my purpose and passion.Â
