That’s when they saw a young man sitting alone on a bench.
Led by the Spirit, the two approached him and prayerfully considered ways to bring up the gospel. God opened a door to share the whole message—creation, fall, redemption through Christ’s death and resurrection, and the hope of an eternity spent with God.
Sitting on the bench that afternoon, the young man became of believer and received his first portion of his new faith’s sacred text—a copy of the New Testament.
That night he stayed up until two in the morning with an eagerness to know more about the God who came down in the Person of Christ to save him. This new believer’s zealous faith continues today as he meets with Carl to learn more about faithfully following Jesus.
