"I would like to see you guys in action," commented Michael M., a Jewish man in his forties.
I had been distributing broadsides on a busy corner in New York City , but I briefly stepped out of the flow of pedestrian traffic and began a dialogue with him.
Mr. M. told me that he had a desire to attend a Jews for Jesus fellowship. Although he declared he was an atheist, he seemed open to the Gospel message. He said that each Saturday he looked in the paper and went to the church service that had the most interesting message title.
We talked a little while longer about God, and before he again became part of the pedestrian traffic, I took down his address.
Soon after this first meeting, I sent Mr. M. some Gospel information and a personal letter. In the letter I wrote that it was important for him to believe that God exists and be open to Him before anything I could say would be beneficial to him. I told him his efforts should be directed to search out and find God Himself, rather than to rely on different religious observances or organizations. I closed the letter by suggesting that if he was interested in further discussing how a person can enter into a personal relationship with God, we could get together sometime in the near future.
About one week later, I just "happened" to bump into Mr. M. again in Penn Station. He told me that he had appreciated receiving my letter and that he would be interested in getting together at an appointed time in the future.
Mr. M. does have an interest in knowing there is a God and I will be contacting him again. Please pray that he will come to have a relationship with God through the Messiah, Jesus.
