In Miami , I spoke with Joe, an elderly Jewish man who has heard the Gospel several times from some faithful Christians.

Joe kept returning to the subject of the horrible world conditions and questioned why, if there was a God, would He allow such terrible things. But Joe finally did admit that God was not causing the problems; he decided it must be man’s fault, caused by greedy and hateful hearts. I asked him what he thought would help solve the problems.

"Well," the old man answered, "I guess people’s hearts would have to change. They’d have to get rid of the greed and hate!"

Suddenly his eyes lit up as he realized what he’d said.

"But that’s what you said Jesus can do, isn’t it?" he exclaimed. "If only I had the faith to believe that!"

Joe is closer than ever to accepting the Lord. Please pray that God will grant him that gift of faith.
