A FRIEND DID NOT WANT THE NEW TESTAMENT

 

I wasn’t a born-again Christian, but I used to read the Bible in the Catholic version. Despite being brought up in a very religious Catholic family, my parents taught their children to read the Bible, and I used to read it with a certain frequency, though I didn’t understand anything. On one occasion a friend from work got a ‘little Bible’ from the Gideons at school and gave it to me. She wasn’t a born-again Christian either. I kept it. I owned a beauty salon in a commercial area – almost everyone there was a born-again Christian and they always talked to me about Jesus, but I didn’t care. One day, I began to meditate about it and became interested in knowing Jesus. Was He really as wonderful as people said He was? It was then I felt interested in reading that ‘little Bible’ so well kept. I began to like reading it. The Lord Jesus started to give me understanding and I began to learn more and I feel a different relationship because I had peace in my heart. Soon aſter I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour.”

Aſter a while I had the opportunity to witness to a neighbour. She cried a lot. I asked if she also wanted to accept Jesus, and she said yes! I gave her that New Testament, so she could read it too. Today we are both born-again Christians, serving at Life International Church, announcing Jesus to the lost – thanks to the distributions that Gideons do at schools. My friend did not want that New Testament, but I did, and Jesus changed my life! The Gideons International
