Witnessing Without

Can a person who has never heard of Christ and who has no Biblical background hear and believe the Gospel? After what I saw while on a short term mission trip last week, I can definitely say “yes!”. A young man on our team, John L., had an opportunity to share with a sixteen year old man who grew up in a poverty stricken area where many of the children and adults are illiterate. As I watched, the Holy Spirit enabled John to tell the story of Christ, beginning with creation and concluding with the resurrection. When John presented the plan of salvation, the young man gladly accepted the news that God loved him! I saw a life transformed by the sheer power of Christ as John led this young man to receive the gift of Eternal Life in Christ. If a person so without traditional Bible knowledge can so readily hear and believe, what are we waiting for here in the world where most people already have the basics of Bible knowledge? Surely they too can hear and respond to the message of John 3:16!
