20/20 Vision : Acts 20:20 - 21
by Rodney Sellers
Acts 20:20 [And] how I kept back nothing that was profitable [unto you], but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house,
Acts 20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
Last night we set out on our Thursday night Soul Wining program and had no idea as to what was in store for us. We did not go to the area our Soul Winning Director had has us visiting because I did not want to mess up his plan. So a trailer park on our bus route came to mind so off we went. There was 7 us and we paired up in two’s and begin to knock the doors. We did just like Paul did from house to house, and guess what? No one was home for the first 5 doors.
This was an area where our bus use to go, but many families moved out and we decided it would be good to go and knock every door and see who we could find. We had prayed before we left and asked the Lord to prepare the hearts and give us wisdom. We had no idea that we would need in the way we did. We had finally had someone answer and it was a lady with a 4yr old she was glad we came by and said she would try and come and bring her child. She told us that she had already excepted Christ and was sure she was going to Heaven. So we got her information and proceeded to the next door.
We knocked and low and behold some head banger guy answered the door and as soon as I told him we were from Victory Baptist, his reply was “I am an Atheist, and I am logical”, so the Lord opened the door and we said “Wow and atheist, it’s been a long time since I have talked to one, so by the way what makes you and atheist?”
Long story short we went back to Genesis and talked about intelligent design and how everything is just a bunch of nothing is not logical, but the fact that someone intelligent had to make the human brain. We talked tree’s mud puddles and so on, and before it was over the Lord had began to work in his heart. We used an illustration of how if a man was drowning in a mud hole and you handed him a limb. We asked him whose fault would it be if the guy refused the help and drowned. The man quickly said it would be the guy who rejected the help.
We gave him our testimonies and how the Lord had saved us and what he had done in our hearts. Then we told him how glad we were when the Lord reached out for us we no longer rejected His help.
The Holy Spirit was working on this guys heart in an amazing way. I asked him if I could show him what was shown to me over 18 years ago and he said yes. You could tell he was taking in all that was said and he even let us pray for him. His head was bowed and hands clasped together. He was very thankful that we stopped by and said he would read the tract that we left with him.
His name is Robert so if you think about this story please say a prayer for him. He was an atheist when we met him and the Lord fixed all of that. The only thing left is for Robert to accept Christ as his savior and become a child of God.
Paul’s 20/20 “Act’s 20:20” vision caused him to go from house to house spreading the good news that Jesus Saves.
The plan still works today, they only thing is most people have lost their sight. I urge you to pray and asked the Lord to open your eyes and see the field that is ripe unto harvest.
