I have a friend that I have worked with for several years; he is a contractor that we use during outages and heavy workload times. His name is Adam; and Adam has been in turmoil most of his adult life, bills and other issues. He doesn't understand why he cannot get himself straightened out. Michael has listened to Adam many times and shared the gospel.
A few weeks ago Michael called Adam in to help on the job; again he started sharing all of things going on in his life. He had to move out of his rent house and his truck was repossessed. Michael was busy and gave very little attention to him, but said "That is bad."
At noon Michael call Adam over and said "Let's go get lunch." Again he began to rehearse his problems but said "I went to church last Sunday for the first time." Michael began to share with him saying, "It is not attending church; it is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ." As they pulled up at McAllister's, Adam broke down and began to cry wondering why he had all these problems. They spent 30 or 40 minutes together in the truck as Michael again share with him, saying that the Christian life is a total surrender. He told Adam that he could not do anything right; you need Jesus Christ as the head of every aspect of your life, not just in you time of need. Adam said, "I want that!" Michael told him;
"As you moves closer to the Lord your family will be drawn to the light that came from you." They prayed together. Michael will continually stay in touchwith Adam.
