Boaz Baptist Chronicles

Yesterday, when I came out of the hospital from weighing myself, I saw an Amish man who was standing there waiting for his wife and newborn baby to come out. (He had bags of “newbie” diapers and two flats of Similac flanking his sides.) Well, I gave him one of my soap tracts and asked him if he was born again. He said he didn’t know. The Lord let me freely give him the Gospel and talk to him about the difference between religion and salvation. I could see, behind his shy demeanor, conviction—conviction not from my expertise in soulwinning techniques, but conviction from him seeing Jesus Christ for the first time, not as a religious tenant to belonging to the Amish, but as the one who bore his sins on Calvary.
No, he didn’t get saved right then, but he walked away from that hospital with the new birth of his fifth child and an understanding of what Jesus meant when he said “ye must be born again.”
Please, earnestly, pray for “Noah” to be saved. He might not be far from the kingdom of God. (Mark 12:34)
