Krista was a college student at a secular university. She wrote to tell me she’d been praying that God would use her to reach out to non-Christians with His love. But she wasn’t sure how to go about doing it. Well, it didn’t take long for God to answer her prayer in an unexpected way!
One afternoon in her dorm room, Krista was studying while listening to some Christian music. Suddenly, there was a knock on the door. A fellow resident wanted to heat up something in her microwave. Krista let her in and the girl made a comment about the music. This opened up a conversation between them about Christian music, religion, and God. Krista then asked the girl if she’d like to join her at church that Sunday, and she accepted!
The Lord can use anything to draw people to Himself. We just have to be prayerful, and open to however He wants to do it. He used a simple thing like Christian music to open the door for Krista to share her faith. So don’t underestimate God. And don’t forget to pray! And keep your eyes open. Remember James 5: “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
