Wilson, a successful Hong Kong businessman, had a degree in engineering and became an architect. He married a Chinese woman, a non-practicing Buddhist like him. Within a few years, he had two daughters–and an affair on the side. Then things began to fall apart.
He discovered a business partner had cheated him out of ten million American dollars. Furious, Wilson resolved to murder the man. Then, Wilson’s wife found out about his affair. Desperate and without hope, Wilson decided to end his life. As he thought about how to shoot himself, Wilson saw a city bus go by with our festival advertisement on the side. It said, “The Hope of Man.”
Wilson thought, “Boy, do I need hope!” He came to our event, accepted Jesus Christ, and became a whole new man. Months later, Wilson even fell in love with his wife all over again! Now, he and his wife are both believers. And all the glory goes to the Lord! 2 Corinthians 5:18 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” If one of your friends is in trouble, share this verse to him. Explain to him the message of hope – that each one of us can be made new in Christ!
