John has been thinking of the redemption provided by Jesus. One day, while leaving the train station, a local young man named Shane followed John asking to “party.” Instantly the flashbacks of seeking satisfaction in that way of life crossed the screen of John's mind.
Without a thought the words rolled out, "You want to party, and it makes you happy for a short time. Would you like to know how you can have joy forever?"
The man's eyes got big, "Yes!"
John shared some of his testimony and walked him through the basics of the gospel from John 3. The young man prayed and asked Jesus to be his Lord. Since then he has been talking with his Muslim friends. He has been confused by the polemic debates. He would love to stay a Muslim, but admits that he is unable to save himself (as per the demands of the five pillars). Today John re-explained the substitution that takes place when Jesus takes our sin and lays on us His righteousness. It's a thrill to see the look on his face when he gets it.
