Being a Christian comes with responsibility, and that is to share the message of salvation and redemption with others. In addition we are called to lead people to a point of decision, to either accept or reject Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour.
We are all instruments used by God to complete His work. It is not our actions that save that person, instead it is our ability to allow God to work through us to bring people to Jesus. So being sensitive to the Holy Spirit and obeying God’s prompting is so important. In this story this man did just that.
A chef had just finished service for the night, and got talking to the manager of the pub where he worked. The manager was hoping to experiment with a Ouija board after work, but the chef explained that this was not a good idea. Instead they talked and the chef shared his testimony with him and what God had done in his life.
After cleaning up the chef went home “God was all over me about this guy” he said. The urge was so strong he decided to go back to work to speak to him. He waited around till the manager had finished his shift and then spoke to him “I really feel this is your day of salvation.”The moment he said it, the sky lit up bright blue. It was a crystal clear night. A clear and remarkable miracle.
“The holy spirit confirmed to me that it was God that did that,” the chef said. “And I sat in my car and lead him to the Lord, said the salvation prayer, and gave him one of my Bibles.”
“I felt God say to me, ‘Bring him home!”

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in Him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on Him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” – Romans 10:9-13 NIV
