Daily Radio: Ready, Set, Jump posted by John Sorensen on May 21, 2015
What if a friend of yours was on the roof of his house, so depressed that he was ready to commit suicide?
I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Plan A was a rope and a jump off the roof. And just in case Plan A didn’t work he had Plan B…a live grenade in his pocket. Well this really happened to high school student, Kamil, but he forgot one detail. He left his cell phone in his pocket. And about the time he was ready to jump, it rang. And of all things Kamil answered it! It was his friend. And when his friend learned what Kamil was up to, he begged and pleaded with him to get off that roof, that he had wonderful, freeing news for him. Amazingly, Kamil came down, heard the Gospel and his life changed, from depression to joy.
Kamil’s story makes a strong point that believers need to be – as I Peter 3:15 says – “ready always to give an answer for the hope that is in you.” Are you ready? You can be, visit us at ShareLife.today.
