I had prison ministry last Sunday, with three inmates attending – Tim, Jake, and Jake. I had a sense from the Holy Spirit that something special was going to happen, and it did. There were two true believers who came in the door and three who left. The middle Jake came to the Lord near the end of our Bible study.
You might be asking how that came about. How could Jake be one thing and a few minutes later something else entirely? Some time back, the Holy Spirit showed me how to explain the gospel of salvation in a visual way on a chalkboard, from the fall of Adam and Eve to Jesus’ death on the cross to the decision all believers must make. It was not my doing. And He brought to my attention the A-B-Cs of salvation that I explained to Jake. It was not my doing. And He led me to a prayer that Jake also prayed, based on the A-B-Cs. Again, not my doing. On a scale of 1 to 1000, Jake’s conversion was the Holy Spirit 999 and Pat 1.
