For the kingdom!
Thank you for your love for Africa and prayer for His kingdom in Africa.
It is so privilege to share with you how God’s kingdom is established daily in our life. God’s kingdom is eternal! His kingdom is around us and in us. Let us taste, look and enjoy his kingdom, and proclaim His kingdom.
There is a young German man, a brother, Simon. He worked with us here in South Africa for about 4 months around 5 years ago. Back then he was a law student in his final year who had come here to South Africa for some job experience, but thereafter he decided to do some community service before he returned to Germany, so joined us here in Cape Town. During the 4 months, he spent in South Africa, God touched his heart, and He molded him into a new man. He changed so much that his visiting parents saw how his heart had changed to seek after God.
Simon and I talked often on the phone after he returned to Germany and he would tell me how he went to school everyday for the kingdom. He is a faithful servant of God.
During one of our calls, Simon asked me to pray for him. His request was that he would be allowed to use a room with his professor in their graduation trip the following week. This was an odd request so I asked him why? His reasoning was simple. He wanted to share the Gospel with his professor who did not yet know our saviour’s Love.
A week later, we talked again. He had just returned from his trip so out of curiosity I asked him if he had shared a room with his professor? He sighed, and said that it was a pity he did not get to do so, but he also confessed that it was all in God’s plans. He explained that at the trip the vibe was to go out and have drinks but Simon sat on the bed of his room reading the bible. His roommate asked him what he was doing?
Once Simon told him that he was reading the bible, his friend sat down besides him and asked him to tell him about the bible. So Simon told me that he and his friend sat all night talking of the bible. The next day Simon’s roommate invited everyone into their room and began to share the gospel. Simon and I together thanked God for His grace and love; Simon also thanked God for using him.
The joy in his voice filled my heart with joy!
Simon goes to school for the kingdom!
He meets his friends for the kingdom!
He looks at the fellow students on the Bench for the kingdom!
He loves His kingdom, His people, and His word!
This is the kingdom that is in those who know of the love in his word!
Lord, lead us to your kingdom! we are here.
For the kingdom!
