Teresa was a 50-year-old woman who enjoyed sharing her Christian faith with everyone.
Teresa, a nurse, took advantage of opportunities to talk about the Lord when new patients were admitted into the hospital where she was employed. “As a nurse, it’s my job to help bring healing to their bodies,” she told Thomas, her husband. “As a Christian, I must share how Jesus saved me from sin, healed my body and helps me with everything I face in life.”
“I’m very proud of you,” said Thomas. “Many Christians are timid when it comes to sharing their faith.”
On her way to work every morning, Teresa stopped at the local diner for breakfast. As Teresa entered the eatery, Terri, the waitress, asked, “The usual, Teresa?”
“Sure,” Teresa replied.
Teresa removed her jacket and sat down next to a woman who seemed depressed. “What’s the matter?” Teresa asked.
“I’m a bit down this morning,” the woman sobbed. “My husband came home from work last night and said he wants a divorce. We’ve been married for 20 years. He’s my whole life. I don’t know what I’ll do without him. By the way, my name is Tabitha, but you can call me Tabby.”
“My name is Teresa, but my friends call me Ter.”
“Glad to meet you, Ter.”
“Tabby, has anyone ever told you about Jesus?”
“Oh, I accepted Jesus into my heart when I was about 10 years old. Jesus was everything to me until I met Thad. I feel head over heels in love with Thad, and we were married several months later.”
“So you sort of forgot about the Lord for the past few years?”
“That’s about the size of it,” Tabitha admitted.
“Why not renew your relationship with Jesus right now? His arms are open wide for you. In fact, I’ll be glad to pray with you now right now.”
“Thanks, Ter. You’re a real friend. I know I just met you, but I feel as if I’ve known you all my life.”
“Father, I ask for your forgiveness,” Tabitha prayed. “I know I’ve sinned in drawing away from you. I confess my sin. Please forgive me.”
“Any time you sin, just come to me,” whispered the Lord. “I am always willing to forgive you.”
Terri returned with Teresa’s breakfast. “Thanks,” said Teresa.
“Your boldness is refreshing,” said Terri. “About a month ago, you told me how much Jesus loves me. Last night, I knelt beside my bed and asked Him to come into my heart.”
To Terri, the Lord whispered, “Thank you for inviting me into your heart. I will never leave or forsake you.”
“I know that, Lord,” said Terri. “That’s one of my favorite Bible verses.”
“I always honor my Word,” said the Lord. “It is impossible for me to lie!”
