"My head is spinning..."

Josh, a young man from Louisiana, was spending time working in Texas during summer. Josh had no idea that he was about to be confronted with the truth of the gospel in such a powerful way today on the first hour of The Way of the Master Radio.

It was just a normal day for Josh when we arrived at his job and we asked him to be on The Way of the Master Radio program. He was extremely eager to do so.

After the segment, Josh was sweating and looked stunned. "My head is spinning after talking to him." Josh explained, while referring to Todd Friel (Host of The Way of the Master Radio). "He really asked a lot of good questions."

Prior to going on the air, Josh said he was open to all kinds of religions, and that he believed there to be many ways to God. After he spoke with Todd and we followed up with him, things changed. We explained to him that scripture says Jesus is the only way to the Father (John 14:6) and he began to realize that he didn't believe there were "many ways", but rather deep down he knew Jesus was the only way.

Emilio and I urged him to examine himself to see if he was in the faith. We gave him examples of true marks of a Christian life and left him with a strong exhortation to read Scripture and to examine his fruit and see if he has fruit worthy of repentance.

The good news is that Josh just "happens" to live in the same city we live in, so we invited him out to our church and hope and pray he joins us one day soon. But if we never see him again we trust that today he heard the Gospel message loud and clear.

I am so sorry I missed this one! I have that same feeling when I listen to Todd. I get so many great insights into biblical truth. It helps so much with my walk with the Lord! I don't agree with him 100% of the time, its more like 99% but regardless he's great. Thanks!
