How Sarah's journey to God is bringing others along with her
Tue 23 Apr 2024



In the finance industry where faith is often scarce, I've had the privilege of working with my manager, Anthony, for two years.

A self-proclaimed non-believer, Anthony has witnessed my own journey to Christianity over the past year. When I first started exploring my faith, I assured him, "Don't worry, I'm not going to convert."

Yet, as the verse goes in Matthew 7:7-8, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”, and I did find God.

Since becoming a believer, I've immersed myself in the Bible, eager to share its wisdom with everyone. During our work related travels, I've discussed the Gospel with Anthony and even brought along "spare" books for him to read, just in case Wi-Fi wasn't available. So far, he's read "Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis and is currently reading my copy of "Reason for God" by Timothy Keller.

Though not yet a believer, Anthony has started to notice something different about Christians, as he finds himself increasingly drawn to people whose common denominator is their Christian faith.

Several months ago, I casually invited Anthony to church, saying, "You're more than welcome to join me!" To my surprise, he expressed interest and actually attended a service two weeks ago. The sermon focused on God's justice and had a profound emotional impact on him. During our coffee catch up yesterday, he mentioned he's eager to attend another service after returning from his annual leave.

I'd like to request prayers for Anthony, asking that God continues to work in his heart, drawing him closer to faith.
