A new creation
One fateful day, as James sat contemplating on a playground bench, a stranger approached him with a determined look in his eyes. This stranger, David, was a firm believer in the existence of God, and he noticed something in James that moved him to reach out.
"What's the point of believing in something you can't see?" James murmured with unpleasant tone.
David smiled warmly, unpersuaded by James's doubt. "Sometimes, it's not about seeing with your eyes, but feeling with your heart," he said. So began a conversation that would impact both of their lives forever.
They spent hours debating the existence of God, digging into philosophical arguments and issues of eternity. James threw every challenge he could generate at David, attempting to break through his spiritual armor. But David stood firm, his conviction steadfast as he spoke stories of hope, miracles, and the power of faith in Christ.
Despite his best efforts to resist, he was persuaded to the clear truth in David's opinions, he recognized that his search for purpose had brought him to the doorstep of something bigger than himself.
With tears in his eyes, James dropped his head and gave in to the overpowering presence of God's love. David prayed for him and he was saved, a new creation from that moment.
