Nuggets – Motivated by love

English: Jesus, followed by Simon Peter and Andrew

Just a taxi-driver in Singapore (that is what some rich and middle class people say ) but he is one motivated by the love of Jesus since he found the Lord.

He was a sinner and unhappy family man. However, he used to send his elderly  aunt to church every Sunday, make his rounds and pick her up at the appointed time after service for home.  Each Sunday he would be invited to come in to join the service but he did not accept as his taxi meter would not be clicking if he  stopped to attend the service.  However, he felt he had to accept the invitation  to attend one Sunday and it was then he accepted the Lord as his personal Saviour.

His wife is still not a believer, but  his daughter attends church with Andrew(not his real name). With a prayer on his lips, he begins his daily taxi route and carries a bundle of Christian tracts in his taxi. He  hands a tract out to every passenger rich or poor, intimidating or not, in broken English or in several of the Chinese dialects,  from morning to night. The giving of the tract initiates his personal testimony  of salvation which he ardently shares with all and sundry without fear or favour and only in the love for His Master.

Praise the Lord, several people are in church today because of Andrew’s faithfulness to prayer meetings, worship service and in witness. Always with a cheerful face, Andrew shares the gospel tirelessly. Surely he will be one who will receive “Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into your rest” unlike many who are contented with only a sinner’s prayer or like the rich and middle class who turn their noses up at him.

Andrew reminds me of the Andrew in the Bible:  John the Baptist was with his disciples. He tells them that Jesus is the “Lamb of God” (v. 36) and they stay with Jesus a while (v. 37). In John 1:40-42, Andrew goes and gets Simon-Peter and they follow Jesus. Why? Because Andrew had spent time with Jesus and told Simon that Jesus was the Messiah (v. 41).

Yes, the Andrew of today, spends time with the Lord and then he goes out and gets others to follow Jesus. Do you have the love of Jesus and do you love Jesus to do the same? To spend time with Jesus and then to get others to follow Jesus? If your love for Jesus means anything to you, you will not stop talking about Jesus.

Let’s talk about Jesus, the King of kings is He,
The Lamb for sinners slain, that man on Galilee,
The Great I am the Way, the Truth, the Life,  the Door
Let’s talk about Jesus, more and more.

    …Great and small are Biblical words that best describe humanity as a whole. It doesn’t matter what social status, educational background, or position in life you hold. People who accept Christ as personal Lord and Savior have “it all”. They are blessed and happy like Andrew. They abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Sounds like Andrew abides under the shadow of the Almighty. May Christ give him the boldness to stand strong in an unbelieving world. God will take care of, and protect His children in this life and from the mark of the Beast during the Tribulation.

    …And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    Great and small..rich or poor…free of bond…with earthly position of without earthly position…

    …For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

    God often uses the small people in this life confound the great. In the future Kingdom the last shall be first..

  3. Praise the Lord for His work in the life of Andrew and thank you for sharing his story and the challenge to do likewise.

    We have no greater privilege in life than that of sharing the good news of the Saviour. May we ALWAYS be ready and willing to do so – whenever, wherever, to whoever.

    We serve an amazing God!
