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.
