When you board an aeroplane bound for your destination, you do not need to understand how the aeroplane functions, how the pilot lands the plane or even how the landing gears operate. This was what I shared with a new acqauintance I met on an assignment in Hong Kong in a hotel then overlooking Hongkong harbour and the airport beyond. Over 5 hours, she had asked me so so many questions as I had shared the gospel earlier. She said she had so many questions which had to be answered before she could accept Jesus as her Lord and Savior. I was at a lost on how to proceed until looking out the hotel room window we saw a plane taking off from Kai Tak airport across the harbour.
I shared that the passengers in the plane were bound for their destination but unless they were aeronautical engineers they did not know how the aeroplane functioned. They just had to trust the makers of the aeroplane that it would fly, fly safely and land safely. They did not know the pilot but they had to trust he was licensed to fly that model of aeroplane. The light bulb suddenly came on and she realized she will not understand all about Christianity then and she never will. However, the Creator of the universe has ordained that we must have our sins forgiven through Jesus Christ (His way) and by the cleansing blood of Jesus,. The promise of forgiveness and cleansing of sin and payment of sin’s penalties had been provided by God and we need just step on to the jet plane of Faith in Jesus to take off to heaven. One soul was added to the kingdom that day. Praise the Lord.
Are you having doubts and fears about the salvation that God has offered? You cannot know its reality by the witness of the Holy Spirit with your spirit until in faith you accept the offer of salvation. Still doubting? Prove Him with – ‘Come now, and let us reason together,’ Says the Lord, ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. ‘ Isaiah 1:18.. His grace will cover your multitude of sins, redeem you from the bondage of sin and set you free> You need not have all your answers. You will experience them as the days go by as you live by faith.
