MCML Podcast E60: Pastor B’s Story Part 1 – A Great Miracle That Changed A Life
Pastor B was born in a Christian family but he has never been a Christian and never considered himself to have a personal relationship with Jesus. When he was 20 years old, he became very sick and the doctors could not find out why when his parents took him to the hospital. The doctors asked his parents to admit him to the hospital for observation but his mother said that they would take him home and just pray for him. He was taken home and was bedridden for days while his mother kept praying for him. He couldn’t walk or even move by himself.
Then one night, he was asking himself what was happening to him? Will he be okay or was he going to die? So many questions were forming in his mind and that was when he really prayed for the first time in his life. He had prayed before but this was the first time he had ever prayed with all his heart. In the darkness of his room, void of any light, he looked up as he prayed and asked that he be healed if Jesus is truly God. He said that if he was healed, he would serve God his entire life. Before he could even finish praying, he saw thousands of lights shining brightly in his room. It was so bright in the room that he could not open his eyes and he heard a voice saying that he was completely healed. He realized it was the voice of Jesus and he truly did feel that he was completely healed. He jumped off his bed and went to college the very next day. He knew it was a big miracle and the very first miracle he had ever experienced. Everyone was astonished and that was the time that Pastor B committed his life to God and accepted Jesus as his personal savior.
After his first encounter with God, he continued to live a normal worldly life as he went to college, ran around with his friends and started to study more because he wanted to earn a lot of money. A year after that fateful day, his parents sent him to Malaysia to visit his uncle’s family. In Malaysia, he was taken to a Chinese church for Sunday worship service. At the end of the service, the pastor has an altar call and starts to prophesy that someone there has committed his life to serve God but kind of backsidded now. He continued to say that God was calling him. This was his second chance.
Pastor B realized that the call was for him so he went forward and knelt down. He started his life to serve him and there was no turning back.
