Napier Man Finds John 10:10 A Reality By Doing Evangelism

7 May 2014 6 Comments

Hi, I just heard a great report about a man in Napier.

ability-beyond-disabilityRenee Tobin, my assistant leader, is running night classes for a church in Napier, teaching them how to evangelise.

One of her class is a young man with mild disability.

In the past month, he has given out over 400 cards.

He said to Renee last night “This is the most fulfilling and rewarding thing I have done in my whole life!”

How is he doing it? He is going around all tbiblein11-cardhe businesses in the entire city of Napier and giving them to the staff.

He even has clientele.  By this I mean he has people in some of the shops who keep asking for more cards. These are non-Christians wanting to show other non-Christians.

Now that he has done the first round of all the businesses, he is now going to start in the industrial area of Napier.

When Jesus said in Acts 1:8 we are to evangelise our Jerusalem first, this is what this man is doing.  He is soaking his own town first with the gospel.  For him, Napier is his Jerusalem.

What’s interesting to me is that this man has done all this inspite of having a disability.

What a champion!!!!

By the way John 10:10 says “I have come that they might have life and life in all its fullness”.

    Here is a man who has seen beyond his disability.

    Everyone has some kind of disability, whether it is physical or situational, or psychological.

    This man has grasped the command that Jesus has given us and in doing so he is receiving power according to the riches that God has in store for all who obey.

    Is it not so that in accordance with all that we do for the Glory of God we find absolute fulfillment and joy and purpose fro simply being His servants.

    Good on you man of God and be encouraged under all circumstances!

    So true Bruce that everyone could have a plausible excuse for not doing evangelism. But courage overcomes. Bless you my friend for your comment.

    Isaiah 6:8 says “Who will i send? who will go for us? Jesus said ye did not choose me but i choose you.”
    So, despite his wheelchair situation, he went.

  • Julian Batchelor says:

    Thanks Ann – we believe the Bible when it says “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
    And do not return there without watering the earth And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
    So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire,And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.”
    Bless you for writing in. The dear man in the wheel chair will reap from what he has sown.

  • Julian Batchelor says:

    When He said “You did not choose me, but I chose you” this is speaking of salvation. We are saved for good works, chief of which is to evangelise this world. What a legend the man in the wheelchair is.
