“I, even I, have spoken; yea, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous.” Isaiah 48:15

Rev. Luis M. Ortiz

Not long ago two brothers, peasants from Chile, were on their way to work while talking about the powerful sermon about the Second Coming of Christ they heard the night before. They were so excited by the news that one even mentioned his willingness to give his best to win as many souls as possible. Suddenly, an unknown man approached them, greeted and stepped in the conversation saying how urgent it was to win souls given the little time they had. “But you were not in the worship last night”, said one peasant. “Although you did not see me, I was there in the worship”, replied the foreigner and disappeared. The peasants experienced such joy that they could not continue walking to their jobs, instead they decided to come back and talk to their pastor. The pastor told them: “You have lived the same experience of the disciples on the road to Emmaus; the Lord Himself was walking and talking to you”. Dear readers, these humble peasants were talking about a topic that is in the deepest part of God’s heart: the salvation of lost souls. As they were mentioning it, the Lord was there with them, walked with them, talked to them and shared with them. And He will accompany, inspire, defend, bless, hold in his arms all those who made an effort to win souls for the Kingdom of Heaven. We are certain that the Lord is calling workers. Amen.
