Broken because of death
March 27, 2017
From a listener in India:
I am a businessman and I have a son. My wife passed away 12 years ago. I am just living for my son. At my wife’s death I was completely broken. I was all alone and my son was small. All the responsibility of bringing him up was upon my shoulder. Without her I was very lonely. Sometimes I even cry alone. People suggested I marry again but I was used to working long hours at the shop and taking care of my son.
In those days, I did not have any electronic devices except an old radio that ran on batteries. Whenever I come home from work in the evening I listened to the news, songs and other business programs.
One day, as usual, I was tuning in to listen when I found the program Sacho Vachan. I heard that day that Jesus loved me, that he will help me in difficult situations, and he will never leave me nor forsake me. The preacher told a true story of a how Jesus blessed the life of a lonely person. This story touched my heart. I started listening to the program regularly from then on. Soon I understood about sin and the salvation given by God. That day I prayed a prayer of repentance and accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior.
Then a crisis struck.
I was unable to pay my landlord due to some financial problems. It was then I cried out to God desperately. Amazingly, the next morning, my brother returned some money he had owed me a long time ago. I was so grateful that my prayer was answered quickly. My faith grew through this situation, and I started talking about Jesus with my son.
From then on, we started going to church and having fellowship with the Lord’s people. I listen to the radio daily and read my Bible without fail. That was nine years ago, today we continue to grow in the Lord, experiencing his blessings in our lives.
This new life that we have can only happen through the Lord Jesus Christ. Today we go around sharing the gospel with people around us. Thank God for this program. I pray it will touch many other hearts like mine.
