An Indian man named Jayesh was deeply committed to his beliefs, until he met a local pastor. As they were walking through the village one day, the Pastor stopped to tell Jayesh about his love for Jesus. Jayesh became very angry and accused the pastor to trying to convert people to Christianity. He warned the pastor to leave town or he would turn him in to the local authorities. The pastor said he wasn’t worried, and this made Jayesh so made that he decided that he would not only report the pastor, but would kill him also. To justify his plan, Jayesh began following the pastor around determined to catch him doing evil things. After following the pastor around for some time, he became confused because he nothing but a genuine love from the man. One night, while the pastor prayed with other believers in the church, Jayesh sat outside listening. He realized he needed the forgiveness the pastor spoke about and began to cry. Inside, the pastor heard him, and went to comfort Jayesh. The pastor brought Jayesh inside and prayed with him. Afterward Jayesh confessed his plans, and repented, choosing to follow Jesus from that day forward. Speaking about the pastor later Jayesh said, “Now I know that there is no blame on him. He worships the real God.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
