In the English edition of the communist China Daily a few days ago, a Christian college student in China tells the story of his conversion to Jesus Christ (www.chinadaily.com.cn/metro/2010-03/17/content_9602273.htm).
In the article, the young man says that he became a believer after he started reading a Bible which was given to him by a friend.
The Bible can change a life when it falls into the right hands, the hands of someone prepared by the Spirit of God to receive it.
If you have ever given away a Bible or donated to an organization that sends Bibles to others, you have provided someone with an important tool in finding God, finding one's purpose in life, and finding wisdom for living. Keep sharing. It can make a great difference in someone's life.
"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
