Nahu is 11 years old and was given a Story of Jesus booklet on his way home from school. For some reason, he couldn’t take his eyes off the booklet and found himself standing on a street corner reading about the man he thought had only been a prophet.
Jesus was different from what he had been told. Jesus was kind. He healed the sick and the brokenhearted. It appeared to Nahu that Jesus was much more than just a prophet.
Troubled by the inconsistency of what he had read about Jesus, Nahu asked a friend to take him to the home of a Christian who lived nearby.
As the Christian explained who Jesus really was, Nahu spoke to Jesus for the very first time in his life. He asked Jesus into his heart.
If Nahu’s parents find out, they will drive him from his home—a test he simply shouldn’t have to face at this young age. But Nahu has been changed. In fact, Nahu is determined to tell his family about his newfound faith in Jesus, regardless of what happens to him.
Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God… 2 Timothy 1:8 nasb
God, I may not have faced being thrown out of my home for believing that you are the way, truth and life. But this is the kind of raw determination I pray for: To believe in you as passionately as Nahu does. I pray that the power of the story of salvation would never cease to capture my heart, just like it did with Nahu.
