Because of Jesus

By Janet Apgar

She asks to meet so that she can improve her English. So amidst the aroma of coffee and tea, the laborious exchange of English occurs between us. Lisa throws in a Chinese explanation here and there. Then, suddenly, this woman with the sleek shoulder length black hair and flat-lined rose colored lips, bores her almond brown eyes into mine, “Why you so nice to me?”


“Because of Jesus. . .” I start and then nod to Lisa to explain. It’s short and simple. She wants Jesus too. We only go to help her with her English, but instead receive a sister in Christ.


Such is the privilege of hang ups, expletives, slammed doors and distrustful expressions during call centers or outreach. We persevere because He persevered (who for the joy set before Him endured the cross. . . Hebrews 12:2).


It’s been said, “Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the apples in a seed.” We persevere sowing our seeds and that is our joy! Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. Psalms 126:5.
