The Bible gives us a wonderful way to spread the Gospel and today’s devotional is a marvelous illustration of how it is done. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
II Timothy 2:1-2 (ESV)
1 You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, 2 and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.
“Dr. William Edgar did not grow up in an evangelical home. But while studying at Harvard, he met a professor who set him on his path toward Christian faith. This professor connected Edgar with Francis Schaeffer, who had studied at Westminster under Cornelius Van Til. Edgar soon traveled to Switzerland where he had the opportunity to meet Schaeffer.
“From the moment Edgar entered the Schaeffers’ home, he was impressed with their warmth and graciousness. For the first time, in Schaeffer’s presence, Edgar began to think that Christianity might be true. He decided to stay with the Schaeffers for a month, during which time Schaeffer walked him through the basics of the faith and led him to Christ.
“In the following months and years, Schaeffer became a trusted friend and mentor to Edgar. Edgar himself would go on to study under Van Til at Westminster. Today he is one of our cherished faculty members, training students for ministry in every context.”
