Observations by Jeff Wadley during a recent prison run

wadleyOne particular young man I visited with started to leave and go back into the prison from the yard when the invitation began; I reached out and shook his hand and stopped him.

I asked him, “Do you have a spiritual belief?”, his reply was, ” sort of”.
Then I asked him,” If your sister, wife, brother or whomever picked you up the day of your release and on your way home you were hit by a truck and killed, and found yourself standing in front of Jesus and He said to you, ” Why should I let you into my heaven?, What would you say?.
His reply was,” I don’t think I would get that far.”
I also asked him,” Would you like to know the truth?” and then, I explained this scenario;

Did you know that everything in your life up to this point had to happen JUST RIGHT, in order for you and I to meet on this prison yard and shake hands? Every molecule, every good and bad thing, every thought, every action, had to be just right in your and my life in order for us to meet!
His response was one of shock. Just to realize I was right.

I asked him if I could share something with him? And his response was,” I wasn’t even going to come out and see the activities today, I was going to stay inside and read, but something told me to come on out. I told him that was Jesus knocking at his spiritual door.
After sharing God’s love and the scriptures from John 3:16 and many others this young man named, “Tron”, accepted the Lord as his personal Lord and Savior. Please remain in prayer for him as he is struggling to overcome a sexual addiction. I prayed that God would intervene the moment he is faced with his adversary in sin, and that he could overcome this addiction by serving God.
In tears he gave me a manly hug and had to go inside for “Count”.
Lord, bless ?Tron?. Be with him in everything he does. Be by his side and comfort him. Allow your word to come to life for him as he reads.You promised the comforter, and I ask you send him to “Tron” in wholeness. Amen

Hope Fellowship Riders ride for Christ. This is their calling and obligation to the Lord. They use their bikes to get the Word across to the lost. God is doing great things through these men and women. What’s your story?”2014-08-12 00:57:17′
