…. they were unschooled, ordinary men …. they had been with Jesus …. the crippled man healed standing with them – Acts 4:13,14

Show me God

Frank Damazio:
A few years ago I heard a story about Richard Wurmbrand. This Romanian Christian minister of Jewish descent publicly denounced communism and said that it was not compatible with Christianity. Due to his unwillingness to compromise his convictions, he experienced imprisonment and repeated torture for his beliefs. Despite his almost unbearable hardships, he never made a negative statement about those who persecuted him. In fact, he was known to pray for each communist guard on a daily basis.

At one point during Wurmbrand’s imprisonment, one of the other prisoners confronted him in the middle of the prison compound. He said that the way Wurmbrand had been imprisoned and tortured proved that there was no God. Wurmbrand is said to have quietly responded, “If I can show you God, would you then believe?” The man retorted, “Of course, but look at you, look at us! You can’t show me God.”

Wurmbrand looked at his fellow prisoner and said, “God is like me.”
Instantly the man fell to his knees and gave his life to Jesus.”
