He Is a New Creation

Crowd watching filmWith the flick of a switch, the screen came to life in front of the people. One unexpected participant sat among the crowd, his eyes fixed on the true story playing out before him. The man’s name was Ekbal.

One Man’s Accusations

Since the beginning of Gospel for Asia (GFA)-supported pastor Jaival’s ministry, Ekbal had made it his personal business to stir up his fellow villagers against the pastor. Ekbal publicly accused Christians of brainwashing people into serving another god, and his attitude discouraged the people from responding to Pastor Jaival’s message of love.

A Thought-provoking Film

Then one day, another Gospel for Asia (GFA)-supported pastor, Qasim, and his film team brought a movie for the villagers to watch. When night fell and the movie about the life of Christ began to play, Ekbal surprisingly joined the audience. The movie’s portrayal of the creation of the heavens and the earth caused the young man to think deeply. He stayed for the entire showing while the Lord touched his heart through the film.

A Changed Man

Ekbal realized his own sins that night. His troubled heart saw that by opposing Pastor Jaival’s efforts, he had opposed the love of Christ. The next day, Ekbal met with Jaival and asked both the pastor and the Lord for forgiveness.
The love of Jesus completely transformed Ekbal’s life. Though people who used to look up to Ekbal opposed him in his new faith, he and his family gathered regularly with other believers to worship the Lord together. For them, it is a daily choice to serve the God who saves.
