Always Ready to Give An Answer

Always Ready to Give An Answer by Keith Cook

"We are a fragrance of Christ." 2 Corinthians 2:15

Even in the middle of your pain Jesus can use you. The past few days devotions have been about some of the things my wife and I have learned through our automobile accident a few years ago. Again I must stress that Joan and I have fully recovered, yet there were so many lessons we gathered from the events that we must continue to share the truths God shared with us.

One night about a week after our car accident, while I was still trying to recover, my wife looked at the wound on my head and said, "your head does not look very good. The wound is bigger than it should be and I think there may be something wrong." We rushed back to the emergency room where we found out that the blood was seeping from the wound and was causing a bubble of blood to form on my head. I had to have the wound drained and re-stitched. An emergency room nurse soon came into my room and began working on the area. The Lord spoke to me in a gentle voice and said, "Keith, I want you to talk to this lady about Me."

I began to witness to her as she was taking care of me. In the middle of this painful situation, this lady's whole demeanor changed. The Lord let us spend about an hour together where I was able to share with her and she was able to share with me about her spiritual life. She told me, "Normally I would not want to talk like this. I would just come in and do my job real quick, but for some reason tonight God is making this thing go so slow. I guess so we can talk about some things that are really important in my life."

Wow! What a blessing this visit to the hospital turned out to be for me. In the midst of my physical pain, the Lord wanted me to share with someone who was hurting spiritually. Remember, God can use you in the midst of your pain!
