In the time that remained, I asked him if he had ever lied, cheated, stolen or committed adultery. While not being specific, he readily agreed that he had done some of those things. I shared with him that we all have done things like that and we all have fallen short of the standard God has. I let him know there was nothing we could do that was good enough to make it right with God, that Jesus came and gave His life to pay the price we could never pay and give us a life we could never otherwise have.
Amazingly, his heart was pricked and I asked him if we could pray with him to receive Christ. After explaining that a little, the three of us took hands and we all three prayed. His prayer was repentant, genuine and moving. As the plane touched down on the runway he became a new creature in Christ, smiling, teary eyed and holding on to my wife’s hand all the way to the gate.
