Indonesia: Chased into the Arms of Jesus

Indonesia

Seeking the Truth
Bobby was a Muslim teenager. When he was asleep, he had dreams about Jesus and heaven. He wondered what the dreams meant. Many Muslims are not comfortable asking questions about their faith, or their holy book, the Quran. They just accept what Muslim leaders tell them.

But, after his dreams, Bobby had questions. He bought three books: a Bible, a Hindu book, and a Buddhist book. (Hinduism and Buddhism are religions that do not agree with the Bible.) He thought the books might help him find answers. Bobby began to read the books in his bedroom.

Muslims believe that Jesus was a good man. But they do not believe He was the Son of God. They do not believe that people are saved by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ. Instead, they believe that Allah, who they worship, lets people into heaven if they have done enough good works. But no one knows how many good works are “enough.”

Bobby learned more about Jesus from the Bible he bought. But before he could decide what he believed, he got in trouble. “One day I forgot to lock my door,” Bobby said. “My mother came in, and seeing the books, she screamed. My father told me, ‘You’re a sinner.’” Bobby’s parents thought the books were “unclean.”

Indonesia: The Man in the White Hat

Indonesia

Radical Muslims caused trouble for a woman named Huta Julu and her church in Indonesia many times.

One night the Muslims nailed boards over the windows and doors so no one could get into the church. So the congregation worshiped in front of the church. Then the Muslims poured mud in front of the church and made it hard to walk there.

Huta Julu said, “We moved into the street to worship and praise God. A Muslim mob brought knives to scare us. We were singing, ‘In the name of Jesus, we have the victory.’ As we sang, many in the mob backed up and tripped, and some fell down….Nothing can separate us from the love of God.”
