Have you ever been stuck in an evangelistic moment, not knowing what to do or say next? Jesus would reveal information about a person only God could know. When he was speaking with the woman at the well in Samaria (John 4:4-26) he revealed that she had been married five times.
When Jesus was speaking with Nathanael, he said: “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you” (John 1:48). In both cases, they then saw Jesus as he really was – the son of God, the Messiah whom they were longing for.
When God shares with us information about a person we could not naturally know, it creates a powerful moment when the person we are speaking to realises that God knows them. This story is about an evangelistic moment where God shares with Mark a specific piece of information that profoundly impacted a taxi driver.
