One young Chinese gangster, Ah Tong, protected his gang brother in a fight by jumping in front of the attacker. At the hospital, a nurse announced that Ah Tong would lose his arm, and possibly his life. A Christian missionary who had never met the man prayed, and he was healed. But, he was still a heroin addict and a criminal. Ashamed of his behavior, he refused to see the Christian again for several years. Then, he was gloriously converted, baptized in the Holy Spirit, and freed from heroin.
This story comes from Jackie Pullinger's book, Chasing the Dragon. Pastor Ray and Alexandra will continue sharing this story this week on the air. We love this book because it is a current example of the marriage of righteousness and love that is true Christianity.
Jesus said, “Love one another, as I have loved you.” Jesus loved in action by healing, feeding, clothing, and forgiving. And he did all this while living a righteous and holy life.
