SOURCE OF PEACE
Five Christian students were walking home from an open seminer in east Africa and passed a young Muslim man walking in the bush with a rope in his hand.
He tied the rope around a tree. The students asked, “What are you doing?” “I want to kill myself,” he replied. “Why?”
I say my prayers five times a day and I read the Quran. I have money, a wife and children, but I have no peace. I want peace. That is my one big wish.
The students applied what they have learned and witnessed to this man named KEDER. They told him that Qur’an teaches that Jesus is a prophet but He is also the Saviour of everyone who accepts Him as Lord. He is the Prince of Peace. KEDER left the rope in the tree and decided to give this Saviour a try. The students took him to the church and after prayer KEDER said, “I’ VE FOUND THE PEACE I WAS SEEKING.”
The following day KEDER showed up in the seminar. A stranger wearing a Muslim hat scared the teacher at first but he continued. In the afternoon, KEDER asked to give his testimony. “Until now, Islam was the only genuine religion for me because it was straightforward. I studied the Qur’an for five years and I perform my rituals daily but none of that gave me PEACE. That is why I decided to kill myself. Then I met five of you Christians yesterday.
I used to hate Christians, but when you witnessed and prayed for me, everything changed. Muslims are hurting without the knowledge of the Scriptures, therefore, pray for them.”
KEDER is secretly studying the Bible and attending church. His Bible study leader says that he attends regularly and arrives early to talk about Jesus before the Bible study starts. Jesus’ peace makes him unafraid and he wants to witness. He is even prepared to die for Jesus.

IT’S YOUR TURN TO TESTIFY
Jesus remains the only ultimate solution to our troubled life. He remains the only source of peace. He says in John’s gospel 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Remain in the peace of Christ and worry no more. The tide will soon turn. The Lord has got you engraved in the palm of His hand, He knows your ups and downs, He has an appointed time for your miracles. Wait in patience, He will never fail you. Soon, you will testify.
