Turn and live!
Ezekiel 18:32

William (2)
“William!” The Indian thought he had suddenly been called just as he was about to take his life. William was not his Indian name, but the name that the missionary had given him years before.

He put his rifle down and looked around, but there was no-one there. He realised that his conscience had called him. It seemed to be saying: “William, have you completely forgotten what you were told about our good God? That He is waiting for you and will forgive you if you turn to Him. Why don’t you ask Him for food?

But William was too proud for that. He sensed his ingratitude, but put up some resistance. Yet the voice didn’t leave off calling. He imagined he could hear his wife and children crying with hunger and fell on to his knees and prayed. He asked the great God to forgive the poor Indian who had run away. He asked Him for food. He went on praying and and confessed the life he was leading. He felt that God was near and heard him. Then he stood up and picked up his rifle; a short time later he had shot a deer. He lit a fire and ate, then took the rest to his family. In the following weeks they had no further need. When the snow melted they set off for the mission station. It was now inhabited by a new generation of missionaries, who joyfully welcomed him and his family.

God had called William to turn back to Him for a happy life both here on earth and in eternity. The same God is still calling; “Come to me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give your rest” (Matthew 11:28). Are there people today who will hear God’s call and turn to Him?
