David Platt, Senior Pastor of McLean Bible Church in Virginia, recently interviewed a Christian missionary, “Yazid”, who has been serving Muslims in the Middle East. Muslim is the term used for the people group who follow Islam and read from the Quran, their holy book.
Jesus is mentioned in the Quran, but merely as a prophet and messenger of God. In David Platt’s interview, Yazid shared a radical testimony of how Jesus Christ Himself encountered a Muslim man. Yazid retells the Muslim man’s story, “A man wearing all white knocks on my door every night, and I couldn’t look at him because his face was so shiny and bright. When he would come inside, he asked me to write down what he said. And as I wrote, I would fall asleep and then the next night, he would come again.” These encounters went on for several weeks.
Yazid had the amazing opportunity to see the actual notes the Muslim man had taken. The first page began, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” which is the direct quote of John 1:1. To Yazid’s surprise the Muslim man had the entire book of John written in his notebook.

Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Yazid’s testimony is just one example of how Jesus is working across the globe. What He said in John 12:32 is still true today, “I will draw all people to myself” and Jesus is doing just that!
