A young girl struggled with her faith because her parents had different religions. But after watching the Christian series Superbook, she put her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and led her Muslim dad to accept Jesus.
Abel loved her parents. But there was one thing that confused the 9-year-old. They had different faiths, and so she wondered what to believe.
“I wondered why mom went to church and dad went to mosque,” she recalled.
At one point, Abel’s dad taught her about Islam because she was close to him. But later, she struggled with religion and eventually refused to follow her dad in his faith.
Meanwhile, the faith of her mom made her curious. So, she asked her mom to bring her to church with her. Then in the church’s kids Sunday school, the 9-year-old began to learn about Jesus. She started to love the story of Jesus as she watched Superbook because it was easy to understand. Going to church excited Abel because of what she would learn next in the Bible story. So, she kept coming back to church.
Muslim Dad Accepts Jesus
Until one day, the kids’ teachers made the children watch the story of Jesus and Lazarus in the Bible from the Superbook series. The story deeply impacted Abel, and it became her favorite story. The miracle of Lazarus’ resurrection amazed the young girl, so she decided to believe that Jesus was Lord.
So, Abel prayed with her teacher that morning and accepted Jesus in her heart.
“I felt so relieved and happy after I prayed,” the 9-year-old recounted.
Later, Abel shared her Christian faith with her dad. Also, she often shared with him everything she had learned from the Bible. And it wasn’t long before her dad also accepted Christ in his heart.
Abel felt grateful and thanked the Lord that her dad gave his life to Jesus as well. And now, the whole family is growing in their faith in God.
