David Schiller did not understand what happened inside him when he met a Christian friend. Suddenly, he got violent and angry whenever he saw his friend, Jeremy. What could be the case?
A Christian friend
David was born and raised in a Jewish home. David was taught to observe Jewish traditions and customs from the Orthodox on his mother’s side and the Reform from his father’s side. So, he went to Hebrew school and Shabbat school. And eventually, he got Bar Mitzvah.
During his college years, he joined a fraternity at Cornwell University and met Jeremy there. Jeremy was outspoken and vibrant. He walked his talk and lived his faith.
But to David’s eyes, Jeremy was only pretending and arrogant. He felt that Jeremy was feeling superior over others. So, one Sunday, he secretly followed his fraternity brother to a church service to find out what could tick him.
The people inside the church then handed him a Bible and invited David to study the book of Hebrews. At the time, David didn’t have a clue about the Gentile Book. But, as he discovered that the New Testament was so Jewish, something snapped inside him. He mocked the Bible, but at the same time, he knew he wanted it.
He then had an internal struggle that led him to become more violent. David got involved in drugs and selling them to others. He was getting angrier and started hating Jeremy. His hatred was uncontrollably intense that he even sneaked up behind Jeremy and grabbed him, with a knife up to his throat.
Little did David know that he was angry with Jeremy because he was envious of what Jeremy had. He had joy, life, genuineness, and godliness. And David found that he had none of that.
So, he fell to his knees and started crying as soon as he realized it. He felt the Presence of God and came to a tremendous release of every negative thing he had within. Finally, he asked Yeshua to come and save him and change his life.
And Yeshua never fails. Once David committed his life to Him, He saw a transformation from being a hateful Jew to a loving and vibrant Jew.
