Pastor Jack Hyles' Favorite Soul Winning Experiences
by Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001)
THE BROTHERS WHO WON EACH OTHER
"Would you go with me to see my brother tonight?" These words were spoken at 11 p.m. They were spoken to me by one of the men in our church. We were at a Sunday school class party.
"This is a strange hour for you to have such a request, Ken," I replied, "but if you say so, I will go."
It was nearly midnight when Ken and I drove up to Randall's house. On the way Ken warned me to be ready for anything. "He may curse you out or throw you out," were his words of warning. Randall did neither of these but heard the message of life through Christ. Ken was somewhat surprised, for Randall was a drunkard and a wicked man; but the Holy Spirit was working.
About 1 o'clock in the morning Ken, Randall, and I knelt to pray, and Randall received Christ into his heart. He woke his wife and children and told them about his salvation as Ken and I laughed and cried together. What an experience! What a thrill! What an investment! The next Sunday Randall came forward for baptism and membership in the First Baptist Church.
"Would you go with me to see my brother today?" These words were spoken to me by Randall, one of the deacons in our church. Yes, this is the same Randall mentioned above. He is now a soul-winning deacon. However, Ken drifted away from God and Randall got concerned about him. Randall and I went together to Ken's apartment and told Ken of a loving God Who is willing to forgive and restore. Once again the three of us got on our knees, and Ken was marvelously reclaimed for Christ. Now Ken is back with us, and the two brothers are serving God together.
Like Andrew and Peter, like Moses and Aaron, like John and Charles Wesley these men are living testimonies of a brother's concern for his brother and of Christ's power to save families. Ken's children have been saved, and all of Randall's family has been saved.
