Hot Fudge Cake and the Gospel (Part 3 of 3)

I did not see that coming. I’m ashamed to admit it, but I was not expecting a positive response. I assumed this entire scenario was about God testing me, and perhaps He was, but how self-focused of me not to realize that this wasn’t just about God working on me! This scenario was also 100% about a young waiter at a diner, feeling Holy Spirit conviction and needing guidance.

My waiter shared with me that his grandmother had been sharing Jesus with him, but he still had some concerns about his sin. God gave me the words to assure him of His grace, and then he sat across from me in the booth, bowed his head, and prayed to receive Jesus as his Lord and Savior.

I couldn’t help but wonder if his grandmother had been praying for his salvation that very night. Maybe she prayed for God to send a messenger. Truthfully, if God had asked me to go to that diner to witness to a waiter, I may have given into fear and found some excuse not to go, but God knew He could get me there with hot fudge cake. Thank you, God, for hot fudge cake.
