"Islam and Christianity are pretty similar, right?" said Karim*, a Saudi man.

"Well, we have some similarities but we are actually very different," replied Jasper. "One thing that sets us apart from other religions is that we follow the Bible's teaching that salvation is obtained by faith alone through Jesus Christ."

This caused Karim to ask more questions. After a long talk, Jasper convinced Karim and his girlfriend Fatima to take a free "JESUS" film and an Arabic/English New Testament.

"I will watch the film and read this Bible so I can learn better English." Karim said.

Jasper smiled wide, knowing in his heart that this living Word of God was powerful and would do more in Karim than just help him learn a new language. Jasper prayed as Karim walked away, asking the Lord to make the Scripture come alive to Karim and Fatima and draw them to God.

Pray for Karim and his girlfriend. Pray they would realize their desperate need for a Savior and come to know Jesus as Lord. To learn more about digging into God's word check out this Bible study.
