Be the Hands and Feet
Posted by Nick Vujicic on Friday, January 12, 2018
Nick Vujicic, born without arms and legs, has been telling people about Jesus Christ since he became a Christian at age 15. It would be easy for someone in his position to deny God’s existence, but he says he’s not an atheist because he has seen things that science can’t explain, such as 10-foot-tall demons in his hotel room.
Vujicic, known as the “limbless evangelist,” is connecting with his fans in 2018 by way of weekly, live Facebook question and answer sessions. His first was last week. It is still available on his Facebook site.
Nick Vujicic Answers Questions
In one of the questions he was asked, “How can we know God’s love is real, and how do you know it?” He answered, “I can’t show you God, I can’t show you an angel, but one of the reasons I am not an atheist, and one of the reasons why I don’t believe science explains everything, is because I have seen miracles, and I have seen demons. I’ve seen 10-foot-tall demons, 5-foot wide walk in through my San Francisco hotel room. And I felt the demon’s presence, the demonic presence, before the demon actually walked through the wall.”
He suggested that the existence of things like voodoo and witchcraft, which he said are real, also show that science can’t explain everything.
He told his viewers, “There is a spiritual realm. You have to walk by faith despite what you see, despite what you feel. You believe it.”
Evangelists Need to Speak Up
Vujicic also called on his viewers to live out God’s call in their lives. He said in a church of 100 people, there is at least one person who knows they have the gift of evangelism but isn’t sure how to begin. He sees many who don’t act on God’s call because they’re afraid they won’t be able to answer the hard questions they’ll face. He implored them to find answers to the top 6 or 7 reasons why people don’t believe in God and step out in faith and obedience as the hands and feet of Jesus.
As Vujicic reminded his Facebook followers, especially those struggling to live out God’s call, “your purpose is not done on earth. If you are still breathing, you still have a purpose.”
Another viewer asked Vujicic how he keeps his marriage strong to his wife Kanae, who recently gave birth to Olivia and Ellie, the couple’s twin daughters, bringing their number of children to four. They have two older sons.
“In 2017, my total days away from home was about 105 days. [In] 2018, it’s going to be 84 days. And we’re going to stick to it, by the grace of God reaching the most amount of people ever,” Vujicic said of his plans.
Through his ministry, Vujicic says he’s been to 68 countries spreading the Gospel and looks forward to scheduling trips to the few he has not visited, such as Ireland and Greece.
