The Deaf Mute's Faith
One day a minister's servant brought a subscription book and laid it on
his study table, saying, "A dumb man brought it, sir." On looking at the
book, a thought struck the minister that he should not let that dumb
man out of his house without seeking his soul's good. He invited the man
in, and after kneeling in prayer before the man, and putting a
subscription into his hand, the following conversation took place in
writing. The minister wrote: "My dear friend, have you found the Lord
Jesus Christ to be precious to your soul? Are you born again?" The dumb
man answered, "Yes, I understand what is meant by 'born of the Spirit,'
it means a 'new creature' in Jesus." The minister was not quite
satisfied with the answer, and therefore he asked, "When were you made a
'new creature,' and how?" He answered, "I was under the impression of
sin six years ago, but I prayed to God for Christ's sake to give me a
new heart, and I felt joy and peace in my mind. I prayed O Lord, have
mercy on me a poor sinner. I also read the Psalms of David." In order to
bring out distinctly whether he really arrived at scriptural peace, for
he feared that, after all, the dumb man's faith might turn out to be
only a vague and wavering confidence, the minister asked him again "If
God were to call you away this night, would your sins be brought against
you, and would you have to answer for them all?" He answered, "I trust
in God for Christ's sake, because Jesus died for me. All those who trust
in Jesus' precious blood are cleansed from all sin. He is mighty to
save." The minister then asked, "Was it through the instruction you got
at the Deaf and Dumb Institution that these good impressions were made
upon your mind?" He answered, "My teacher used to teach the Bible to all
deaf and dumb pupils, but I did not feel any grace from God till I was
afraid to meet God for sins; then I looked to Christ by faith and got
peace." The minister then asked, "Will you write a sentence for me to
read to poor sinners, from a dumb man that cannot speak?" He then wrote
as follows--words which he meant to be used by the reader:--
"O Lord, have mercy upon me a poor sinner!"
"O Jesus, save me from death and hell!"
"O Jesus, take me away to heaven and eternal bliss!"
"O Jesus, take care of me every day!"
"Will you sign your name to all this?" then asked the minister. He
immediately complied with the request. We only give the initials J----
