"The professor asked, “Do you know who that was that you dropped off?”
1 Timothy 2:4, “Who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (ESV)
After that Juan went inside and Carlos looked to see who had spoken. It was dark and he was unable to make out the face. He saw the glow of a cigarette, after a long inhale, it was flicked to the ground and stomped out. The counselor stepped forward and in shock, Carlos asked, “Professor, is that you?”
Entering the facility he winked and replied, “I’ll see you in class tomorrow. Good job.”
Carlos stood in awe. He was blown away by all of the amazing things that had just transpired, He shook the shock off with a smile, and walked to his bus stop. He boarded the bus, rode to his house, ate his dinner, and completed his first of 3 required red envelope reports. After he was done, he took a shower, and went to bed.
In the morning, he went to class and the professor was already in. He approached the professor and gave him the assignment. The professor asked, “Do you know who that was that you dropped off?”
Carlos said, “I do.” He then went on to tell the story of the rise and criminal fall of Juan Ramirez.
The professor laughed quietly and said, “That’s what he did. I asked do you know who HE IS.” Carlos stood puzzled and said, “I guess not? However, I’m struggling trying to figure out what else could be known about him. I know him, his wife, his past, his struggles, and his crime. I feel that if there was something else to know, I’d know it.” Carlos wasn’t disrespectful in his delivery; however, he was inquisitive.
What was left to know?
The professor said, “Juan was the deacon at my church that taught me the gospel and baptized me.”
