K. P. Yohannan Reflects on Late Mentor John Haggai’s Desire to Do ‘One Thing’ for God

Evangelist and Bible teacher Dr. John Haggai was not a household name in America. But last week, when he passed away at the age of 96, this kindest and most gracious of men left a giant legacy for the Kingdom of God.

A small part of that legacy was me.

As a skinny, 20-year-old student from India attending a seminary course in Singapore, I was transfixed as this passionate, bold American shot a burning arrow into my quivering faith: “Only what you do for Jesus Christ is eternal. Think of the one thing you will do with your life to glorify God.”

I think Dr. Haggai knew he was telling me something I couldn’t figure out in one day. He knew he was dropping this idea in my mind, and it would have a ripple effect. He knew how to plant something that would take root and bear fruit later.

Fast forward 50 years, and it’s a question I believe every follower of Jesus today must contemplate and ultimately answer: “What is the one thing I will do for God?”

With our world in turmoil – hostage to a virus, reeling from a contentious election, and protests, riots and chaos everywhere – so many Christians are running in all directions. Distracted. Unsure. Afraid.  Asking, “what should I be doing now” – and yet too frantic, too busy to ask God for direction and listen to His voice.

Could I humbly suggest we ask ourselves Dr. Haggai’s one question that truly matters in life: “What is the one thing God is asking me to do?”
