Let Your Light 'SHINE'
The Living Bible
His name is Bill. He has wild hair, wears a T-shirt
with holes in it, jeans and no shoes. This was
literally his wardrobe for his entire four years of
college. He is brilliant. Kind of esoteric and very,
bright. He became a Christian while attending college.
Across the street from the campus is a well dressed,
very conservative church.They want to develop a ministry to the
students, but are not sure how to go about it.
One day Bill decides to go there. He walks in with
no shoes, jeans, his T-shirt, and wild hair.
The service has already started and so Bill starts
down the aisle looking for a seat. The church is
completely packed and he can't find a seat. By now,
people are really looking a bit uncomfortable,
but no one says anything.
Bill gets closer and closer and closer to the
pulpit, and when he realizes there are no seats, he
just squats down right on the carpet. (Although
perfectly acceptable behavior at a college
fellowship, trust me, this had never happened in
this church before!)
By now the people are really uptight, and the
tension in the air is thick. About this time, the
minister realizes that from way at the back of the
church, a deacon is slowly making his way toward Bill.
Now the deacon is in his eighties, has silver-gray
hair, and a three-piece suit. A godly man, very
elegant, very dignified, very courtly. He walks with
a cane and, as he starts walking toward this boy,
everyone is saying to themselves that you can't
blame him for what he's going to do. How can you
expect a man of his age and of his background to
understand some college kid on the floor?
It takes a long time for the man to reach the boy.
The church is utterly silent except for the clicking
of the man's cane. All eyes are focused on him. You
can't even hear anyone breathing. The minister can't
even preach the sermon until the deacon does what he has to do.
And now they see this elderly man drop his cane on
the floor. With great difficulty, he lowers himself
and sits down next to Bill and worships with him so
he won't be alone. Everyone chokes up with emotion.
When the minister gains control, he says, "What I'm about to
preach, you will never remember. What you have just
seen, you will never forget."
Be careful how you live.
You may be the only Bible some people will ever read.
We asked the Lord to bless you as we prayed for you today.
To guide you and protect you as you go along your way......
His love is always with you, His promises are true,
And when we give Him all our cares, You know He will see us
Pass this to People you want God to Bless
