I was waiting on Rhonda after the movie last night and I noticed a bunch of young people standing across the isle. As I waited in my wheelchair one of the lads came across the isle and introduced himself and ask me a question. ”Sir, there is something different about you and I can’t put my finger on it.” Son, I’d love to tell you what Jesus did for me. In the end he said, “I’m a Christian to and that movie we both watched (I Believe) really inspired me.” I encouraged him to keep looking to Jesus and told him someday you will be 71 and you’ll enjoy the years you spent serving God. He replied, “I hope I’m like you sir.”
I watched him return to his group and they were sure asking him alot of questions.
As we drove home I turned to Rhonda and said, “what a joy to witness to a young lad.” ”I can’t believe how God gives me these opportunities.” Early Tuesday morning I had an encounter with the fellows who pick up my trash and we three had a “glory” moment. We also got to do a hospital visit today. I can’t image what Wednesday will be like.
Thank you heavenly Father for allowing me to stay in your plan. Thanks for the opportunities to talk about you and to lift you on stage for the world to see. Father I pray for my brothers and sisters this morning and I hope they are inspired to seek your plan for their life today. Sometimes I hear folks say “I’m only one, I don’t make a difference.’ Father that’s just not true. If you can use a old back of the herd guy like me just look at yesterday; three people liked hearing about you. What a joy.
My last comment to Rhonda last night was “why would anyone want to miss out on the joy that comes from serving God.”
Gal 6:14 For my part, I am going to boast about nothing but the Cross of our Master, Jesus Christ. Because of that Cross, I have been crucified in relation to the world, set free from the stifling atmosphere of pleasing others and fitting into the little patterns that they dictate.
Gal 6:15 Can’t you see the central issue in all this? It is not what you and I do–submit to circumcision, reject circumcision. It is what God is doing, and he is creating something totally new, a free life!
Gal 6:16 All who walk by this standard are the true Israel of God–his chosen people. Peace and mercy on them!
