“By their fruits, you will recognise them” Matthew 7 V16
Your life is a 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. He is brilliant, kind of esoteric and very, very bright. He became a Christian whilst attending college.
One day Bill decided to go to church. He walks in with no shoes, jeans, T-shirt, and wild hair. The service has already started and so Bill goes 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 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 close to the pulpit. (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. A godly man, very elegant, very dignified, very courtly and as he starts walking toward this boy, everyone expected him to throw the boy out of the church.
It took a while for the deacon to reach the boy. The church is utterly silent, all eyes focused on the deacon and boy. The minister can’t even preach the sermon until the deacon does what he has to do (as expected throw the boy out of the church). But then now, they see this deacon lowers himself to the floor and sits down next to Bill and worships with him so he won’t be alone. You are the “living Bible” – your life might be the only one someone will read about God. Show someone love today. Amen. JESUS LOVES YOU.
Start your day with Jesus. Beloved, have a blessed day.
