This is an excerpt from the back of our Church bulletin two Sundays ago. It made me brake out in "goose bumps"

------------------------------------
A certain minister was once called to the bedside of a dying infidel whom he had befriended, and for whom he had helped to provide for his physical needs, When the minister arrived at the bedside, the man said, "I have not called you here to talk about religion, for you know I do not believe in it, but I have called you that I might thank you for all your kindness to me." "May I ask you one question?" said the minister. "Yes," he replied, "just as long as you do not talk to me about religion." Lifting his heart in prayer the minister said "You know I have to preach tonight, and many of those that will be there are poor people, and sick, who will soon have to face death just as you are now doing. Tell me, what shall I preach about?" There was a long silence, and then with tear-dimmed eye he responded, "Preach Christ to them, preach Christ." Then utterly broken he was ready to let the minister preach Jesus to him, and to lead him to receive Christ as his Savior.

This is what the world needs today, and the need of every individual. Let us be faithful to make Him known, for He is the only way of Salvation.

"No matter what scripture text I preach from, I always cut
cross-country to Jesus Christ, and preach His saving Grace."
- Charles Spurgeon

    Thanks for sharing that, Melodie. I hadn't even read that myself, but, yes, our task is simple: we are to preach Jesus.
