The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul. Ps. 19:7.

Little do we appreciate the potency of the pure Word of God to change men’s lives. How often conversion and eminent service has come out of a page torn from a Testament falling into the hands of a casual reader. Men have thrown Bibles violently into a corner only to pick them up later and be convinced and converted when they thought no one was observing them. It is “quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword” to discern the thoughts and the intents of the heart.

On one of his visits to America, George Whitefield, associate of Wesley in the great Methodist revivals of England, stopped at the home of a prominent general who lived in Providence, RI. It had always been Whitefield’s custom to inquire concerning the spiritual welfare of people with whom he tarried. In this case, however, the family, though not church people, were of such high moral character that Whitefield hesitated about speaking to them of eternal things.

After he had retired to bed one evening he was disquieted with the thought of the responsibility resting upon him should his father and mother and mother and four children fail of salvation because he was too timid to broach the matter of their personal relationship to God. He debated with himself and argued that these people were too good and kind for him to offend them with such personal inquiry. Sleep failing him because of his agitation, he arouse and prayed, the perspiration standing out on his brow in his very agony.

At last a happy thought came to him. He went to a window and scratched upon a pane of glass the words Jesus had given to the rich young ruler who had come to Him, “One thing though lackest.” He left the next day without saying anything to the family about the message in the bedroom window, or even referring in any way to the anxiety of his mind concerning their spiritual state. It was the general who found the text on the window glass, and the Spirit of the Lord in the Word winged its message into his heart and eventually to the whole family in converting power.

The potency of the Inspired Word to solve problems and save from sin---have you tried it?

From: My Lord and I.

What an awesome and wonderful testimony of divine love and grace to each of us.

3 Bullets

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old rifle and three bullets.

So, he decided that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner.

As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away.

Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel, but missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood treel.

As he went further, he saw a large, wild "Tom" turkey in the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining.

A voice spoke to him and said, "Pray first, aim high, and stay focused."

However, at the same time he saw a deer which was a better kill.

He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattlesnake between his legs, about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattlesnake.

Still, the voice said again to him, "I said, 'Pray, Aim high, and Stay focused."

So, the man decided to listen to God's voice.

He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree, and shot the wild turkey.

The bullet bounced off the turkey and killed the deer.

The handle fell off the gun, hit the snake in the head, and killed it. And, when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond.

When he stood up to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer, and a turkey for his family to eat.

The snake, (Satan), was dead simply because the man listened to God.

Moral of the story:
Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God.
