A young man was teaching in a mission school in East Africa. Before Christmas, he had been telling the local children how Christians gave each other presents as an expression of their joy at Christmas time.
On Christmas morning, a boy around ten years old brought the teacher a seashell of great beauty. When asked where he had discovered such a magnificent shell the boy said that he had walked many kilometres to a certain bay, the only spot where such shells could be found.
" I think it was wonderful of you to travel so far to get this lovely gift for me," the teacher exclaimed.
His eyes brightening, the boy replied, "Long walk part of the gift."
Jesus made the long journey to earth to show us how much God loves us.
"God so love the world that he gave His only Son that whosoever believes in him will have eternal life." John 3:16
A Mennonite saying: '' We are living in the time of God's patience."
WHAT MAKES A PERSON A CHRISTIAN?
Not "being good",
Not "going to church"
Not "reading the Bible"?
Sure, any of these people MIGHT be real Christians,
but they're not Christians
BECAUSE of what they do -
they do those things
BECAUSE they're Christians.
Jesus will help you take that step,
if you honestly ask Him (PRAY)
- in fact that is the first step ...
the second step is to start
letting Him help you live His way.
