Wanted to Share this with All.

I received this morning from a christian friend and just fell like I needed to share this with everyone.

This is truly the way we are to love our fellow man and help them to come to know our Lord and Savior. God is Good.

Now this is The 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 for his entire four years of college.

He is brilliant. Kind of profound and very, very bright. He became a Christian while attending college.

Across the street from the campus is a well-dressed, very conservative church. They want to develop a ministry to the students but are not sure how to go about it.

One day Bill decides to go there. He walks in with no shoes, jeans, his T-shirt, and wild hair. The service has already started and so Bill starts 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 a bit 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.

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.

Now the deacon is in his eighties, has silver-gray hair, and a three-piece suit. A godly man, very elegant, very dignified, very courtly. He walks with a cane and, as he starts walking toward this boy, everyone is saying to themselves that you can't blame him for what he's going to do.

How can you expect a man of his age and of his background to understand some college kid on the floor?

It takes a long time for the man to reach the boy.

The church is utterly silent except for the clicking of the man's cane. All eyes are focused on him. You can't even hear anyone breathing. The minister can't even preach the sermon until the deacon does what he has to do.

And now they see this elderly man drop his cane on the floor. With great difficulty, he lowers himself and sits down next to Bill and worships with him so he won't be alone.

Everyone chokes up with emotion.

When the minister gains control, he says, "What I'm about to preach, you will never remember. What you have just seen, you will never forget. Be careful how you live. You may be the only Bible some people will ever read!"

I asked the Lord to bless you
As I prayed for you today.
To guide you and protect you
As you go along your way....
His love is always with you,
His promises are true,
And when we give Him all our cares,
You know He will see us through.

Only if you feel led to, pass this to
People you want God to Bless.

What a Great Day this is in Virginia

Thought I would share this with everyone this morning.


A man dies and goes to Heaven. Saint Peter

meets him at the Pearly Gates and says, "Ok,

here's how it works. You need 100 points to

make it into Heaven. You tell me all the good

things you've done, and I'll award you a certain

number of points for each item, depending on

how good it was. When you reach 100 points,

you get in."

"Okay," the man says... "I was married to the

same woman for 50 years and never once

cheated on her, even in my heart."

"That's wonderful," says Saint Peter, "That's

worth three points!" "Three points?" he asks.

"Well, I attended church all my life and

supported its ministry with my tithes and service."

"Terrific!" says Saint Peter, "That's certainly

worth a point." "One point?!!

Hey, I started a soup kitchen in my city and

worked in a shelter for homeless veterans!"

"Fantastic, that's good for two more points, "

Saint Peter says.

"Two points?!!" the man cries.

"At this rate, the only way I'm going to get

into Heaven is by the Grace of God!"

"Bingo, 100 points! Come on in."
