Ripples

For Sunday October 23, 2022

Psalm 22:30
A posterity shall serve Him. It will be recounted of the Lord to the next generation.

Just as tossing a stone into a lake creates ripples to the shoreline, so our simple acts of witness produce results that extend to the return of Christ.

Early one Sunday, a young man dragged himself home from a night of partying. As an instructor at Tampa’s Arthur Murray dance studio, he was single, popular, and unhindered by morality. He collapsed into bed, setting his radio alarm for midafternoon. When the radio came on, he was jolted awake by the preaching of Donald Barnhouse, who was asking, “Suppose you were to die today and stand before God, and He asked you, ‘What right do you have to enter into my heaven?’—what would you say?”

That’s the moment the Holy Spirit touched D. James Kennedy, who became one of America’s eminent pastors and is now with the Lord. At the time, however, no one knew the results of that broadcast. It was unknown to Dr. Barnhouse, to the producers of the show, to the supporters who had given their gifts to put it on the air, or to the workers in the studio. Only heaven could tabulate the results.

Do all the good you can by all the means you can.
JOHN WESLEY
