Engine Driver

Engine Driver on Steam TrainOnce a man came to Charles Spurgeon, (1834-1892) the great Reformed preacher, and told him that since he was now saved he wanted to help bring people to Jesus Christ. Spurgeon looked at him. "What do you do for a living?" said Charles. "I'm an engine driver," the man responded. "Is your fireman a Christian?" asked Spurgeon. "I don't know," he replied. "Well find out; and if he's not, start on him!"

Sharing What We Are

Discussion groupOne of the late Johny Cash's (1932-2003) songs was entitled "I talk to Jesus everyday." Everyday talk is the sharing of what we are as Christians people with those around us. More often than not our everyday talk is with those who know us best, our friends and family. We share most effectively by being ourselves with our friends in the coffee shop. Those we work with, or go to school or university with, figure much more prominently in our talk than the unsaved throngs across the seas.

Heals Legion

Jesus heals LegionThe Biblical story of the healing of a man named Legion exemplified this for me. He had been tormented by demons and terrorized those who lived nearby but was remarkably pacified and put at peace by Jesus. Today his story would have been made into a bestseller, even into a movie! But what did Jesus tell him? He said in Mark 5.19-20 "Go back home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you and how kind he has been to you" If we go, what do we do then? We do our Jesus everyday talk. Once we have said our piece, we then need to listen.✞
