I remember a story about an elderly woman, that faithfully walked to church, everytime the doors were opened. She would always smile and greet the neighbors along the way. One day, she didn't come. Another day passed, and still, she didn't come to church. One man, that had seen her walking to that church, year after year, got up off his porch, and went to the church, to find out why she wasn't coming. The pastor, explained that she had passed away. The man was so moved, by her dedication and silent testimony. that he asked, how he could be like her. He found out that her dedication was because she accepted JESUS as her PERSONAL SAVIOR. Soon afterwards, he accepted JESUS as his PERSONAL SAVIOR and followed through with Believer's Baptism. The old woman, had made such an impact on him, that he never missed another opportunity to be in church, and was a great testimony to many others. He was known through out the community as the man who brought others to CHRIST.
We don't always understand that how we act, is being noticed, by non-believers. It is through our actions, that the LORD is revealed. The LORD knows our heart, and HE knows, whose heart has been prepared to RECIEVE HIM.
