Above all you could

One night in a
church service a young woman felt the tug of God at her heart.
She responded to God's call and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior.
The young woman had a very rough past, involving alcohol, drugs and prostitution.
But, the change in her was evident. As time went on she became
a faithful member of the church. She
eventually became involved in the ministry, teaching young children.
It was not very long until this faithful young woman had caught the eye and heart of the pastor's son. The
relationship grew and they began to make wedding plans. This is when
the problems began. You see, about one half of the church did not think
that a woman with a past such as hers was suitable for a pastor's son.
The church began to argue and fight about the matter. So they decided to have a meeting. As the people
made their arguments and tensions increased, the meeting was getting completely out of hand..
The young woman became very upset about all the things being brought up about her past. As she began to cry the pastor's son stood to speak.
He could not bear the pain it was causing his wife to be. He began to speak and his statement was this:
"My fiancee's past is not what is on trial here. What you are questioning is the ability of the blood of Jesus to wash away sin. Today you have put the blood of Jesus on trial. So, does it wash away sin or not?"
The whole church began to weep as they realized that they had been slandering the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Too often, even as Christians, we bring up the past and use it as a weapon against our brothers and sisters.
Forgiveness is a very foundational part of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
If the blood of Jesus does not cleanse the other person completelythen it cannot cleanse us completely.
If that is the case, then we are all in a lot of trouble.
What can wash away my sins?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus! End of
As the story goes, a new church was built and people came
from far and wide to see it, and admire
its beauty. Up on the roof of the
church, a little nail heard the people praising everything about the
new structure, except the nail. No one even knew he was there and he became very
'If I am that insignificant, nobody will miss me if I
So the nail released its hold of the roof shingle it had been holding in place, then slid down the roof
and fell into a muddy patch of
That night it rained and rained, and the wind blew hard. Soon,
the shingle that had no nail holding
it in place blew away and the roof
began to leak. The water streaked the walls and the beautiful
plaster began to fall off the walls, the carpet was stained and the pulpit was
damaged. All this because a little nail decided to quit.
what of the nail? While holding the shingle, it was obscure, but it was also
very useful. Buried
in the mud it was just as obscure, but now it was of no
use and would soon by eaten up by rust.
We should always remember that
every human being is important. Like the nail, you may feel
times, but just like the nail, your absence is always felt. When you are not
other's lives, in some way they hurt and will miss you.
