Another Special Life in Christ
These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!
"Will work for
My fellow church member and friend, Margaret
Pratt, told us of her Christian brother-in-law (A. B. Skelton) who owned a repair business in
Greenville, S. C.. One day in about 1960, a man came in and asked for a job...there was none.
"Please, mister, I need money to feed my wife and children!" So, Mr. Skelton was moved to
reply, "As long as I can find work for the business, you've got a job."
Mr. S. often invited
the man to church, but he declined. After two years, the worker left. Then, 10 years later,
that worker came back by the shop for a visit and told Mr. S., "I want to thank you for the
day you gave me that job. I've become a Christian. That day 10 years ago I was at the end of
my rope and had made up my mind to rob a bank if you had said no."
Mr. S's life was a low-key
witness to hundreds. Margaret Pratt's husband, Jack, told me that he had known A. B. for 50
years and only heard him raise his voice once. "He was the same man the other six days of the
week that he was on Sunday." At least 6 men under his influence went on to be pastors. When
he died in 1996, his widow received over 50 unsolicited letters (a stack 8 inches high) from
people claiming to have been greatly impacted toward Christianity through his life.
with Mr. Skelton's wonderful example, won't you make a decision to at least let God work
through you right where you are?
***give me your comments about this
You have just read a very brief example of the
powerful, supernatural transformation of a person's life which is possible through the
acceptance of Jesus as your savior. Are you tired of life as it now is for you? He will
accept you just as you are right this second! Consider accepting Jesus now
