GOD’S ELECT – FOOLS FOR CHRIST’S SAKE!

GOD’S ELECT – FOOLS FOR CHRIST’S SAKE!

When the Lord called me 36 years ago, I really did forsake all to follow Him! You could say I literally walked out on a limb and sawed it off! I lost many things which were very dear to me – my parents, my girlfriend my best friends and even my job!

Many look at my life and say that I was a fool to have done what I did! To burn all my bridges and follow an unseen God for a ‘pie in the sky’!

But as a good old quote by Jim Elliot says – “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose.”

The story is told of a man who was walking down the busy streets of London with a quote written in bold on the front of his tall hat. It read – “I am a fool for Christ’s sake”! Some saw it and snickered. And as he passed by some turned around to take another look at him, and saw he had written on the back of his hat – “whose fool are YOU”?!

Everybody is somebody’s fool! I was chosen to be a fool for Christ’s sake as all true Christians are! [1Cor 4:10]

WHOSE FOOL ARE YOU?!
