Quite awhile ago, Lee befriended a Druid in the prison.
Yes, I said a Druid. This man grew up in a Christian home and supposedly has a conversion testimony.
He asked Lee some questions and Lee referred him to our Pastor.
Pastor wrote to him a few times.
The other day in church, Pastor relayed this story.
The Druid wrote to Pastor asking him how to get the Word of God out of his head.
Pastor told him that he can’t and even if he could “get the Word of God out of his head” Pastor wouldn’t tell him how to do it anyway.
The man said that it’s just that everytime he tries to do what he wants to do Bible verses come to his mind.
Isn’t that awesome? I laughed about that actually–in a good way.
Do you see how important it is to memorize Scripture? I think of all the verses James and the other children learn in AWANA. Those verses will come to their mind for the rests of their lives even when they want to do wrong.
For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword…. and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
