I share with you the story of a businessman from southern Colorado, who long before he was a business success, a husband, and a father, was selected by Christ to draw a crucial line in the picture of my life. In all gratitude, I must acknowledge what this friend did for me.
This article is one huge reason I read Spectrum, why I stay an Adventist, why I keep my friends, why I cling to Jesus: selfless, unadorned love demonstrated by action. In a world of misdirection and calculated talk, nothing else comes even close.
“The kingdom of God lies not in talk but in power” (1 Cor. 4:20, RSV).
Thank you, Kent, for this poignant rendering and resonating reminder.
“When Jesus comes and tells Don what Don did for him, I imagine Don will ask, “When did I do that for you, Jesus?” (See Matthew 25:31-40). I will be one of the answers.”
Kent Hansen…my favorite graduate school professor (at La Sierra, by the way)…you have touched our hearts with your beautiful story…proving once again, that in the most ubiquitous way, the one thing that the sheep and goats have in common in Jesus’ parable, is that neither group will know how they got there!
