Bridging the Gap

Part of our team at LifeLight attended the Mark Schultz concert, where World Vision  had invited us to join them with a table of  Bibles ,as they continue to speak for the children of the world who go without food and water and try to bring aid to those who are less fortunate then we in Canada. Our role at LifeLight was to provide Bibles if there where any people in the crowd who wanted to give one to a friend or needed one for themselves.

We gave away over 20 Bibles last night, but one story reminds me of the power in God's word.

A man came in off the street just as the show was starting, not part of the concert crowd and asked for a Bible. He looked tired and worn out. Calvery from the Calvery Temple Church (cool to work for a church with your own name)brought him to our table and the man explained that he had lost his way in life, but remembered that when he used to read his Bible, it guided  him, helped him stay on track with God and his family. We gave him a copy of our LifeLight Bible and we prayed with him, and with tears in his eyes he thanked us over and over again for the Bible and our prayers. The man told us that he was now ready to stay on the right path with God, and that his new Bible would be the light that guided him.

What a powerful reminder of what Gods word can do for you and me. 

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. (Psalms 119:105 NLT)
