A pastor gathered a group of people from his church to train them to witness. After some minimal training, he sent the group out into the neighborhood.

When they returned to share their experiences, one young man said he had tried to tell an older gentleman about the love of Jesus. The old gentleman replied, “I feel none of the love of God. I feel nothing of God caring for my burdens. I am old and must take care of myself, shop for myself, and carry my groceries home from the store, by myself.”

One of the other participants remarked, “Perhaps if you had offered to carry his load for him, he would have believed your words because he would have experienced them firsthand in you.”

(From a sermon by Gaither Bailey, Is Your Name Written In Heaven? 7/1/2010)
