This past Sunday one of our senior ladies was looking for me following her Bible Study class. As Hazel walked towards me with the assistance of her walker I knew she had a prayer concern to share or a story of her family. We’ve shared moments like these before. But this time it was different, she had something exciting to share with me, something that had occurred before she arrived at church.
Hazel had the opportunity to share Jesus with someone. As she shared her faith with this woman seeds were planted. She shared scripture with a person who had no faith, in a loving manner. The belief system of Hazel’s new friend was really non-existent. That did not matter to Hazel. It was evident to me that Hazel’s only concern was that her friend hear the gospel and know how salvation could be experienced.
Wow! What an example Hazel is. A ninety-five year old believer still living out her faith before others. Obeying her Lord’s command to go and share. The message never gets old. A message that EVERY believer – no matter our age – needs to share with whomever God brings into our life.
Thanks Hazel …. Thank You God for Hazel and her example.
