2 Corinthians 12:9
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
1986 and fresh out of high school, life’s compass was swirling like a ceiling fan. As any teen I had more dreams than a porcupine has quills. I sat, only sixteen feet from him on the other end of the boat on Lake Ouachita, and yet it seem like we were thousands of miles apart.
Behind his gentle attitude, soft voice and handsome smile sat more than a grandfather. He was a combat veteran of the 2nd World War. On the other side of his Purple Heart and Bronze Stars was a man of God, Guns, Guts and Glory.
Not once did he tell me about his experiences crossing the Rhine River, fighting in the battle of the bulge or serving under Gen. Patton, instead he quoted me the verses to his favorite song. .
1. There was a time on earth, when in the book of heaven, an old account was standing, of sins yet unforgiven. My name was at the top, and many things below, but I went unto the keeper and settled long ago. .
2. When at the Judgment bar, I stand before my king, and he the book will open, and cannot find a thing, then will my heart be glad, while tears of Joy will flow, because I had it settled, and settled long ago. .
He chose to tell me about his most prize possession outside of his family, the knowledge of the sufficient grace of God. Our prayer for you today is, for you to experience the sufficiency of God’s grace. -Bro. J. Shields .
