MY DAD'S SPIRITUAL LEGACY

Imagine being in a house full of Christians, all of whom have come to know the Lord as a direct result of the Gospel message being proclaimed by your dad.

My dad was a pastor. During his time of preaching God's Word, a whole family of seven children accepted Christ. These people are all faithfully serving God and proclaiming His name in various locations and capacities around the nation.

My dad passed away over 2 years ago, at the age of 92, but my mom recently had the wonderful privilege of being with this large family, all in one room, gathered for a meal. What an experience that must have been! Because of distance I was not able to be there, but I did call my mom on the phone. It just so happened(by God's timing of course) that they were all getting ready to pray before the meal, so I still got to pray with them. What a testimony to the loving grace of God and leading of the Holy Spirit to put into my thoughts right at that time, to call my mom.

My dad would not want the glory, but what a tribute to him--to have an entire physical and spiritual family to live on after he has passed.
WOW! But isn't this the way it ought to be for each one of us, not just pastors or missionaries.
Each of us can have people living on after we have left this earthly life who have been spiritually changed because of our lives and message.

I love you dad. What an example you were.

Nice to hear accounts like this John. very special. Not all of us experienced anything remotely like it. A difficult experience with one's dad oftentimes leads to a distorted image of God. Men tend to view God as a supersized dad so to speak. Which is great if your dad was nice. At a men's prison, a local church made handmade cards for Mother's day and made them available to prisoners. they were ALL snatched right up. So they church did the same thing for Father's day. guess what, very few were taken...... What does that say??? Men, if you can, please realize your impact on your kids. If you didn't grow up in a loving home like John did, YOU be the one to break the cycle, hard as it may be! the dividends though will never stop!
