Billy's Bait Works

When Diana taught her class there was a man named Billy in it-a mechanic. In the first class he stood and gave the reason he was taking the class. As I remember, he said something like “I used to talk to people but no one ever got saved and I guess I got tired of getting beat up”…he sort of hung his head and sat down… (I could not get this testimony out of my head.)

Today she heard this news from Billy-

A few weeks ago a man came in to get his oil changed. After seeing one of the Million Dollar Bills that Billy leaves in the customer waiting area, he told Billy that he found one like it on the ground at the local mall. He picked it up, but when he discovered it wasn’t real he said that he threw it back down in the parking lot. Billy told him that the message on the back was very important and he should read it.

As Billy changed his oil the customer read the tract. When the car was finished, he left.

He came back today for another service and Billy stopped him and asked him what he thought of the message on that tract. The man told Billy that the message on that tract has changed his life. He no longer runs around on his wife and he has surrendered to Christ!! He attends church regularly now.

Praise God for He is at work!!!!!!!!!!!!! The power is not in the messenger-only the Message. It isn't about the delivery but what we have to deliver!

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
