Another One for Jesus!


But did He not make them one, having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring.
Malachi 2:15

Raymond Riggs grew up in the age of large families, and every year or so during his childhood he’d be sent to neighbors for a couple of days while his mother had another baby. One year his mom’s labor pains came too quickly, and Raymond heard everything through the thin walls of the family’s tenant house. “As a boy who had never experienced anything like this, I was all ears,” he recalled. “I heard Mrs. Clark give instructions to my mother. Finally, after severe labor pains, I heard the cry of a newborn baby. I heard my mother shout, and then she said, ‘Thank the Lord, Ernest. Here’s another one for Jesus!’”

Sure enough, Raymond and his siblings all grew up to serve the Lord.

No home is perfect, and we all struggle with faults and failures under the roof. But when Christ comes into a home, He helps us raise godly offspring. The joys of being raised in a Christian household cannot be overstated. Love thrives when Christ is the center of the home, and we long for every child to be “another one for Jesus.”

That's me in a nutshell. Love me or hate me.... that would be subject to your interpretation of the truth, and what is the truth??? Well, that's a loaded question.... go read the Bible.. if that's your thing
