smile for the day

An elderly woman returned to her home from an evening of Church services when she was startled by an intruder.
She had caught a man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables.
 "Stop!" she yelled,
 "Acts 2:38!"
(Repent and be baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven).

The burglar stopped dead in his tracks and froze while the woman calmly called the police and explained the situation.
As the officer was cuffing him, he asked the burglar,
"Just out of curiosity, why did you just stand there?
All the old lady did was yell a scripture at you."
 "Scripture?!" gasped the burglar.
"She said she had an ax… and two 38's!!"

It's a funny joke, yes,
 but on a serious note —
I think we often underestimate the power of the Word of God!
We have the source so very close — its right at our fingertips and should be right on our lips!
 Yet, we neglect to declare it over our circumstances, that we may see the victory!

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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.

I love this post. The word of God definitely needs to be quicker on my lips! I did get a little chuckle out of your joke. Was that a true story? It seems like I heard something similar recently?
