Hello everyone, Jack Blankenship here.
This blog today is about a testimony that touched my heart in a mighty way.
Pastor Don MacLafferty has written a book named simply FOLLOW Anytime, Anywhere, At any cost
He gave me seven copies to use for God's purposes. These books were not sold to the public if I remember correctly, but given to various people he knew. I have read the copy I kept for my own library a few times now.
I keep coming back to something he began the book with, and it IS a testimony that will reward you as well.
TESTIMONY: Is a note from the author of the book FOLLOW.
Excerpt from "FOLLOW"
A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
My friend more than anything else in all the world, I
want you to know Jesus! I am not satisfied with your
just knowing the facts about Him. I want you to know
Jesus for all He is.
Jesus brings positive change into every day of my life.
He changes the way I love my wife, the way I invest
in our children, the way I treat my friends and the
way I love difficult people. He gives me hope when I
feel hopeless and a daily purpose to live, to love and to lead.
Countless times He has forgiven me when I have
wronged Him and others. His forgiveness and
uncompromising love moves my heart and fills me
with great love and desire to follow Him. I have not
found anyone on the six continents I have traveled
who loves me like Jesus!
I invite you to explore Jesus through each chapter
and follow wherever He may lead you. He will love you forever.
Why not discover who He is for yourself?
(FROM THE BACK COVER)
Have you found anything so good that you would go anytime,
anywhere, at any price just for the love of it? There was a movement
of people in the first century who found something that good. They
found Jesus and were deeply shaken to know that anyone would
love them that much! These early followers of Jesus turned their
world upside down as they lived a transformed life. The peace on
their faces, the obvious love in their families, and life-giving
power of their lives moved their friends to want what they had discovered.
I thank my Christian brother and his family for handing me this book,
it has definitely warmed my heart and been a blessing to my life.
