Fun Friday: Preacher's Donkey



The Preacher's Donkey
A man bought a donkey from a preacher. The preacher told the man that this donkey had been trained in a very unique way (being the donkey of a preacher).


The only way to make the donkey go was to say, "Hallelujah!"



The only way to make the donkey stop was to say, "Amen!"



The man was pleased with his purchase and immediately got on the animal to try out the preacher's instructions.


"Hallelujah!" shouted the man. The donkey began to trot. "Amen!" shouted the man. The donkey stopped immediately. "This is great!" said the man. With a "Hallelujah" he rode off, very proud of his new purchase.


The man traveled for a long time through the mountains. As he headed towards a cliff, he tried to remember the word to make the donkey stop.


"Stop," said the man. "Halt!" he cried. The donkey just kept going. "OH, NO . . ." "Bible...Church!...Please! Stop!!" shouted the man. The donkey just began to trot faster. He was getting closer and closer to the edge of the cliff.


Finally, in desperation, the man said a prayer: "Please, dear Lord. Please make this donkey stop before I go off the end of this mountain. In Jesus' name, AMEN."


The donkey came to an abrupt stop just one step from the edge of the cliff.



"HALLELUJAH!" shouted the man.

Thrive In Christ

Who I Am In Christ by Neil Anderson

For several months we will center on this book to pursue Thriving in our Christian journey.

Neil challenges us with: "Do you know who you are in God's eyes? We are no longer products of our past. We are primarily products of Christ's work on the cross. Who we are determines what we do.

You are not who you are in Christ because of the things you have done, you are in Christ because of what He has done. He died and rose again so that you and I could live in the FREEDOM of His love."

That's just the introduction. More to follow.
