Trying To Be A Christian

Portrait of an Old Woman

A visitor asked an old bedridden woman who said she was trying to be a Christian:

“Are you trying to be Mrs. Whyte?”

“No, I am Mrs. Whyte.”

“How long have you been Mrs. Whyte?”

“Ever since this ring was put on my finger.”

“That is how it is with me. I do not try to be a Christian. I have been one ever since I put out my empty hand and received Christ as my Saviour.”

  2. I thought it was a great little illustration of salvation!

    Thanks for the comment about the "new look." I was wanting something simple for Christmas.
