There are Two Kinds of People

When Charles asked Frances to marry him back in December 1969, her answer was from the Word of God: “Wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.” (Ruth 1:16).

The years sped by, and in 2006, after Charles had back surgery, the doctors put him in a rehabilitation hospital. Frances laughed as she told me, “So, I put myself right in that hospital. He won’t go without me, anyway. Where he lodges, I lodge!” When they put Charles in a nursing home, Frances moved right in with him. “I don’t care,” she exclaimed.

“Wherever he lodges, I will lodge.” She continued, “I think it’s incredible that I’m ninety years old. We are the oldest people in the nursing home, and yet we are the youngest because we are the only ones in here that still work! Nobody else has a purpose in life; we still have a purpose—to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ!”

The above excerpt is from the book God’s Generals. And it is the story of a couple I have come to love and have deep respect for. They were completely sold out to Jesus. Nothing else mattered anymore to them.

If they were not actively preaching the gospel or healing the sick, they were thinking about how they could reach more souls.

At the end of the day, the only thing that will matter when we stand before God is this one thing: Do you know Jesus? Because there are TWO kinds of people in this world; those who are saved and those who are about to be (I learned this from Charles and Frances Hunter).

Which one are you? The bible says in Romans 10:9 that if you believe in your heart that God raised Christ from the dead, and confess with your mouth that Jesus is the Lord, you will be SAVED. Jesus is the only way to salvation.

You can pray that prayer even right now because God is everywhere and will always hear you when you sincerely call on Him.

There is salvation in JESUS!! It is not too late to reach out to God for help yet.

I pray that the peace of God dwells with you this new week and beyond in Jesus name. Amen!!
