“Pull, Biscuit!”

“And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
– the words of Jesus in Matthew 28:20 (NRSV)

I have probably used this illustration before, but I think we all need to read this again. A story is told about a guy whose car slid off the road and ended up in a ditch.  A farmhouse was nearby so the motorist asked the owner if he had a tractor, he could borrow to get his truck back on the road.

“Nope, but I got my mule, Blue,” said the farmer.

“I doubt a mule is strong enough to pull my truck out,” said the stranded motorist.

“You don’t know Blue,” said the mule’s proud owner.

So Blue was hitched to the truck.  “Pull, Blue!” The truck didn’t move. And the farmer then called out, “Pull, Elmer!” The truck moved a little.  Then the farmer yelled, “Pull, Biscuit!” and the truck was free.

“Thank you so much,” said the truck owner.  “But I have a question.  You called your mule by three different names.  How is that?”

“Simple,” said the farmer.  “Blue is blind.  And if he thought he was the only one pulling, your truck would still be in the ditch!”

Funny story that makes a great point… There is something about believing that we are not alone, that motivates us and empowers us.  Think about it.  It’s why we go to church. Belonging to a church reminds one another that we never walk alone.  To place ourselves in a community of believers who are on the same journey.  Let’s be the hands and feet of Christ to each other and to the world, so that they too can experience the power of His presence.

I am glad to get to be a part of such a great fellowship of believers.  We all pull for each other.  Please try to be apart of the various opportunities for Bible Study and Ministry Teams.

Thanks for pulling and praying for me.  Remember, I am pulling and praying for you!
