Pull Biscuit! “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (NRSV)The words of Jesus in Matthew 26:20
A story is told about a man whose truck slid off the road and ended up in a ditch. A farmhouse was nearby so the man 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 farmer.
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. If he thought he was the only one pulling your truck it would still be in the ditch.”
Funny story that makes a good point. There is something about believing that we are not alone, that motivates and empowers us. Think about it. It’s why we do church. Belonging to a church reminds one another that we do not walk alone. To place ourselves in a community of believers who are on the same journey. To 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 that I am part of such a great fellowship of believers. We all pull for each other. Please help us do more pulling as we try to have 70 in attendance for the next two Sundays. We are calling next Sunday, “Come Back to Church Sunday.” Let’s invite others to come and hear the Award Winning “Branded” in Concert. Don’t forget, Sunday School is at 9:00 a.m.
Next Sunday, we will have more to say about the “Good Friday Service” on April 2.
