100-Year-Old Christian

by | May 7, 2016 | Christ-in-me, Christ-in-us

There was a 100 year old church member who was having his birthday celebration at his church he had faithfully attended since he was a young man. At his birthday celebration, after everyone had cake, ice cream, gave him cards and gifts in the fellowship hall, the entire group of family and friends, numbering over 100 people, were asked to come to the church sanctuary. His great grandson, a young man in his early thirties, had him come to the pulpit. Before most of the church congregation, he was asked the question, in a loud voice, “Great Grandpa, we all know that you can barely hear and you cannot see, so tell us, why do you still go to church every Sunday?”

The 100 year old, faithful Christian, answered, “Because I love Jesus with all my heart, He commanded me to be here and I just want to show everybody whose side I’m on.”
