Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
Message – This will be my final Podcast. While I am still active with the Advanced Studies here at SLM, I am no longer the department director. Thus, another one of my duties will pass into other hands.
I want to thank all of you, our listeners – some who haven’t missed a Podcast… Thank you for your kind words, your prayers and your encouragement. Let me share as I close a personal word of testimony.
I came to Christ as an 11 year old at a Bible Camp. But shortly after, I tried to take a stand as a Christian and under the pressure of my peers, I failed so miserably that I was sure I had lost my salvation. I spent the next five years running away from God, until my wild life put me in a hospital with less than a 50/50 chance to live.
On that hospital bed I surrendered my entire life to God and not only did He miraculously heal me, but he raised me up to serve Him – and that was 67 years ago. He has taken me around the world and allowed me more joy than I could ever have imagined. He has displayed His power through my ministry and allowed me to see scores of people from many nations come to trust Him just as I once did.
I cannot conceive of a better life and I can’t imagine anyone wanting to do anything other than serving the Lord Jesus Christ.
I am grateful for every privilege and for the privilege of ministering to you. I hope you have been blessed, and if you do not yet know Jesus, I hope something I’ve said will draw you to Him. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.
