ARE YOU THIRSTY?
Have you ever been so thirsty that you can’t imagine going one more second without something to quench your thirst? All that you can think about is finding even one sip of cold, refreshing water. Our bodies crave water. In fact, the human body can only survive a few days without it.

How about your soul—is it thirsty? Do you feel that something is missing in your life? Maybe you’ve tried to fill the void by staying busy with work or friends. Perhaps you’ve sought satisfaction in buying new things. Some even try to quench their inner thirst with relationships, parties, alcohol, or drugs.

A Little Girl Seeks a Preacher to Get Her Dying Mother Into Heaven (Gospel Light Minute X #370)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #370 titled, “A Little Girl Seeks a Preacher to Get Her Dying Mother Into Heaven.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

A well-known preacher was about to retire for the evening when there was a knock at his front door. Opening the door, he saw a poorly dressed little girl drenched from the rain. She had walked through the rainstorm from her home in the slum district to find the preacher. As he stood looking down into her thin, haggard little face, she inquired, “Are you the preacher?”

“Yes, I am a preacher,” he replied softly.

“Well won’t you come down and ‘get my mother in’?” she asked. The preacher wisely answered this little inquirer:

“My dear, it is hardly proper for me to come and ‘get your mother in’. If she is drunk, you should get a police officer. He is better qualified and properly dressed for the occasion.”

“Oh no sir,” she replied in haste and with more urgency in her small voice. “You don’t understand! My mother is not drunk; she is home in bed, dying, and she is afraid to die. She wants to go to Heaven, but does not know how,” He told her that he would help her find a preacher to “get her mother in.” She paused briefly, “NO! You must come quickly, sir; she is dying! Please! We don’t have time to wait.” Continue reading “A Little Girl Seeks a Preacher to Get Her Dying Mother Into Heaven (Gospel Light Minute X #370)”

How to Make the Lord Your Shepherd (Gospel Light Minute X #364)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #364 titled, “How to Make the Lord Your Shepherd .” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

The Bible reads in Psalm 23: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”

The words of Psalm 23 have brought comfort to millions the world over. They tell of the Lord’s desire to refresh His people and of His faithfulness to guide them safely through all of life’s trials—and even death—to His heavenly home.
