THE SILENT SERMON
A member of a certain church, who previously had been attending services regularly, stopped going. After a few weeks, the preacher
decided to visit him.
It was a chilly evening. The pastor found the man at home alone, sitting before a blazing fire. Guessing the reason for his preacher's visit,
the man welcomed him, led him to a comfortable chair near the
fireplace...and waited.
The preacher made himself at home but said nothing. In the grave silence, he contemplated the dance of the flames around the burning
logs. After some minutes, the preacher took the fire tongs, carefully
picked up a brightly burning ember and placed it to one side of the
hearth all alone, then he sat back in his chair, still silent.

The host watched all this in quiet contemplation. As the one lone
ember's flame flickered and diminished, there was a momentary glow and
then its fire was no more. Soon it was cold and dead.

Not a word had been spoken since the initial greeting. The preacher glanced
at his watch and realized it was time to leave. He slowly stood up,
picked up the cold, dead ember and placed it back in the middle of the
fire. Immediately it began to glow, once more with the light and
warmth of the burning coals around it.

As the preacher reached the door to leave, his host said with a tear running down his cheek,
'Thank you so much for your visit and especially for the firey sermon.
I will be back in church next Sunday.'

We live in a world today, which tries to say too much with too little. Consequently, few listen. Sometimes the best sermons are the ones left unspoken.

The Lord is my Shepherd ----- that's a Relationship!

I shall not want ----- that's Supply!

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures ----that's Rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters -----that's Refreshment!

He restoreth my soul -- that's Healing!

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness -- that's Guidance!

For His name's sake ----- that's Purpose!

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death --that's Testing!

I will fear no evil ----- that's Protection!

For Thou art with me ----- that's Faithfulness!

Thy rod and Thy staff comfort me -----that's Discipline!

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies ---that's Hope!

Thou annointest my head with oil -----that's Consecration!

My cup runneth over ----- that's Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life ---that's Blessing!

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord ----- that's Security!

Forever ----- that's Eternity!


Face it, God is crazy about you!


Send this to the people you are crazy about. I thought this was pretty special, just like YOU!
What is most valuable is not what we have in our lives, but WHO we have in our lives.
