I was spending quality time with my sister last week, enjoying her brand new giant television with its one million channels. As she was searching through the sea of programs, the word "Hillsong" caught my eye. She kindly allowed me to watch a few moments of this televised concert and we listened to the amazing australian accent of the pastor on stage. He was telling a story of a man who came up to him after one of his sermons who said that, although the pastor did a fine job preaching, he thought that christianity was nothing more than a crutch. The pastor thought to himself, "I hope you break both of your legs!" and then reassured his audience that it was just a THOUGHT! Hahahaha!
He went on to say that he asked this young man, "If you couldn't get around on your own, would you appreciate the use of a wheelchair?" "Yes," said the man. "And if you could only use one leg, would you want the ability to use crutches?" "Yes," said the man. So the pastor summed up his point by saying, "You see, I am a broken person. We are all broken people. And I am thankful that I have Jesus to lean on. So if you want to say that we're all using a crutch, well, that's fine with me. I'm happy to have it."
I thought it was amazing!! Had to share! :)
