    Children's Bible stories [URL removed--advertising not permitted] help us to encourage our children to study the Bible. It is also a way to impart learning and values as the Bible taught. Like the True Story of Noah's Ark and The Good Samaritan. You could try them to your children!

    I quite agree with you, Janice. I write a short chidren's story every day. Not always a Bible story, but I take my stories from everyday events and find some way to insert a scriptural or spiritual truth.

    All through my ministry, I used these stories during the morning service and told them just before we sent the children off to junior church. I have a collection of over 18,000 stories.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Janice we welcome you to BB providing you abide by the rules which you agreed to when you clicked that button that said "I agree."
    In both your posts you have given links to sites advertising various wares. This is not permitted. That is one violation broken in both of your posts.
    Secondly, your profile does not state your church affiliation, nor your denomination which leads us to ask you to post only in those areas that are for non-Baptist. If you notice this thread is in a Baptist Only section. There are other forums that you can post in. Posts in Baptist forums will just get deleted.

    Just a thought. Why don't you remove one of the duplicated posts on Hebrews 6....duplicated in General and theology forums?

    Cheers,

    Jim

    This is a sample of the stories I write:

    At a public meeting a famous actor was present. He was asked to recite something for the pleasure of the guests. He agreed. He asked if there was anything special his audience would like to hear. An aged minister said, "Sir, could you please recite the 23rd Psalm?"

    "I can, and will, providing you will recite it after me."

    Impressively, the great actor recited the Psalm. His voice was perfect. His intonation flawless. The audience was spellbound, and applauded loudly when he had finished.

    When he had finished, the aged minister rose and began, "The Lord IS my shepherd, I shall not lack..........." When he finished there was no applause. There was great silence. There was not a dry eye in the house. Many heads were bowed in reverence.

    The actor rose and, with great emotion, he said, "My friends, I have reached your eyes and ears, but the minister has reached your hearts. The difference is this: I kow the 23rd Psalm, but he knows the Shepherd."

    I was writing these on another forum.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Just another pulpit story:

    A changed life

    In Africa, there was a tribe of cannibals, who made humans a daily fare; they ate them. A missionary dared to visit with them and share the good news that Jesus loved them and died for them.

    Over time the cannibals came to know Jesus and turned their lives about. It was a total change for them, and they no longer considered other humans as food.

    They learned to read, and of course, the Bible was their text book. So, they were learning, not only how to become a Christian, but how to live the Christian life.

    This particular day a trader from Europe paid a visit to this tribe. He noticed that they were reading a book and asked, "What are you reading?"

    "The Bible, " they said with a smile on their faces.

    "Oh, you don't believe that book, do you?"

    "Friend, if we didn't believe this book, you would be cooking for our dinner now."

    Nothing can be more convincing than a changed life. We may not be cannibals, but we can spread good or evil by our very lives, and hence destroy a life with what we do.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Just another story:

    How glad we are that while we were yet sinners, God loved us. Long before we loved Him, He loved us with an everlasting love and planned to pour us out a blessing of redeeming grace.

    This is an actual testimony of a man who got off at the Pennsylvania Depot one day as a tramp.He had left home early on, and spent his life begging on the streets. A nickle here and a dime there, enough for a coffee and toast. It was not a pleasant life. His entire life was spent in absolute poverty.

    This particular morning he was feeling quite down and weak. In desperation, he tapped this one chap on the shoulder, and said, "Mister, cold I please have a dime?"

    As soon as the man turned about, the begger recognized him as his father. The father instantly stretched out his arms and hugged the beggar tightly. "Father, don't you know me?" he said over and over.

    "Yes, my son, I have finally found you. And look at you, begging in the streets for a dime, when you could have had all that is mine."

    Our heavenly Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills, why would we want to milk one cow? His arms stretch farther than we can imagine. Why settle for human failure?

    Reminds me of the song:

    "To write the love of God above
    Would drain the ocean dry;
    Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
    though stretched from sky to sky."

    Cheers, and God bless,

    Jim
