Tell them...before it's too late.

A Missionary that we know, Bro. Tilman...who works in Thailand with those that have leprosy, gave this testimony at our home church years ago, and I thought that I would share it with you today.

Bro. Tilman was a captain on a bus route in Atlanta, and one Sunday morning while he was on his route. A bus kid came to him and asked him to tell his sick brother about Jesus, Bro. Tilman looked at his watch, noted that they were going to be late for Sunday school if he did...and told the bus kid that he would tell him when they got back from church. When they got back from church Bro. Tilman took that boy home and went inside with him. When he asked to speak to the sick brother, he was informed that while they were gone at church...the boy had died.

Bro. Tilman lived with the guilt and regret of not going in and telling that sick boy about Jesus, all because he wanted to get to Sunday School on time. He told us at the church that day that he felt like he shut the door to Heaven on that little boy, and that is something that he is going to have to remember for the rest of his life.

Take the time...tell them...before it's too late!!!

Kristina I have heard this testimony and it always brings me back to how many people have we been to busy to talk to who will and die and go to Hell. I cringe at those I have passed by and hope that God gave them another chance. Thanks for sharing this sobering testimony.
