I recently attended the funeral of a long-time Christian radio vet, Larry Adcock. He helped get a new Christian radio station off the ground back in 1968 when few existed, and he died at the age of 76, still working actively at the station. It was truly his life's work. BUT, that's not what this is about. At his funeral I heard one of the most amazing testimonies that I just wanted to share it with you. A middle-age minister spoke during the service and this is his story:
"Larry and I hung around together when we were heathens. We did all the usual heathen stuff together and were really good friends. Then one day Larry "got saved". All I knew was he had become a religious nut and I didn't want to hang out with him anymore. I proceeded to continue down the old path until the day came that I'd just about destroyed everything around me. I was lost and without hope. But through all the years, Larry never lost touch with me. He never gave up on me. Although I didn't understand this whole "Christian" thing...I always knew that Larry cared about me. So, one day, at my lowest point, I called the one person I knew cared. Larry met with me immediately and I knelt in his office and received Jesus that day! I went home and shared the Good News with my wife and she got saved. My entire family trusted Christ." Now....you ready for the punchline? He has been pastoring a church for the last twenty years. His son now is also a pastor. Together they've reached countless lives for Christ. And it all started with the one guy that refused to give up. So the moral of the story? Think about that person you are ready to give up on. They are so far from the Lord. They seem to have no conscience. They look hopeless. DON'T GIVE UP! Keep that relationship alive and look for those God-given opportunities to share Christ with them. You never know what exponential impact your diligence may have!
