A little boy was converted by reding the New Testament. One day his dog tore a page from his New Testament. The boy told his preacher about the dog eating the page, explaining that he was worried.
The preacher said, “If that dog can eat other beasts and not be hurt, a page from the Bible won’t hurt him either.” The child replied, “When I read the Bible, it made me love my enemies and forgive everyone. Now my dog will forgive all the wild beasts and be their friend.”
Here was a very promising little boy. He was thinking for himself. It is positively true that old time religion changes the nature of men. The Bible teaches, “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away. Behold all things are become new.”
If you are a changed person and your life now has a different tint, and your steps lead in a different direction, they you can say, “I’m following Christ.”
