True Friendship In Action

Recently, before putting the Bible away that my mom uses for Bible time at our house, I opened the front cover to see what the publication date was on it. That date was 1973, but I also found something very special—a handwritten note on the inside cover to my Uncle Dick (Richard) from a now-unknown friend, Jason.

Jason was obviously a good enough friend of my uncle’s to give him a gift that offers the truth of eternal life along with a personal testimony. I am very grateful for friends who loved my uncle enough to reach out to him and invest in him spiritually. I want to be that kind of friend who cares for the souls of others.

Trusting in Jesus,
Teri

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he
that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the
wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:36).

  1. What a powerful note and beautiful gift! This is really encouraging to me to not miss just giving people a Bible to read it for themselves.

  2. You ARE that kind of friend! I appreciate your encouraging words so much, and that you are somehow not too busy to offer them to me. You are a Titus 2 woman for sure. I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your family!

  3. Hi Teri,
    What a beautiful inscription and handwriting.
    I picked up a Bible once in a second hand Christian shop and it simply had written in side “SIN WILL KEEP YOU FROM READING THIS BOOK”
    “THIS BOOK WILL KEEP YOU FROM SIN”
    It was written in an old Bible and in an old hand, i came home and wrote it in mine!
    So basic and so true!
    Lots of love to you all.
    Xxxxxxxx
