THE DIVER





Subject: Faith
Phil. 4:13
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

*********************************************************
A young man who had been raised as an atheist was training to be
an Olympic diver. The only religious influence in his life came from
his outspoken Christian friend.  The young diver never really paid
much attention  to his friend's sermons, but he heard them
often.  One night the diver went to the indoor pool at the college
he attended. The lights were all off, but as the pool had big
skylights and the moon was bright, there was plenty of light to practice by. 
The young man climbed up to the highest  diving board and as he turned his
backto the pool on the edge of the board and extended his arms out, he
saw his shadow on the wall.  The shadow of his body, was in the shape of a cross.
Instead of diving, he knelt down and finally asked God to come
into his life. As the young man stood, a maintenance man walked in and
turned the lights on. The pool had been drained for repairs. 

Remember this,

Yes I do Love Jesus. He is my source of existence and Savior. 
He keeps me functioning each and everyday. 
Without Him, I will be nothing.  
Without him, I am nothing 
but with Him I can do all
things through Christ that strengthens me.

Phil 4:13
