Acts 2:38

A woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church services, when she was startled by an intruder. She caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled: 'Stop! Acts 2:38!'(Repent and be Baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins may be forgiven.)

The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.

As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar: 'Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you.'

'Scripture?' replied the burglar. 'I thot she said she had an Ax and Two 38s!'

Knowing scripture can save your life - in more ways than one!

Sure, holding a cross won't work. Keep His Words in the heart that we could utter at any time.

I'm not very good at memorizing scripture, but there are a few that cross my mind all the time.

How very blessed are the children of Christ, that we have His words with us!
