Nothing in the world so cheers the heart and thrills the soul as does the remembrance of what Christ has done for us–it should be forever on our mind! A good example of this is found in the story of an old Indian chief who constantly spoke of the Lord Jesus and what He meant to him “Why do you talk so much about Jesus?” asked a friend The old chief did not reply, but slowly, deliberately gathered some sticks and bits of grass He made a circle of them In the circle he placed a caterpillar Still silent, he struck a match and lit the sticks and grass They watched the caterpillar As the fire caught around the circle, the trapped caterpillar began to crawl around rapidly, seeking a way to escape.
As the fire advanced, the helpless caterpillar raised its head as high as it could If the creature could have spoken, it would have said, “My help can only come from above.”
Then the old chief stooped down He extended his finger to the caterpillar which crawled up his finger to safety “That,” said the chief glowing, “was what the Lord Jesus did for me! I was lost in sin My condition was hopeless I was trapped Then the Lord Jesus stooped down in love and mercy and He drew me out of the horrible pit of sin and shame How can I help but love Him and talk of His wondrous love and care?”
