Rev. E. Anderson
TRUE CONVERSION

Paul’s testimony is repeated over and over again as persons respond in faith of Christ, as they are given His Spirit and become new creations. I heard of such a miracle recently.

The American Red Cross was gathering supplies, medicine, clothing, food and the like for the suffering Biafra. Inside one of the boxes that showed up at the collecting depot one day was a letter. It said, “We have recently been converted and because of our conversion we want to try to help. We won’t ever need these again. Can you use them for something?” Inside the box were several Ku Klux Klan sheets. The sheets were cut down to strips and eventually used to bandage the wounds of black persons in Africa.

It could hardly be more dramatic—from symbols of hatred to bandages of the new creation. Nothing else matters, says Paul.
