Dying to self, in the nick of time

“I was not expecting this while I was alive,” a 97 year-old man said, when he heard someone reading the Bwisi Scriptures. “Now I have learned the true meaning of salvation, and have accepted Jesus as my Savior. I will die in the Lord. They used to tell us that a Christian is someone who attends church all the time, gives gifts, does good works and prays every evening. But now, through these teachings in my language, I understand that God forgives our sins through Christ!”

The photo is not of the man in the story, but he is from Uganda from where the story takes place.
