The pastor of a megachurch in the US has recently shared the testimony of a man who became a Christian after finding a Bible he lost nearly 15 years ago.
Paul Daugherty, lead pastor of Victory Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, took to social media to share the story.
He wrote: “Meet Clayton— he found this old Bible at a shelter 10 years ago and started reading it, and saw the name P. DAUGHERTY on the front cover not knowing who that was but seeing all kind of little journal notes, and underlines and scribble thoughts next to scripture verses from the Old Testament to the New Testament…”
Pastor Paul explained how Clayton “treasured those little scribbled thoughts and notes” over the years until he came to Christ recently and attended one of his Sunday services to ask if the Bible belonged to him.
“He came to church tonight and showed me the Bible and asked if I knew who’s it was!!? it was my old Bible from middle & high school that I lost and hadn’t seen in 15 years!!!
“God used my old messy scribbles in the Bible to save this guy’s life who now is saved, set free, and brought his whole family with kids to church tonight!!!! The WORD IS ALIVE AND POWERFUL!!!,” Pastor Paul concluded.
More than 14,000 people have liked Pastor Paul’s post which included a picture of him and Clayton holding the large worn-out Bible.
