Recently someone posted something on their blog which caused me to reflect on my dad’s legacy…here is how I responded to their post on ‘doorknocking’
My dad started two churches that way. (doorknocking)
One up your way, which is going well.
another down at Port Kennedy, which is also going well too.
He took out ‘Boundaries’ videos, ‘Jesus’ video…whatever and lent them to people.
It was hard work.
But he has led more people to know Jesus than anyone I know, and he was NOT supernaturally gifted with evangelism.
He just worked hard, was used to rejection, and loved people.
He did not believe in shortcuts, and ever time I think of his legacy, where at his funeral a few hundred people who I never knew, but who he led to God, came along, it challenges the heck out of me.
At his best moments, he worked like Jesus.
