An elderly woman had just returned to her home from church. She truly felt the presence of the Holy Spirit around her as she entered the front door of her home.
Upon entering the house, she was immediately startled by an intruder. As she caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables, she yelled, “Stop mister! Acts 2:38!”
The burglar stopped in his tracks and stood motionless with his back to her as she calmly called the police and told them she had a burglar in her house who was willing to turn himself in.
As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar,
“Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you.”
“Scripture!” replied the burglar. “I swear I heard her say she had an Ax and Two 38’s!
Knowing scripture can save your life in more ways than one!
