A newly-hired salesman stunned his supervisors with his first report, for it revealed that he was almost illiterate. He wrote: “I seen this outfit who aint never got a dimes worth of nuthin from us an sole dem sum goods.” But before he could be fired, a second letter arrived. It read: “I came to Chicawgo an sole dem haff a millyon.”

The sales manager dumped the problem into the president’s lap. The next day the staff was amazed to see the salesman’s letters on the bulletin board, with this memo: “We ben spendin two much time tryin to spel good insted a tryin to sell. I want everbody should read these letters from Gooch, who is doin a grate job, and you should go out and do like he done!”

Could it be that we Christians are spending too much time trying to get our theology correct and not enough time selling Jesus to people? He is the only solution.

Paul said it like this: “My speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power” (1 Corinthians 2:4). Let’s live like Jesus and others might be interested in Him.
