"And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me" Matthew 25:40
The weekend rolled around and it was time to change the dressing on Cecil's back. When I got there he had an entire Ace bandage rolled up and he poured a solution over it and handed it to me dripping on the carpet and said, "stick it in the hole!" I did and in a few weeks, the wound begins to heal and completely closed up. Praise God!
We began to take Cecil to church with us and my Pastor, David and I hung out with him and ministered to him and he eventually gave his heart to Jesus! We bought him a suit and he went to work and God blessed him and had favor on his life. One Sunday we had a picnic out at the lake with my home group and David's church and we were baptizing those who had been saved and Cecil was one of them. After I baptized him, as he was walking out of the water he cut is leg on a rock and because of a wound he suffered in Vietnam he didn't have much flesh on his calf and it got infected and turned into blood poisoning.
We prayed and he went to the doctor and they gave him some strong antibiotics and told him he could lose his leg. Cecil went back in two weeks and the doctor looked at it and said those antibiotics really worked, your leg has healed! Cecil told him, "I never took them I trusted God and He healed me!" Glory! Cecil was a real trophy of God's grace but eventually, he died of natural causes, and David and I did a service for him and praised God for His faithfulness in his life!
"And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." Matthew 25:46
