Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Do you remember Shamgar, from the Bible? I think there may be only two verses about Shamgar, but Judges chapter 3 says he singlehandedly struck down 600 Philistines with an ox goad. Not a sword, not a spear, not an AK-47, but an ox goad; that is, the jawbone of an ox … basically, a big stick. This man alone beat down 600 soldiers with a stick, saving Israel—an entire nation! Unbelievable! And it’s a great lesson in God's ability to do incredible—almost unbelievable things—through just one believer. You know, there are one billion people with disabilities out there, in need of Christ’s salvation. And you—yes you—can be of help. So visit joniandfriends.org to learn how you can bring the hope of Jesus to those many, many lives. Be a Shamgar, because regardless of your limitations or the challenge, God will do great things through you.
