"I went to Jerusalem to become acquainted (Gk. istoria) with Cephas" - Paul's words from Galatians 1:18.

His World Got Smaller as His God Got Bigger

There are a few occasions when I am taken by surprise with public expressions of faith in Christ by God's people. This morning was one of those occasions. Kathie Lee Gifford gave a clear testimony of the importance of receiving God's grace in the Person and work of Jesus Christ. Her words were clear and sincere. Some Christians may be bothered by the glass of wine in front of Kathie Lee as she shares of her's and her husband's love for Christ, but not me. I'd rather be around a person who exudes the joy of Jesus and drinks a glass of wine than a person who eschews a glass of wine and is devoid of the love of Jesus. Kudos, Kathie Lee, for letting your Light shine before the world - on national television no less. One of the phrases Kathie Lee used to describe the last few years of her husband's life is a phrase that will stick with me:
"His world got smaller as his God got bigger."
May that ultimately be true of all of us who name Jesus Christ as Lord of our lives. To watch the full touching tribute to Frank Gifford's faith click here:

Amen to Kathie Lee for her powerful words. May they be multiplied. Powerful to think that MILLIONS of people heard this testimony, uncensored by the network. God is good.

I was touched by her commentary, too. Hoping her testimony touched many hearts.
