A Brick in the Wall


Samuel Brengle was a worker with the Salvation Army in Boston many years ago. As he passed by a saloon, some men threw a brick at his head. Their aim was good, and Brengle nearly died. As it was, he spent eighteen months in recovery. During that time he wrote a little book entitled Helps to Holiness. Thousands of copies were published.

After he was able to begin preaching again, people would often thank him for the book. He would respond by saying, “If there had been no little brick, there had been no little book.” His wife saved the brick and had Genesis 50:20 engraved on it:

But as for you, ye thought evil against; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.”

Crosspoint, we serve a God who is working within our church in order to ultimately do something very good. Keep the faith!
