“Any razor blades today?" inquired a door-to-door salesman as he entered a car repair shop in Toronto and addressed a young Christian welder, busy with his torch and tools.
“No thank you," replied the welder without raising his head or scarcely noticing the stranger.
The salesman lingered, but instead of pressing the sale, he started to sing softly the well known gospel song: "Jesus did it all, All to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed me white as snow.”
Lifting his torch and pushing his dark safety goggles from his eyes, the welder gazed at the singer, whom he immediately discerned to be a young Jew.
“Do you know the meaning of what you are singing?" he demanded.
“Yes, I do.”
“But do you know the real meaning of those words?”
“Yes, I do.”
“But you are a Jew.”
“Paul was a Jew. Paul's Savior was Jesus. And Jesus is my Savior too," replied the young salesman.
Here was a clear confession of faith in the Lord Jesus, by one of that nation of whom the Apostle John wrote: "He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." John 1:11,12.
On his becoming a Christian, Morris Brook-stone (for this was his name) was cast out by his family and friends in New York and came to Toronto to earn a living and witness for Christ.
His father died some years after his departure and in his will bequeathed Morris two hundred dollars. This he determined to put towards renting a room and buying chairs that he might preach Christ to "his brethren after the flesh" and testify to them of Jesus, who, according to his confession, was Paul's Savior and his Savior too.
