John Bradshaw - He Cut Off His Fingers
Sir Ranulph Fiennes has been called the greatest living explorer in the world. In his 60's, he summited Mount Everest, at 59 he ran seven marathons in seven days on seven continents, the first just a few months after bypass surgery.
After returning home to England, following an attempt to walk unsupported to the North Pole, he felt he couldn't wait to have the ends of a severely frostbitten fingers amputated. He was told it would be several months before the surgery could be carried out, but the pain was so great that he bought a small electric saw and did the job himself.
Jesus said, "If your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you." Matthew 5:30. Those fingers were causing him unbearable pain so he took care of the situation. Sin will cause you unbearable grief, it's better just to cut it off. I'm John Bradshaw for It Is Written.
