He Did What He Couldn’t

Ten days ago Brother Andrew died at the age of 94. This was the man who first took the Bible behind the Iron Curtain. Since the 1950’s this work has expanded and is now called Open Doors. Persecuted Christians in about 70 different countries receive Bibles, Christian literature and humanitarian aid.

As Brother Andrew became older he was often asked what he would like to be written on his grave stone. One of his ideas was ‘He did what he couldn’t,’ (a play on the phrase (‘He did what he could.)) In his version the first ‘He’ applied to God and the second ‘he’ to himself.

There is no limit to what God can do. This phrase could also apply to anyone willing to let God have control of their lives.
