As Alan Robertson put it, “Duck Dynasty strikes again!”
At the invitation this morning Alan, (the oldest son of the Robertson family), told the congregation about a family from Georgia that had driven 12 hours to visit the White’s Ferry Road Church. Influenced by watching the hit Duck Dynasty TV show, one of the sons had decided to turn himself in.
Alan explained that after visiting with the young man and carefully explaining the good news about Jesus this fine young teenager wanted to be baptized. He made a public declaration of his faith in Jesus and soon Alan baptized him, where he reenacted the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
Here at Grace Digest I have received many, many comments about how a funny TV show about a family who loves God, each other, and the outdoors, has in one way or another impacted their lives. It is so rare to see a functional family on TV that the Robertson clan is extremely rare in the world of entertainment. I join the chorus of millions who heartily approve of the antics of some good old boys and glimpses into the family lives of genuine followers of Jesus.
Christians can hunt and fish, play practical jokes on each other, work hard and play hard, and keep Jesus first in everything. Nothing lasts forever and most things not even a long time, but I hope Duck Dynasty is on my TV for a very long time. God is using the Duck Commander crew to make a difference in the lives of many people for both time and eternity! I am honored to call them my friends and forever family.
