Former President Jimmy Carter is not shy about sharing his faith. He and wife Rosalynn have been on numerous faith-sharing missions in America and overseas. 

In his book “Living Faith,” Jimmy Carter recounts a humbling experience. He says that when he was preparing to run for governor a second time, he was invited to speak to a Christian men’s group about his activities as a Christian witness. 

In preparation for that talk, he took account of the witnessing he had done. He added up the times when he had shared the faith with other people, one on one, and they had made commitments to Christ. The total number came to 140. 

But then, said Carter, “The Lord must have been looking over my shoulder because immediately I remembered my 1966 political campaign when Rosalynn and I had traveled the state and had shaken hands with 300,000 Georgians, extolling my good points, and asking them to vote for me. 

I had asked 300,000 people to support me, but only 140 people to affirm Jesus. The terrible difference in those numbers brought me to my knees.”
