Only the shadow of death can run over us…

Donald Grey Barnhouse, on the way home from the funeral of his first wife, was trying to think of some way of comforting his children. Just then a huge moving van passed by their car and its shadow swept over them. Instantly, Barnhouse asked, “Children, would you rather be run over by a truck or by its shadow?” The children replied, “Of course we’d prefer the shadow!”

To which Barnhouse replied, “Two thousand years ago the truck of death ran over the Lord Jesus … now only the shadow of death can run over us!”
