Scripture: ACTS 2:38

A woman finished her bible study and went into her kitchen to find a burglar loaded down with a bunch of stuff he was stealing from her. Not having any kind of weapon to scare him off, she raised her arm and extended her hand and said, “Stop —- Acts 2:38” which was all she could think of and had just been studying it.
The burglar froze in place and didn’t move. The woman called 911 —- the police arrived quickly and were amazed to find the burglar still frozen where he stopped. “What did you say to him that kept him from moving?” a policeman asked the woman. She told him, “I simply said Acts 2:38 cause that is what I had been reading.”
The police all had a good laugh and one escorted the burglar out to the patrol car. “Why did the woman’s quoting scripture scare you so much?” he asked.
“Scripture?” said the burglar, “I thought she said she had an ax and two 38’s!”
