Searching for the Saviour

A drunk stumbles onto a baptismal service on a Sunday afternoon down by the river. He proceeds to stagger down into the water and stands next to the minister.

The minister turns , notices the old drunk and says, "Mister, are you ready to find Jesus?"

The drunk looks back and says, "Yes, sir-l am."

The minister than dunks the drunk under the water and pulls him right back up. "Have you found Jesus?" the minister asks.

"No l haven't!" says the drunk.

The minister then dunks him under for quite a bit longer, brings him up and asks, "Now have you found Jesus?"

"No l have not!" bellows the drunk again.

Disgusted, the minister holds the drunk under for at least 30 seconds the third time, then brings him up and demands, "For the grace of God! Have you ! found Jesus yet?"

The old drunk wipes his eyes and pleads, "Are you sure this is where he fell in?"
