Finding Jesus

A drunk stumbled across a baptismal service on Sunday afternoon down by the river, and he proceeded to walk down into the water where he stood next to the Preacher.

As the minister turned and noticed the old drunk, he said, "Mister, Are you ready to find Jesus?"

The drunk looked back and said, "Yessh, Preacher ... I sure am."

The minister then dunked the fellow under the water and pulled him right back up. "Have you found Jesus?" the preacher asked.

"Nooo, I haven't!" said the drunk.

The preacher then dunked him under for quite a bit longer, brought him up and said, "Now, brother, have you found Jesus?"

"Noooo, I have not, Reverend."

The preacher, in disgust, held the man under for at least 30 seconds this time, brought him out of the water, and said in a harsh tone, "My God, man, have you found Jesus yet?"

The old drunk wiped his eyes and said to the preacher ... "Nooooo!!! I don't see him, but are you sure this is where he fell in?"
