Mr. Books

You just read the bible and heard the Gospel message. In your mind you are saying this is just a fairy tale. Like Little Red Riding Hood or Pinocchio. You put it back on the shelf next to all the other books of religion. You say in your heart this cannot be true. You sit down and come face to face with reality. You are dying what good is science for you now. If they invent a serum that can keep you alive longer it's no good to you now. You have enjoyed every moment in this life and lived for yourself. You have had marriages, children, grandchildren, new house, new cars, and so much fun. But now you sit now with memories too wonderful to dwell in, lest it bring you misery. What was the purpose of this life? You lived it to the fullest and you have nothing to take with you! What a meaningless life you lived. Now you’re left with scars of people you miss a lot and loved ones that are now dead and buried. You don't want this life anymore, you lived for the human race and they gave nothing back but a room in a nursing home. They hope you fade away and then steal your legacy and possibly your social security number. You stand up one more time in hopes of grabbing another book of religion to read. But there are no more books, you have read them all. You feel so alone there is no more wisdom to gain and religion to dissect. You have to make a choice! Even being an atheist is a choice. You play it foolishly and flip a coin to pick a religion. If chance be God you won't believe it, the Bible won every time. Just a silly coincidence, a random verse just hit you like a bolt of lightning. It's something you read and awed about as a kid at church with your parents. 1Jn 4:10 True love is God's love for us, not our love for God. He sent his Son as the way to take away our sins. You just realized of all the religions this one is the only one that teaches God loves me. In fact He loves me so much that He gave His Life for me! Wow this Jesus character if He's real must be some kind of God man. At this point the only God that will take me as I am is Jesus! All the other ones can't save me from this loneliness and fear of death. You feel a tear coming down your check you think it's called forgiveness. You say aloud, Oh Jesus if you are real please forgive me! I have nothing to give just a wasted life! All of sudden you hear this voice in your heart say, Today you will be with me in paradise! Oh my goodness! You can't stop crying what kind of love is this, you can feel it all over you like electricity, and you feel alive! You say aloud, Thank you so much, are you real? Is this really happening? The voice says go to sleep and I will see you in the morning. I will show you things no eye has ever seen no ear has ever heard! Suddenly you felt this peace and rest all over you. You say, Thank you Jesus I will go sleep but please wake me up I'm a heavy sleeper. I don't want to miss you in the morning! The voice replied “Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.”
