If You Never Felt Pain

If You Never Felt Pain

If you never felt pain, Then how would you know that I am a Healer?   If you never had to pray, How would you know that I am a Deliverer?   If you never had a trial, How could you call yourself an overcomer?   If you never felt sadness, How would you know that I am a Comforter?   If you never made a mistake, How would you know that I am a forgiver?   If you knew all, How would you know that I will answer your questions?   If you never were in trouble, How would you know that I will come to your rescue?   If you never were broken, Then how would you know that I can make you whole?   If you never had a problem, How would you know that I can solve them?   If you never had any suffering, Then how would you know what I went through?   If you never went through the fire, Then how would you become pure?   If I gave you all things, How would you appreciate them?   If I never corrected you, How would you know that I love you?   If you had all power, Then how would you learn to depend on me?   If your life was perfect, Then

God vs. Science

God vs. Science

‘Let me explain the problem science has with God.’ The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand. ‘You’re a Christian, aren’t you, son?’ ‘Yes sir, ‘the student says. ‘So you believe in God?’ ‘Absolutely.’ ‘Is God good?’ ‘Sure! God’s good.’ ‘Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?’ ‘Yes’ ‘Are you good or evil?’ ‘The Bible says I’m evil.’ The professor grins knowingly. ‘Aha! The Bible!’ He considers for a moment. ‘Here’s one for you. Let’s say there’s a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?’ ‘Yes sir, I would.’ ‘So you’re good!’ ‘I wouldn’t say that.’ ‘But why not say that? You’d help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn’t.’ The student does not answer, so the professor continues. ‘He doesn’t, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Can you answer that one?’ The student remains silent. ‘No, you can’t, can you?’ the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax. ‘Let’s start again,

My Attorney

My Attorney

After living what I felt was a “decent” life, my time on earth came to the end. The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a courthouse. The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defence table. As I looked around I saw the “prosecutor.” He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me. He definitely was the evilest person I have ever seen. I sat down and looked to my left and there sat My Attorney, a kind and gentle looking man whose appearance seemed so familiar to me, I felt I knew Him. The corner door flew open and there appeared the Judge in full flowing robes. He commanded an awesome presence as He moved across the room. I couldn’t take my eyes off Him. As He took His seat behind the bench, He said, “Let us begin.” The prosecutor rose and said, “My name is Satan and I am here to show you why this man belongs in hell.” He proceeded to tell of lies I told, things I stole, and in the past when I cheated others. Satan told of other horrible perversions once in my life and the more he spoke,

Tax Assessor

Tax Assessor

A tax assessor came one day to a poor pastor to determine the amount of taxes the pastor would have to pay. The following conversation took place: “What property do you possess?” asked the assessor. “I am a very wealthy man,” replied the minister. “List your possessions, please,” the assessor instructed. “First, I have everlasting life (John 3:16). “Second, I have a mansion in heaven (John 14:2). “Third, I have peace that passeth understanding (Philippians 4:7). “Fourth, I have joy unspeakable (1 Peter 1:8). “Fifth, I have divine love which never faileth (1 Corinthians 13:8). “Sixth, I have a faithful precious wife (Proverbs 31:10). “Seventh, I have healthy, happy obedient children (Exodus 20:12). “Eighth, I have true, loyal friends (Proverbs 18:24). “Ninth, I have songs in the night (Psalms 42:8). “Tenth, I have a crown of life (James 1:12).” The tax assessor closed his book, and said, “Truly you are a very rich man, but your wealth is not subject to taxation. –Author Unknown Meditation: But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’ “So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” – Luke 12:20-21 You will succeed in Jesus Name!

The Quilt

The Quilt

As I faced my Maker at the last judgment, I knelt before the Lord along with all the other souls. Before each of us laid our lives like the squares of a quilt in many piles. An Angel sat before each of us sewing our quilt squares together into a tapestry that is our life. But as my angel took each piece of cloth off the pile, I noticed how ragged and empty each of my squares was. They were filled with giant holes. Each square was labelled with a part of my life that had been difficult, the challenges and temptations I was faced with in everyday life. I saw the hardships that I endured, which were the largest holes of all. I glanced around me. Nobody else had such squares. Other than a tiny hole here and there, the other tapestries were filled with rich colour and the bright hues of worldly fortune. I gazed upon my own life and was disheartened. My angel was sewing the ragged pieces of cloth together, threadbare and empty, like binding air. Finally, the time came when each life was to be displayed, held up to the light, the scrutiny of truth. The others rose, each in turn, holding up their tapestries. So filled their lives had been. My angel looked at
