One day, a man went to visit a church. He arrived early, parked
his car, and got out. Another car pulled up near him, and the driver told him, "I always park there. You took my place!" |
The visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat, and sat down. A young lady from the church approached him and stated, "That's my seat! You took my place!" The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but said nothing.
After Sunday School, the visitor went into the church sanctuary and sat down. Another member walked up to him and said, "That's where I always sit. You took my place!" The visitor was even more troubled by this treatment, but still said nothing.
Later, as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them, the visitor stood, and his appearance began to change. Horrible scars became visible on his hands and on his sandaled feet. Someone from the congregation noticed him and cried out, "What happened to you?"
The visitor replied, "I took your place."
If you have understood that Jesus died in your place and have already received His gift of eternal life, Praise the Lord!! -- If not, why not receive Him right now? ---
We encourage you to refer to the LIFEQUEST "Food for Thought" topics of Salvation and Gospel which will further explain what He has done for you, how much God loves you and show you how to receive Jesus as your Savior and Lord.
God bless you and have a great day!
