If presented with the opportunity to get a message to a large group of people, what would your message be?
If I had the opportunity to share a single message with the masses I would use that opportunity to tell them about someone who loves them, accepts them with all their faults adn shortcomings, has only their best interests at heart, wants to get to knwo them and would like to save them.
He has sacrificed for us, suffered for us and He still loves us, guides us and hopes to have us open the door for Him. He is our Father, our Saviour, our Friend and our God!
To some the Bible might seem like a fairy tale, some elaborate scheme or fiction told by very old men. And yes I won't deny that it is at times hard to believe in someone I have never met, to trust something I have never seen but when looking back on my life I know for a certainty that I have not been alone, not even in my most dark moment. My life is a testament to what I believe to be true, I am who I am because I have a set of footprints right next to mine, always!
Take a chance, start with Go Eat PopCorn* and see where it takes you, you might just be pleasantly surprised at what you read. If you read that and then maybe even the Gospels* and you still don't feel a tug then at least you can say you tried. But without trying; who are you to judge those who do believe? Who are you to say you don't believe when you dont' event know what you claim not to believe in?
Don't judge a good book by its cover (or name for that matter)! Risk being proved wrong and you just might find some peace.
* Go Eat PopCorn = Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians & Colossians
* Gospels = Matthew, Mark, Luke & John
