A Christian Story to Make You Think

Posted by Orrin Woodward on May 4, 2008

Here is a great story to make you think.  On this Sunday afternoon, take some time to reflect on your life and what aim or purpose is driving you.  Is life about the amount of money you can make?  Is life about the amount of power you can accumulate?  Is life about the amount of recognition you can receive?  Is life about having all you desires satisfied immediately?  Or is your life about sacrificial giving of yourself to others?   Don’t give a quick answer – analyze yourself and your true motives.  What you find may change your life forever.  Enjoy the story.

 

I Chose You

 

One Sunday morning during service, a 2,000 member congregation was surprised to see two men enter, both covered from head to toe in black and carrying submachine guns. One of the men proclaimed, “Anyone willing to take a bullet for Christ remain where you are.”

 

Immediately, the choir fled, the deacons fled, and most of the congregation fled. Out of the 2,000 there only remained around 20.

 

The man who had spoken took off his hood, looked at the preacher and said “Okay Pastor, I got rid of all the hypocrites. Now you may begin your service. Have a nice day!” And the two men turned and walked out.

 

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God… and then wonder why the world is in the condition it is today.

 

Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

 

Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do not have to believe, think, say, or do anything the Bible says!

 

Funny or is it scary?

 

Funny how someone can say “I believe in God” but still follow Satan (who, by the way, also “believes” in God).

 

Funny how you can send a thousand ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

 

Funny how the lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but the public discussion of Jesus is suppressed in the school and work place.

 

Funny, isn’t it? Funny how someone can be so fired up for Christ on Sunday, but be an invisible Christian the rest of the week.

 

Are you laughing?

 

Funny how when you go to forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it to them.

 

Funny how I can be more worried about what other people think of me than what God thinks of me.

 

Are you thinking?

 

Will you share this with other people? Or not?

 

I picked you.

 

My instructions were to send this to people that I wanted God to bless and I picked you. Please pass this to people you want to bless.
