Sunday Spiritual

The Lord works in wondrous ways... 


Heart Surgery

"Tomorrow morning," the surgeon began, "I'll open up your
heart..."

"You'll find Jesus there," the boy interrupted.. 

the surgeon looked up, annoyed "I'll cut your heart
open," he continued, to see how much damage has been
done..."

"but when you open up my heart, you'll find Jesus in
there," said the boy.

The surgeon looked to the parents, who Sat quietly. "When
I see how much damage has been done, I'll sew
your heart and chest back up, and I'll plan what to do next."

"But you'll find Jesus in my heart. The Bible says He
lives there. The hymns all say He lives there. You'll
find Him in my heart."

The surgeon had had enough. "I'll tell you what I'll find in your
heart. I'll find damaged muscle, low blood supply, and  weakened vessels. And I'll find out if I can make you well."

"You'll find Jesus there too. He lives there."

The surgeon left.

The surgeon sat in his office, recording his notes from the
surgery, "....damaged aorta, damaged pulmonary vein, widespread muscle degeneration. No hope for transplant, no hope for cure. 
Therapy: painkillers and bed rest. 
Prognosis: here he paused, "death within one year."

He stopped the recorder, but there was more to be said. "Why?" he asked aloud.
"Why did You do this? You've put him here; 
You've put him in this pain;
and You've cursed him to an
early death.
Why?"

The Lord answered and said, 
"The boy, my lamb, was not meant for your flock
for long, for he is a part of My flock, and will forever be.
Here, in My flock, he will feel no pain, and will be comforted as
you cannot imagine.

His parents will one day join him here,
and they will know peace, and
My flock will continue to grow.."

The surgeon's tears were hot, but his
anger was hotter. "You created that
boy, and You created that heart.
He'll be dead in months. Why?"

The Lord answered, "The boy, My lamb, shall
return to My flock, for He has done his duty:
I did not put My lamb with your flock to lose
him, but to retrieve another lost lamb."
 
The surgeon wept... The surgeon sat
beside the boy's bed; the boy's
parents sat across from him. 

The boy awoke and whispered, "Did you cut
open my heart?"

"Yes," said the surgeon.

"What did you find?" asked the boy.

"I found Jesus there," said the surgeon.

Jesus said, "If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed
of you before my Father."
 
I Am Not Ashamed. Pass
this on only if you mean it. "Yes, I do Love God. He is my source of existence and Savior. He keeps me functioning each and everyday. 

Without Him, I will be nothing. Without him, I am nothing, but with Him I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me." (Phil 4:13)

This is the simplest test. 
If you Love God, 
and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things 
He has done for you.
