God's love...

This story is dedicated to all the angels out there. You are the unsung heros. One may not know it, things we do some times can make an impact to another person's life.

Every Sunday afternoon, after the morning service at the church, the
Pastor and his eleven year old son would go out into their town and
hand out Gospel Tracts.

This particular Sunday afternoon, as it came time for the Pastor and
his son to go to the streets with their tracts, it was very cold
outside, as well as pouring down rain. The boy bundled up in his
warmest and driest clothes and said, "OK, dad, I'm ready."

His Pastor dad asked, "Ready for what?"

"Dad, it's time we gather our tracts together and go out." Dad
responds, "Son, it's very cold outside and it's pouring down rain."

The boy gives his dad a surprised look, asking, "But Dad, aren't
people still going to Hell, even though it's raining?"

Dad answers, "Son, I am not going out in this weather."
Despondently, the boy asks, "Dad, can I go? Please?"

His father hesitated for a moment then said, "Son, you can go.
Here are the tracts, be careful son.."

"Thanks Dad!"

And with that, he was off and out into the rain. his eleven year old
boy walked the streets of the town going door to door and handing
everybody he met in the street a Gospel Tract.

After two hours of walking in the rain, he was soaking, bone-chilled
wet and down to his VERY LAST TRACT. He stopped on a corner and
looked for someone to hand a tract to, but the streets were
totally deserted.

Then he turned toward the first home he saw and started up the
sidewalk to the front door and rang the door bell. He rang the bell,
but nobody answered. He rang it again and again, but still no one
answered. He waited but still no answer.

Finally, this eleven year old trooper turned to leave, but something
stopped him. Again, he turned to the door and rang the bell and
knocked loudly on the door with his fist. He waited, something
holding him there on the front porch! He rang again and this time
the door slowly opened. Standing in the doorway was a very sad-
looking elderly lady. She softly asked, "What can I do for you,
son?" With radiant eyes and a smile that lit up her world, this
little boy said, "Ma'am, I'm sorry if I disturbed you, but I just
want to tell you that *JESUS REALLY DOES LOVE YOU* and I came to
give you my very last Gospel Tract which will tell you all about
JESUS and His great LOVE."

With that, he handed her his last tract and turned to leave. She
called to him as he departed. "Thank you, son! And God Bless You!"

Well, the following Sunday morning in church Pastor Dad was in the
pulpit. As the service began, he asked, "Does anybody have any
testimony or want to say anything?"

Slowly, in the back row of the church, an elderly lady stood to her
feet. As she began to speak, a look of glorious radiance came from
her face, "No one in this church knows me. I've never been here
before. You see, before last Sunday I was not a Christian. My
husband passed on some time ago, leaving me totally alone in this
world. Last Sunday, being a particularly cold and rainy day, it was
even more so in my heart that I came to the end of the line where I
no longer had any hope or will to live.

So I took a rope and a chair and ascended the stairway into
the attic of my home. I fastened the rope securely to a rafter in
the roof, then stood on the chair and fastened the other end of the
rope around my neck. Standing on that chair, so lonely and
brokenhearted I was about to leap off, when suddenly the loud
ringing of my doorbell downstairs startled me. I thought,
"I'll wait a minute, and whoever it is will go away." I waited and
waited, but the ringing doorbell seemed to get louder and more
insistent, and then the person ringing also started knocking loudly.
I thought to myself again, "Who on earth could this be? Nobody ever
rings my bell or comes to see me." I loosened the rope from my neck
and started for the front door, all the while the bell rang louder
and louder.

When I opened the door and looked I could hardly believe my eyes,
for there on my front porch was the most radiant and
angelic little boy I had ever seen in my life. His SMILE, oh, I
could never describe it to you! The words that came from his mouth
caused my heart that had long been dead, TO LEAP TO LIFE as he
exclaimed with a cherub-like voice, "Ma'am, I just came to tell you
that JESUS REALLY DOES LOVE YOU." Then he gave me this
Gospel Tract that I now hold in my hand.

As the little angel disappeared back out into the cold and rain, I
closed my door and read slowly every word of this Gospel Tract. Then
I went up to my attic to get my rope and chair. I wouldn't be
needing them any more.

You see---I am now a Happy Child of the KING. Since the address of
your church was on the back of this Gospel Tract, I have come here
to personally say THANK YOU to God's little angel who came just in
the nick of time and by so doing, spared my soul from an eternity in
hell."

There was not a dry eye in the church. And as shouts of praise and
honor to THE KING resounded off the very rafters of the building,
Pastor Dad descended from the pulpit to the front pew where the
little angel was seated.

He took his son in his arms and sobbed uncontrollably. Probably no
church has had a more glorious moment, and probably this universe
has never seen a Papa that was more filled with love & honor for his
son... Except for One.

Our Father also allowed His Son to go out into a cold and dark
world. He received His Son back with joy unspeakable, and as all of
heaven shouted praises and honor to The King, the Father sat His
beloved Son on a throne far above all principality and power and
every name that is named.
