When I was a child, I was a bully.
I was happy when I see someone cry.
And then I saw a man.
He was staring straight at me.
I also stared at Him.
I asked,
“Who are You?”
He looked to me and said,
“I am your Lord, I love you and I want you to be with Me in Heaven.”

I began to grow old.
I went to school.
I always cheat and lie.
And then I saw a man.
He was staring straight at me.
I asked,
“Why are You always here? I’m so bad and I don’t need You. Who are You?”
He looked and said,
“I am your Lord. I died on the cross because of you and I want you to be with Me in Heaven.”

I didn’t believe what the man said.

I grew older.
I finished my studies.
I had the job that I want.
I still cheat and lie.
And then I saw the man who said He is a Lord.
I stared at Him.
I asked,
“Do you still love me even if I cheat and lie to others? I am a sinner and I don’t deserve to be with You.”
He looked and said,
“If you only believe and confess, you will realize that I still love you. I want you to be with Me in Heaven.”

Time went by.
I started to build my own family.
But it didn’t work out.
And then I saw the man who said He is a Lord.
I stared at Him.
I asked,
“You said you are Lord, You said that You love me but what did You do to me? My life became miserable.”
He looked to me and said,
“You are suffering for the consequences that you have made. You are suffering because you do not believe that I love you and I want you to be with Me in Heaven.”

I grew much older.
My body became weak.
I was pale.
I knew that my life would end soon.
But there is something missing that I want to find.
I saw the Lord standing in front of me.
I remembered all the things that I did. I was so naive to understand that every time I do something, He was always there for me. Even if I was on the peak of my triumph or on the edge of falling out, He was always there for me.
I stared at Him intently.
My eyes became wet.
He is my Lord.
He is my Savior.
He is the One I’m searching for so long even though I know that He is always there for me.
I stared at Him for the second time.
And said,
“Lord, I truly believe in You. I don’t know how could I thank You for loving me so deeply. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and came back to life to save me. I accept You now as my personal Savior.”
And I asked,
“Lord, would you forgive me for everything that I have done? I am so sorry.”
And I sobbed.
He looked to me and said,
“That is My grace My child. Even if you sin, I will still love you. Even if you never did what I want you to do, only if you confess and promise that you will turn back from your sins, I will still love you.”
He stretched his arms to me.
I saw his nail-pierced hands.
“My child, I now forgive you. From now on, you will be with me in Heaven.”

My friend, would you still wait to grow old just to realize that there is Someone who will love you more than anyone here on Earth? Don’t waste your life. Jesus loves you so much!
