In a far off village in India
The skies have turned dark and the atmosphere was motionless similar to three bodies lying at the Village square.
Amidst all commotion stood a man of confidence and submission.
The voice of the chief broke the silence,’You have one final chance to save yourself from my sword, deny Christ and save yourself’
The man lifted his eyes from the blood of his wife and two daughters which were lapping at his feet and with a smile answered
“I have decided to follow Jesus ,No turning back No turning back”
She was his world!
She smiled – He smiled.
She cried – He cried.
Existence was tough without her,yet he found it hard to say “I love you”.
Maybe that’s why he decided to show it to her by pouring out his blood on the cross.
He carried the weight of the cross
He carried people’s sin
(Few hrs later)
The cross carried his weight
People walked away
He wanted to walk on the waves of doubts and troubles he had.
“Here ,hold my hand”, Jesus said.
He left his sinking boat to walk on the water.
She laid face down after missing a catch during the last set of their international throw ball match.
“Miracle is still a reality”, Someone shouted from behind
She stood back on her feet ,made her team win.
She looked back to find her father smiling at her.
He saw an old book lying on top of his shelf as he was tying the rope to the ceiling fan.
The front cover read ,”Bible”.
A book opened .
A life saved.
In his world of hate, he heard someone call out to him with love love.
“Yes lord here I am”,he replied.
(All the cattles gathered at the temple grounds hearing to loud voices of praise and calls of hosanna…To witness something weird. The people were going nuts over a donkey )
Ox : why is my master celebrating the coming of a donkey?
Bull: He is so weak ,look at his shoulders he clearly haven’t carried anything heavy before. People must be crazy welcoming him like that!
Horse: All this noise for a colt! What’s happening?
(The donkey replied hearing to their complaints)
Donkey: Don’t look at me ,look at the one who is riding me!
(And immediately all their questions were answered)
“why did you die for me?,why did you save me?I am not worthy..I am a sinner”,he said.
“I dint die for your sins, I died so you could see the goodness in you through me”, God replied.
“Triangles are the strongest shape because it can bear any added forces.“
(His maths teacher kept repeating.)
“It’s the cross”, he whispered.
