the faith of a child…

an’ there was all these people gathered ’round on a Sunday mornin’…waitin’ to see somebody take to the call…wantin’ to see the miracle of salvation in front of their own eyes..the submersion of sin…

the preacher’s words were simple…, for God gave his only son so that we may not perish…but have ever lasting life…

i wanted that ever lasting life…salvation…longed to walk the streets of gold…did not want to burn in Hell with those sinners who chose not to accept the Lord Jesus Christ into their lives…

did not want to be in the lake of fire…hear the gnashing of teeth…surrounded by burnin’ flesh for all of eternity…no sir… i did not…

so…i answered the call…the call to ever lastin’ peace at the age of 9….goodbye to all the evils commited…death to sin…and alive to Christ….

an’ i was ready to go an’ witness to others of my salvation…Christ’s sacrifice…there was no strangers that i knew…all were asked…, have you accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your life…he’s waitin’ on you to answer his call…

many scoffed at me…some said they had already made that commitment in their lives…others turned a blind eye to the kid in the park…shopping malls…fronts of grocery stores…school…they laughed at the boy who gave warning to pay heed to the word of God…all too many times…

this took it’s toll on my faith…began to question…anger stirred in the soul…ridicule…there was no semblance of God here on earth…this is a world of sin…where greed is good…lust powerful…drink strong…

so… i left it all behind on a sunday morning when i did not answer that call…when i did not seek-out salvation…i too began to laugh at the believer… returned to sin…

an’ i do not know…do not understand why this world chooses to crush the faith of a child…

but it does…it does…
