28 – Truth

After 2 weeks of talking on the phone and internet, Mike and Suzanne met for the first time at a coffee shop.

“Hey, Suzanne!” Mike said. “Over here.”

“Hey Mike,” Suzanne said. “It’s great to finally meet you in person.”

They both bought a coffee and settled down to talk. They started with their jobs, then moved on to their families and hobbies. Finally, they got to talking about their faith. They discovered that they were both Christians.

“So you’re a Christian, too,” Mike said. “That’s awesome!”

“Yeah,” Suzanne said. “What denomination are you?”

“I’m a Baptist,” Mike said. “What about you?”

“I’m an Episcopalian,” Suzanne said.

“Cool. I definitely love God, but I think He’s angry at me because of my sins,” Mike said.

“That doesn’t sound like the God I know,” Suzanne said. “God is love. He loves us unconditionally. He will always build us up, not pull us down. He is faithful to forgive our sins if we ask. You should go to Him in prayer and ask Him to reveal His true self to you.”

“Okay,” Mike said. “That’s a good idea. Thanks for your insight.”

Mike and Suzanne finished chatting and went their separate ways, with plans to do it again soon.

When Mike got home, he started to pray and ask God to reveal His true self to him. As he prayed, Mike began to feel God’s love surrounding him. He realized that God was not angry at him, but that He loved him unconditionally. Mike felt a sense of peace and forgiveness that he had never felt before.

Mike met with Suzanne again and thanked her for helping him to see the truth. Eventually, Mike and Suzanne started dating and fell in love. After a year or so, they got married.

Mike and Suzanne lived a happy and fulfilling life together. They were always grateful for the day they met and for the role that each of them played in helping the other to grow in their faith.

“For I will set My eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land; I will build them and not pull them down, and I will plant them and not pluck them up.

Jeremiah 24:6

“I will give you power to know the vastness of my immeasurable love.”

Ephesians 3:17-19
