Topic: SALVATION

Searching for an easily understandable way of teaching his children about salvation, Jim decided to call his children to the bottom of the staircase. Standing at the top of the stairs he said, "I’m Jesus in heaven and I want you here with me, but you cannot climb up the stairs or use the handrail." After initial puzzlement his 12-year-old said, "Okay, Dad, I’ll play. Come down here." Jim came down. The boy asked him to turn around, climbed on his back, and asked his father to carry him up the stairs. After each of the four children had been carried up the stairs, their father discussed with them the indelible lesson - how salvation comes not from self-effort, but from what Christ does for us. For educational purposes…Power For Living - June 25, 2000

**********************

Jesus and Satan were battling it out over who was better on his computer. God said, "Cool it. I am going to set up a test that will run two hours and I will judge who does the better job."

So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away. They moused. They did spreadsheets. They wrote reports. They sent faxes. They sent e-mail. They sent out e-mail with attachments. They downloaded. They did some genealogy reports. They made cards. They did every known job. But ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, the rain poured, and of course, the electricity went off.

Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld. Jesus just sighed.

The electricity finally flickered back on, and each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically screaming "It’s gone! It’s all
gone! I lost everything when the power went out!"

Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours. Satan observed this and became irate. "Wait! He cheated! How did he
do it?"

God shrugged and said, "Jesus saves."
