SOUL



 There once was a man named Soul who was walking in a garden. He was
whistling a real sweet tune for he was saved and had the joy of the
Lord, but he was a baby Christian. As Soul was walking a beautiful
and seductive woman came out from behind a tree. Soul was very
startled.

He said, "Hello, I'm Soul, what is your name?"
She replied, "I am Temptation, I have what you want."
"What do I want?" replied Soul.

"You want to do all things which are of the flesh," said Temptation.
Soul replied, "O.K., LEAD me. "So he and Temptation went off and
fulfilled the desires of the flesh. When Soul returned to the garden,
he met a man named Condemnation.


 Condemnation said, "Hey, I see you have met my friend, Temptation."
Soul said, "Yes, who are you?" "I am Condemnation, I come after
Temptation, we work hand-in- hand." Then Condemnation jumped on
Soul's back and began to beat him. He hit him in the face and kicked
him when he was down.

This went on for several days. On about the third day a man named
Mercy came running and said, "I command you Condemnation to stop
beating Soul."

Condemnation snickered, "Make me." So Mercy unsheathed his sword and
cut condemnation in two. Soul watched in astonished pain, he was
overtaken by the power of Mercy. Mercy walked up to Soul and said, "I
have dealt with Condemnation before. He should not show up around you
anymore."

Soul replied, "How can I ever thank you?" "Well," replied Mercy, "I
was sent here by God and He told me to introduce you to a dear friend
of mine. His name is Redemption."


 Redemption walked up and said, "Hello Soul, I see that you are not
 doing well." Soul replied," Not until Mercy came along. It is a
 pleasure to meet you Redemption." "Well", said Redemption," I am glad
 to meet you, are you ready to accept me?" What do you mean?" asked
 Soul.

 Redemption said, "Well, when you accepted Jesus and decided to walk
with Him then you chose to accept the things of Him and His love. I
am a part of Jesus' love. I help you feel forgiven. You will never
have to deal with Condemnation again.

Temptation may come around, but I have someone I would like for you
to meet that can help you with that. His name is Grace." Grace walked
up to Soul and said, "Hello Soul, I  have been waiting for you. As a
matter of fact all three of us have been waiting to meet you. I
will help you take the way out of Temptation that God gives you
as it comes up.

The last person we want you to meet is Faith." "Hi Soul, I am Faith,
and I will help you stay strong and keep your beliefs strong," said
Faith.

Soul began to cry.

When he began to cry Redemption said, "This is what we were here
for.  Jesus redeemed you, saved you by Grace through Faith and gives
you his Mercy.  Jesus loves you Soul." Soul said, "I love you
Jesus."
