Agnes reads bible; and interestingly sometimes they both get into discussions.
Agnes sits with her Bible in a pleasant corridor of her room
The Bible: Welcome back Agnes; Jesus Loves you
Agnes: I am so grateful for His love
The Bible: Why is your heart troubled Agnes?
Agnes: Well, I am little bit confused that is what should I do to please God?
I have followed my friend Lucy who said it is necessary to wear certain type of dress while going to church and to college and also she told me money is not required and many things ; so I just did what she told me. But I cannot reach my other friends to tell them about the love of God because they did not like me in that way
The Bible: Then?
Agnes: Then when I met a friend of mine in the shop ,Gloria; I told her my problem she said that it is necessary to dress according to the fashion of the current world and also money is so important and living a rich life is a blessing of God. So I dressed very beautifully and concentrated more in the way that my friends would like me to be; but then they have distanced themselves more from me. How can I reach them to share about Jesus to them
The Bible: Agnes Jesus loves you as you are. But it is necessary to live a life based on the word of God. Instead of asking counsel from your friends spend your time in reading the word of God and ask the spirit of God to counsel you because He alone knows the heart of God
Agnes: You are correct but which way is correct the way of Lucy or the way of Gloria?
The Bible: Never fall into ditches my friend The way of Lucy puts you in one extreme where you neglect everything and portray yourself as a humble person and the way of Gloria is another extreme where you exalt yourself and concentrate more on yourself and spend time to adore you
Jesus has said follow me and He said I am the way
So when you follow Jesus you will be on His way but be careful not to fall in the ditches at the sides of the way
In this world you are the representatives of Jesus
People in this world has never seen Jesus but Jesus is in You so when they see you they see Jesus
Agnes: That is true
The Bible: Always remember that you cannot share about Jesus living a sinful life also more than words your life and life style speaks louder to them who are outside of Christ Jesus.
Never dress or speak in a way that could distract others or adores yourself which not only turns you away from God but makes others to live in wrong way because of you
Never exalt yourself but be humble not only before men but before God
Money is necessary but it is not God ; Honor God with your money, time and life.
Agnes: I hope I understand this now
Thank you so much my friend.
