The Wish

Excitement coursed through the village. The Kings Son, was present and had been authorized by His Father to grant everyone one wish. The streets were crammed as people lined up to make their requests.Joyous singing of praise pierced the air. This was a day of celebration and worship indeed.

First in line was the towns’ magistrate. As he boldly swaggered towards the throne, he glanced left and right to make sure that all eyes were upon him. “Silence” he commanded, as he held up his hand. With grandiose he bowed before the Prince. “Your Father has blessed me abundantly indeed”, he spoke to the Prince. “He has provided for me in each and every way, leaving no room for lack in my life. I pray Ye, that He continues to pour His Blessings upon me, withholding not His Hand for all my natural days so that I may glorify His name”.

Many requests followed. Promises were made if only their wish was granted. People asked for prosperity, financial security, healings, marriages to be saved and numerous other requests. The Prince would acknowledge each and every with the single word “granted”. Yet, despite the joys and praises sung to Him and His Father, sadness haunted His eyes.

Last came forth a dirty, ill, penniless beggar. Some attempted to dissuade him from bothering the Prince. After all, he was nobody, nothing and unfit to ask a favor of His Holiness. Adoration and love blazed from his tear streaked eyes as he approached the throne. He fell on his knees in front of His Lord and cried “Lord, I have only one wish-a request for the end of the problems of the world. Today, please let all mankind come to know and serve only You”.

How many times do we have to get on our knees, before we get it? "Please Lord put it into all the hearts of mankind to learn to Love and serve you only. Then there will be no more suffering and death" But that is what will be in Your Kingdom to come and God's children will get to see this. I guess we have to be patient a little longer, so that the gift of free will is not taken. You want bondservants and not slaves.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah... hallelujah to the Prince of Peace! Hallelujah! I just can't contain the "hallelujah" praise... You've so blessed me, Kathleen! And it must be such a blessing to our "Prince" that you've blessed all us "little people" by exposing this simple truth about TRUE servanthood. Funny... just voicing that has me in tears of thanksgiving. He is such a good, good, merciful and kind Savior.
