What if God decided to place a want ad? How do you think it would read? I have a feeling it would go something like this:
One LG (loving God) seeks intimacy and fellowship with AFF (A faithful friend). This special person must be a loving companion, one who enjoys long strolls on a forgotten beach, light hearted laughter over silly things, a deep, abiding affection for those who are hurting, and a burning desire to proclaim the good news to a lost and dying world.
Most importantly, this special someone must be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and have a willingness to unselfishly lay down their life for their fellowman. For in doing these things, there is no greater love.
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
This LG (loving God) is looking for a long term relationship with a VSB (very strong believer). One who loves sharing the gospel and doesn’t mind getting caught in the rain while witnessing to a hurting generation.
A must requirement is that this person have a THFI (tender heart for intercession) an ability to forgive easily, and a “will” that is forged in steel, fixed and immovable. Anyone less then committed or in a backslidden state… need not apply.
If you think you’re the one for me, give me a call. It’s best to reach me in the early mornings. You more than likely already have my number, if not, leave a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you…ASAAP! (Assuredly Sending An Answered Prayer!).
