Topic: The Game of Life (09/11/08)

TITLE: The Stadium

The noise of the crowd was deafening. Emotion filled the stadium atmosphere with excitement, as the divided crowd shouted passionately to the players below. Some offered obvious encouragement, eagerly cheering and pressing for victory. The opposing numbers were nearly hostile, seeking to distract and mislead the players, hoping to turn the outcome of the game to their side. The battle on the field was extended through the masses as every voice in the arena added to the play, hoping to lead their team to victory.

Far below the watching crowds, one lone man stood between the pews, facing the floor. He was squirming uncomfortably, fidgeting with both the bulletin and his very life. A friend had invited him to this event but now he stood here alone and listened to the preacher speak about life and death, and something called salvation. He felt as if he was caught in the middle, his life a broken mess and confusion on all sides. The promises and encouragement of the pastor were calling to him, but other voices seemed to draw to him, to keep him away.

Suddenly he made a decision. He slowly stepped out from his pew, and started for the altar. He felt a presence and a tug on his heart like never before, and he could almost hear crowds of angels cheering somewhere in another world as he went forward to accept the Lord.

I liked the corollary between the fight between sin and salvation and a sports arena.
It got slightly confusing after the first paragraph, but a second read cleared it up.
Good way to show the struggle between angels and demons!

I like the way you write the story. It's filled with emotions and struggles, describing the battle within the call to salvation. Very nicely written.

I'd love to see this expanded, it's a great vision you could really run with. Awesome analogy!

Great analogy - would love to see this expanded upon. A bit more description of what is going on, instead of just telling us, might keep this more engaging. Keep writing for His glory!
