He looked like a real flesh and blood person and for a moment I had forgotten it was a computer image and reached out to touch it.
Then I went back to the list of topics and clicked on I am the Truth, there stood an image of Jesus holding a dove that I took to represent the Holy Spirit. His smile was disarming and the feathers on the bird seemed so alive I thought it would fly out of the computer onto my shoulders.
I sat staring at this image for a minute, wondering what it meant. What was happening to me and why it was happening to me, maybe it was the rich barbeque sauce I had for dinner the night before or the fact that I hadn’t gotten much rest in the last 24 hours. Somehow none of these reasons seemed to ring true for me. I was completely awake, not dreaming, not in bed – as a matter of fact, I had just finished lunch when I turned on the computer.
No explanation seemed acceptable. Then I decided to investigate further by clicking on the 3rd topic in the listing, I am the Life. This led to an experience that cannot be adequately explained by mere words, one must have been there to experience it to know how I felt. On the clicking of this topic I was brought into a bright light that emanated from the screen. It projected rays of golden amber and crimson red that covered my body and created a surge of energy throughout my body.
I was shaken to the core of my being. Was this the trick of some search engine guru? Then I felt compelled to ask what its purpose was and why this was happening to me. His face turned radiant like the sun and his smile filled the entire screen with warmth that was comforting and sincere. He looked at me with pleading eyes and said I had to get your attention somehow. You busy yourself with your work which you believe you are doing for me never letting me into it. I do believe you are sincere, but remember the one who gave you the work in the first place – remember me. I promise it will go easier for you if you do.
Tears formed in my eyes as I said, Jesus I am sorry, I will remember to ask you into my work the next time. Then a peace that surpasses all understanding spread over me and I was happier than I had ever been.
Now I want to ask you, does your computer come first before Jesus?
