Letter to a girl who might run away again

Sunday, July 24, 2011, about 11 pm

Dear _______,

I would like you to think about _____ and about our Lord Jesus. You and I have been taught since we were small that Jesus came into this world and suffered and died for the good of our souls, and did it all out of love for us. I would like to remind you what He suffered and how much He suffered.

After His agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus was arrested, taken before Caiaphas and in the morning, brought before Pilate, who had Him scourged by Roman soldiers, who showed no mercy at all. A Roman scourging could lay the flesh open to the bone.

Would ______ endure as much for you?

Then he was led under heavy guard to the hill of Calvary, where they crucified him. He took three hours to die, in unbelievable agony.

You might never have seen a Crucifix, a cross with Jesus on it. Here are some for you to look at and think about.

Would ______ endure as much for you?

Best wishes, blessings, and prayers from Bob
