Reading.Fantasy.Reality

Happily ever after 
I love to read. I think most of you guys do too. It's amazing isn't it? The feeling of picking up a new book, opening it up, and then if it's a good book it's like you are transported to a different world. A world full of exciting characters, suspenseful plots, and very often there is a hero, and crazy things happen, and the hero almost dies like a million times but then in the end even though some sad things happened it's usually a "happily ever after" ending. Sounds great doesn't it? I actually some times wish that I was in a story world. I mean come on who wouldn't? I mean full packed action, you'd meet like awesome new friends, adventure at every corner and then usually a "happily ever after" But that's not how it is in real life is it? Most of the time there aren't any "heroes" or amazing adventures. and then of course there isn't usually a "happily ever after" Sometimes reading leads us to expect more out of life.
    But really there are heroes, there are grand adventures, and for some there are "happily ever afters"
 Sometimes I think that as Christians we have our head in the clouds when we really should have our head in the Bible. We need to wake up and realize that not everyone is going to have a "happily ever after." every one is going to die some way,some how, some time. Some of us are going to have a "happily ever after" in Heaven! But others aren't. I want everyone to have a "happily ever after" but yet not everyone is going to have one. Actually most will not. They won't have a "hero" come and save them because it's going to be too late. That is unless people like you and me do something. Maybe your thinking that your too young, or that you can't do anything to make a difference. Some people say "what's the use of trying to get people saved when most of them just reject you?" Every person matters. Even if you only lead one person to Christ, that's still making a difference. You made a difference in that one persons life, you made it possible for them to find their prince in shining armour (God) and you helped lead them safely to the castle (Heaven) where they will live "happily ever after." And all you have to do is be a servant. You see there are heroes in this world. They're the people who are servants of Christ. Just humble servants who gave their lives for Christ. I know a few heroes and someday I'd like to be one too. I think that we've both read enough books to know that in many novels sometimes the most ordinary of people become heroes. But you know what made them become a hero? They were willing to do something. They were willing to fight for what they believed in! Are you ready? Are you ready to share the good news that God died and rose again for everyone human being on this Earth? Are you going to be more then just a dreamer but a doer?

Go tell somebody that they too can have a "happily ever after" 
Be a hero.
Save a life.
Live a dream.
Fight the fight.
