Tabby and Rambo -- By Dean Masters

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13 KJV)  [1]

In July a dark gray kitten showed up at our house. She was so loving. She would jump up onto anyone's lap to be petted. Of course, we loved having a cat like that so we kept her. We named her Tabby.

In August an orange kitten showed up. It would not let anyone get near it. When someone went into the garage where the cats were fed the orange one would run away. One night it was scared by a dodge Ram truck so we named it Rambo. After a while it would just run under the car in the garage when someone came out. Then it got so it would not run but would not come to anyone. It would see someone petting Tabby who would go into fits at times when you scratched the right spot. Rambo finally got to where it seemed to want to be petted but was possibly thinking, "Can I trust those humans?" Finally in mid-December we started to be able to pet Rambo every now and then. Rambo was starting to trust us.

Maybe you are like Rambo. You know about Jesus Christ - his birth and death and resurrection - but you are wondering if you can trust that all that is true. You are wondering if you can trust Jesus Christ with your life.

As one person wrote:

"You can trust the man who died for you."

Turn from your sins and put your trust in Jesus Christ for your salvation.


Jesus Please forgive me for all of my sins. I turn from them now. I put my complete trust in you for my salvation. Thank you for dying for me so I can have eternal life. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
