A little boy

The surgeon explained to the little boy about open heart surgery....
"Tomorrow morning," the surgeon began, "I'll open up your heart..."
"You'll find Jesus there," the boy interrupted.
The surgeon looked up, annoyed. "I'll cut your heart open," 
he continued, "to see how much damage has been done..."
"But when you open up my heart, you'll find Jesus in
there." The surgeon looked to the parents, who sat quietly. "When
I see how much damage has been done, I'll sew your heart and chest 
back up and I'll plan what to do next."
"But you'll find Jesus in my heart. The Bible says He lives there.
The hymns all say He lives there. You'll find Him in my heart."
The surgeon had had enough. "I'll tell you what I'll find in your 
heart. I'll find damaged muscle, low blood supply, and weakened 
vessels. And I'll find out if I can make you well."
"You'll find Jesus there too. He lives there."
The surgeon left.
The surgeon sat in his office, recording his notes after
the surgery, "...damaged aorta, damaged pulmonary vein, widespread
muscle degeneration. No hope for transplant, no hope for cure.
Therapy: painkillers and bed rest. Prognosis:, " here he paused,
"death expected in a short timeframe." He stopped the recorder, but 
there was more to be said.
"Why?" he asked aloud. "Why did You do this? You've put
him here; You've put him in this pain; and You've cursed him to an
early death, Why?"
The Lord answered and said, "The boy, My lamb, was not
meant for your flock for long, for he is a part of My flock, and will
forever be. Here, in My flock, he will feel no pain, and will be
comforted as you cannot imagine. His parents will one day join him 
here, and they will know peace, and My flock will continue to grow."
The surgeon's tears were hot, but his anger was hotter.
"You created that boy, and You created that heart. He'll be dead in
soon.  Why?"
The Lord answered, "The boy, My lamb, shall return to My flock,
for he has done his duty: I did not put My lamb with your flock
to lose him, but to retrieve another lost lamb."
The surgeon wept.
The surgeon sat beside the boy's bed; the boy's parents
sat across from him. The boy awoke and whispered, "Did you cut open
my heart?"
"Yes," said the surgeon.
"What did you find?" asked the boy.
"I found Jesus there," said the surgeon.
The boy looked at the surgeon and his parents and smiled and then 
closed his eyes and went to be with Jesus.....

Jesus is our source of existence and Savior.
Jesus keeps us functioning each and every day.
Without Jesus, we can do nothing.
Without him, we are nothing,
but with Him we can do all things through
Christ that strengthens us.
(Phil 4:13)

"Neither doctrinal purity nor diligent labor will ever be a substitute for passionate devotion to God."
