Undesirable Epistle
mar21.PNG

[A young christian man (Julius) comes into a compound to speak the word of God to the people living there.  It is a block of  flats rented by people from different backgrounds, tribes  and religions. He meets a young man in front of his house playing with his phone.]
Julius
Good evening sir.
Dare
Good evening.
Julius
How are you doing today?
Dare
I am fine. And you? 
Julius 
I am fine. I will like to share something so precious with you.
Dare
Something precious! What can that be? 
Julius 
The unconditional love of the Father.
Dare
Alright, you can come in and have a seat. 
Julius 
Thank you. 
(He goes in and seat)
Julius  is my name. 
Dare. 
I am Dare. You are welcome here. Do you mind a glass of water?
Julius
No,  thank you. (with a smile)
Dare
What of juice?
Julius 
No my brother, May God continue  to bless you.
Dare
Amen!
Julius 
I have come with this good news that says, Jesus loves you! He paid the price of his life for you to be safe. 
Looking at the world we live today,  we have many things bothering us and different challenges coming our way,  we need one to help us. Jesus has willingly offered himself to help us, to see us through that is if we can come to him. 
He will take care of you,  protect you,  heal you, strengthen you when you are weak,  be your friend  when rejected, He is the sure companion, He is the hope in time of despair. He loves you and all this you will have with him when you come to him. Do you get it my brother?
Dare
Yes. 
Julius
So will you like to give yourself to this Mighty Savior,  who is willing to make your life beautiful more than you might have dreamt of. No matter the level of your success now, God is willing to take you higher than you think or ask according  to his power that will come upon you if you come to him. 
Dare 
Thank you my brother. I don't need him. 
Julius
(Puzzled) You need Jesus. He is a friend that sticks closer than brother.  He won't forsake you,  He won't fail  you. I know what I am saying, my life is a true testimony of Christ's love.  He took me from zero to hero. He helped me to go beyond  where I had placed myself because of the lack of the help of man. Brother Dare, you need him. You need Jesus, a dear friend, a faithful saviour.
Dare
I said, I don't need your Jesus. I am okay with my life.
Julius. 
A life is not in its best without Jesus. A life is not totally save without  Jesus, you need him. He will fill your life with unspeakable joy of the Holy Spirit. He will turn your shame to glory.  He loves you. Brother, you need him. Do you have a church where you worship?
Dare
No,  I don't 
Julius 
Then I invite you to mine. 
Dare
Thank you brother for inviting  me but sir, I won't come. I may not be going to church but I know the Lord knows me. I don't kill,  I don't lie, I don't fornicate. I am okay with my life. 
Julius 
Brother Dare, please locate a Bible believing church around you and pay attention to the word of God,  there you will see how much God loves you. And I believe  the Holy Spirit will speak to you. 
Dare
I won't bother. Let me tell you, the most troublesome people in this compound are your people,  they are the ones who gossip about one another and backbite. They are the one who fight each other in this compound, keep malice. Is that the kind of life you are inviting  me to? I love my peaceful life. 
Julius 
That is not a life in Christ,  they are not manifesting the life in Christ. 
Dare
If those ones going to church are not manifesting the life of Christ, why should  I join? Why are you calling me to the camp of those who lie, curse,  keep malice, fight,  gossip? I will not. 
(They hear a noise  of quarell from the other side)
It is your people. Let us check them.
[They go to see. Two women and their children  are exchanging words. Bro Julius sees a madam from her church. He is amazed, she is respected among  the brethren. Now she is displaying a strange nature. She runs forward to her side.]
Julius
Deaconess Esther, stop this. This is not you. I know you to be humble and loving. 
Dcn Esther
Leave me, let me deal with this daughter of Belial. This God forsaken woman of darkness. A right hand woman of the devil. No weapon that you fashion against  me shall prosper.
(The children of two women are speaking again each other underneath) 
Elder Christanah
You are the woman of darkness. You stupid gossip. You naughty adulteress. All your charm against me, they no go work. Your knowledge  are turn to foolishness.
Dare
Is that  what you are inviting  me to.
[Julius stand in his place with tears in his eyes. He gives a shout]
Julius
S-t-o-p!
Deaconess is this what you do? How do you want the light of God to shine through  you and bring others to Christ. Madam you are also a christain but this which you do does not reflect Christ. You are of the devil not of the Lord. The Bible says you are the epistle that the world reads but what you are doing now, you make the epistle of Christ undesirable.
(They continue to exchange word as if he was not speaking to either of them. He faced Dare.) 
Brother do not mind them,  they do not reflect Christ. That is not way the Lord teaches in his word. They live their own life. Please come yourself and see the truth the Lord, don't allow these ones to lead you astray with their ways. 
Dare
I will try.
Julius 
Try and the Lord will reveal  himself to you. 
Dare
Amen!
