Undesirable Epistle II
march020.PNG

(Two friends seat in a room.  One has come to visit the other. One is a christain while other is a pagan.)
Joy
I don't get to see you these days. I decided to come to your house to check on your wellbeing. What are you up to? 
Mercy
I have been busy preparing  for the concert we have in the church. It is going to be glorious! You know, I have my group and I am also part of the choir. These had kept me busy. 
Joy. 
Church girl. 
Mercy
That is what has been paving way for me but for Christ, you know my story now. And I am enjoying it so I have to be committed.
Joy
Thank God for how far he has brought us. Those day are not comparable to now. 
Mercy
I thank my God. The nights of no roof to sleep under are over,  the days of no food are over. I am grateful Jesus.
(Joy smiles) 
Joy, I thank God for you but you need also to come become church girl, then all things will be balance.
Joy
Forget that my dear. God is good to me and I am grateful. Forget all this church thing. Na lie. 
Mercy 
You are my friend. I have seen the life in Christ, it is the best. It is the one I have no regret living. Come to Jesus,  he loves you.
Joy
Mercy let me tell you.  I am better than some of you in church. Take it from me. 
Mercy
Yes, you may have money,  food, house but you still need Jesus.
Joy 
That is not what I am saying. Is my boss not a deacon in your church?
Mercy 
Of course, he is. 
Joy. 
Does he not climb the altar to minister?
Mercy
Of course. As a matter of fact, he is one of the most dedicated deacons. He is one of those sponsoring this concert. 
Joy. 
Good! I know what that your deacon does in the office. He is a chronic fornication.
Mercy
It is a lie! Deacon Jaye will never do such. 
Joy
He sleeps with the old and young. Married and single. 
Mercy
You lied about that. He has a beautiful wife and wonderful children. He teaches against adultery  in Bible studies and make good reference  to his family.
Joy
Lies on the altar. Let me tell you one of my pretty little secrets. I am one of his girls in the office. We still did it last night. Such an energetic  man, always wanting more.
Mercy
The blood of Jesus!
Joy
Forget the blood of Jesus. I do this to secure my job and it paid off. He gives me extra  money and I have been saving most of my salary, some times I don't even touch it. He is the hot man in office. Generous  to those who grace his bed. 
Mercy
If it is not that you are my friend and I trust you,  I won't believe it. But that is not what the Bible say. The Bible says, bed undefile. He is supposed to keep his body holy as a living sacrifice unto God. The vow he made before God with us wife should be honoured and not marred with the lust of the flesh.
Joy. 
Super story. He is good at what he is doing. I tell you there are some young christain sisters in the office that runs with him codedly but we know. Even one girl in your church, an usher, she does it fine and good. Omo, you have to use what have to preserve what  you can see. Good jobs are  not easy to find. 
Mercy 
Oh my God!
Joy 
If you need evidence  I will show you. He says he enjoys me. He says he wants more of me. So we are travelling together during weekend, that is what he is going to tell his family  but we are camping at the north side of the town.
Mercy
Joy, this is too much. You yourself  don't need this. Jesus loves you, he wants to give you  rest  from all this struggle  to get a sane life.
Joy. 
I hear o. Jesus that those ones are serving and they need runs. Well, I know what to do to proof what I am saying.
Mercy.
Alright listen to my song and tell me how it is.
(she begins to sing)

Saturday Morning.
Mercy in her room reading a book. Her phone beeps for messages. It was whatsapp messages. When she opened it,  it was the picture  of sleeping deacon with the message.  'We just had a nice time and he is sleeping' another one came with her face resting on him. 
Mercy was perplexed, it is the last thing she would think off. 

Monday evening
Mercy 
I won't watch you go like that.  That man is not a good reflection  of the word of God. He is suppose to  be a role model to you not one who would get you on the wrong  track.  I cried seeing and knowing he does all those things. He is not of God 
Joy
That is the way to preserve my job. We had fun and he gave me good money.
Mercy
Those thing are the things of the world and they will perish. You did not have fun, you are sinning against  your own soul. The money he gave you will finish. But the love of God will never end. He is not an ideal example to follow.
Joy
If I leave my job, will your Jesus give me a job?
Mercy 
I have spoken to my boss about you today. He promise to get back  to me. Life is not all about now. If he wants to perish do not follow him, Jesus  loves you joy. Come to him. He will forgive, forget your sin. And care for you. Please.
Joy 
You know how  far I have come,  I don't want to suffer again. I need my job.
Mercy
You will have one. I don't mind giving the one I am doing if my boss will agree. I will face my music career. 
Joy 
That serious.
Mercy
The live Christ has for you is more than you can quantify.  I am very sure He would make a way. 
Don't follow the foot steps of that man ,  they do not reflect Christ, they belong to their father the devil.
