Story Time 2

Talking to Jesus....

The story is told of an old woman who would tell anyone who asked that she talked to Jesus, and that He talked back to her... all the time. When questioned she would confirm that indeed she talked to Jesus and Jesus talked back to her, that they had conversations all the time.

The preacher who felt like many others in the church that the old woman was crazy asked her one day about her story. He asked her if she really believed she talked to Jesus. Of course she responded that she did and that He talked back to her. Well the preacher had had enough and wanted to expose her as just a crazy old woman he told her, "Since you talk to Jesus, the next time you talk to Him, ask Him what my last sin was." The old woman said okay.....

A few weeks go by and the preacher, ready to prove his point corners the old woman and asks, "Well have you talked to Jesus?" The old woman replied that she had. The preacher said, " Did you ask Him what my last sin was?" The old woman said, "yes."
The preacher said, "Well what did He say?

The old woman said, "He said, I don't remember..."

Psalms 103:8-12 The LORD is merciful! He is kind and patient, and his love never fails. (9) The LORD won't always be angry and point out our sins; (10) he doesn't punish us as our sins deserve. (11) How great is God's love for all who worship him? Greater than the distance between heaven and earth! (12) How far has the LORD taken our sins from us? Farther than the distance from east to west!
