A young boy from Australia was sleeping one night in his Sydney home.
He woke up through the night to find a man staring right at him as the boy lay in his bed.
Frightened, the young boy believed this man to be a dangerous thief who could harm him.
The young boy decided his best hope was to close his eyes, stay silent and hope for the best.
After a while the thief did leave the home and fortunately, the boy was safe.
When that young boy grew up he read from the Bible that Jesus would come like a “thief in the night” to those who aren’t ready.
As he thought about this he realised that on that day it would be no use closing his eyes, staying silent and hoping for the best.
True safety would only come if he accepted Jesus as his Friend now.
He decided to commit his life to Jesus and be ready and waiting for Jesus to come.
