YOU TOOK MY PARKING SPACE AT CHURCH

(This should wake us up.)

One day, a man went to visit a church,
He got there early, parked his car 

and got out. Another car pulled up
near the driver got out and said,  

"I always park there! You took my place!" 

The visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat and sat down. 
A young lady from the church approached him and stated, 
"That's my seat! You took my place!"

The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but
said nothing.

After Sunday School, the visitor went into the sanctuary and sat down. 

Another member walked up to him and said, "That's where 
I always sit! You took my place!" The visitor was even more troubled 

by this treatment, but still He said nothing.

Later as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell 
among them
, the visitor stood up, and His appearance began to change. 

Horrible scars became visible on His hands and on His sandaled 
feet. Someone from the congregation noticed Him and called out, 

"What happened to you?"

The visitor replied, as His hat became a crown of thorns, and a tear fell from His eye, "I took your place."

When you receive this, say a prayer.
That's all you have to do. 
This is
powerful. 
Maybe, just

maybe, we can get the world to start 
thinking of who took our place.
