There is no plan B

There Is No Plan "B"

     There is a story of a conversation between Jesus and Gabriel which is purely fictional, but illustrates a good point.

     After Jesus ascended to heaven, the angel Gabriel approached Him and said, "Master, you must have suffered terribly for men down there." "I did," He said. "And," continued Gabriel, "do they know all about how you loved them and what you did for them?"

     "Oh, no," said Jesus, "not yet. Right now only a handful of people in Palestine know." Gabriel was perplexed. "Then what have you done, to let everyone know about your love for them?"

     Jesus said, "I've asked Peter, James, John, and a few more friends to tell other people about Me. Those who are told will in turn tell still other people about Me, and My story will be spread to the farthest reaches of the globe. Ultimately, all of mankind will have heard about My life and what I have done."

     Gabriel frowned and looked rather skeptical. He knew well what poor stuff men were made of. "But what if Peter and James and John grow weary? What if the people who come after them forget? What if way down in the twenty-first century, people just don't tell others about you? Haven't you made any other plans?"

And Jesus answered, "I haven't made any other plans. I'm counting on them”

Twenty centuries later...Jesus still has no other plan!

A. There is no "plan B". He counted on his early Disciples, and they delivered.

B. He's counting on you and me. Have we done as well?
