A Short Christian Story - The Rope

 


How well do you trust God? Will you do all he asks you to do with doubts? This is a beautiful Christian story for kids to help grow our faith in God.

A certain man left his home to go hiking on a mountain. He stayed up in the mountain till evening. The night fell so heavy that it covered the mountain tops and the man could barely see a thing. The moon and the stars weren’t giving their light because they were covered by dark clouds. It was total darkness on the mountain top.

As he tried to make his way down the mountain, he slipped fell into the air. He was falling at a great speed and all he could see were black dots as he went down. He felt an unusual sensation take over his body as he was absorbed by gravity.

Just then, memories of his life on earth flashed through his mind. He remembered all of his good and evil deeds. He thought about his death and what could happen to him. Suddenly, he felt a firm grip around his waist which prevented from falling further. Surprised and not knowing what to do next, he called out to God, “Help me, Lord!”

Suddenly, a voice thundered from heaven and said, “what do you want from me?”

“Save me, Lord, I don’t want to die now” he cried again.

“What makes you think that I can save you?” the voice asked.

“you are the greatest Lord and I believe you can,” he replied.

“Alright then, cut the rope around your waist,” the voice replied.

The man was shocked, he couldn’t believe what he has just heard the voice say. The only thing keeping him alive at the moment, how could the voice suggest such a thing at this critical moment? There was silence for some time and the man decided to hold on to the rope with all his strength.

Early the next morning, a rescue team that had gone in search of the man found him dead, hanging from a rope just a foot from the ground. He was found frozen and his hand firmly holding the rope.

Never doubt God. He has good thoughts for us, all we have to do is believe and trust in Him. He can’t lead us astray. If the man had listened to the voice of God when He said, “cut the rope around your waist,” he would still be alive. Always trust God, never doubt Him.
