An Impressive Set With Nothing Inside

Hollywood is kind of a world of illusions. If you don't know it already, well you learn it when you tour a major studio. I did that once and I got to see where movies and TV series were filmed. You find out, for example, that when you see a man speeding along in a car he might be sitting still on the set. They put in all the scenery that makes it look like he's moving, later - behind him.
I remember reading about Gary Cooper, who was a legendary movie star of another generation. And they had a great illusion for him in this western town. One of the buildings had a door that they actually "shrunk" for Gary Cooper, because Gary Cooper wasn't very tall. Oh, you're not supposed to have a short hero, you know? And they wanted a tall leading man, so they made the door small so he would look tall.
It's a world of illusion. And it didn't stop with the western town. There was a street in a WWII vintage European village, and there was old Chicago. And the buildings! Oh, impressive until you open a door and go inside, and there's nothing there. Did you ever get that feeling about your life?
This could be the day that you experience finally the reality, the ultimate reality of God not around you but God in you. Of the peace and the love and the forgiveness and the heaven that only Jesus can give you, because only He died to make it possible. And He walked out of His grave so He could walk into your life today. If you want to know how to begin that relationship, would you join me at our website as soon as you can today? YoursForLife.net.
If you're tired of just repainting the scenery of your life and making a more impressive exterior, why don't you open the door of that set and let Jesus Christ into the emptiness behind it. He can build a house there that you can really live in.
