Bo-Bo was so sad that he thought' No one likes me. I wish that i was out of the Circus. I'am thinking about running away. The other clowns tried to talk to Bo-Bo but he would not listen to any of the clowns. They tried to tell him that running away was not the answer. But Bo-Bo still ran away. Most of the time when we won't listen we get into trouble and this is what happened to B-Bo. No i don't with the law but he got into trouble in other ways. Lets look at some of the ways that Bo-Bo got into trouble. His first trouble starts in a large city. There he is in a city where he doesn't know anyone. This is trouble for Bo-Bo right from the beginning. This also makes Bo- Bo very sad. Bo-Bo sees lots of strange looking people. Bo-Bo thinks boy' I'm in trouble now. I wonder what i can do now. All these strange people scare me. Bo-Bo tries to hide from the people. Maybe i can i can run and get away from these people. But this didn't work. Nothing was working out the way that Bo-Bo thought that it should. What was wrong with these people/ There wasn't anything wrong with them' it was Bo-Bo. Self is our biggest problem. We need to get self out of the way. Don't fell sorry for yourself. Bo-Bo was so tired that he didn't know what to do. Then he saw a bench. Bo-Bo sat down on the bench. He had a tear coming down from his eye. A little boy came and sat down beside him. The little boy saw the tear in Bo-Bo's eye what is your name/ My name is Bo-Bo he answered. The little boy told Bo-Bo his name was BILLY. Billy said to Bo-Bo' why do you have a tear in your eye/ Bo-Bo said because nobody likes me. Billy said well i like you. Billy told Bo-Bo how he loved to go to the circus. Billy said that he loved everything about the circus but loved the clowns most of all. Billy told Bo-Bo about the time that he was in the hospital. How he hsd to have his leg taken off and how sad he felt. Billy felt that no one cared about him. He said that he would cry all the time and that he would not listen not even his mother and daddy. He did say that he never would forget the day that the clowns from the circus came to the hospital and how happy that they made him that day. They made him understand that he really was loved and tthat he needed to stop felling sorry for himself. Bo-Bo looked at Billy with tears in his eyes but not for feeling sorry for himself but these were tears of joy. For the first time in long time Bo-Bo was really happy. Yes a little boy had showed him that he was loved. Bo-Bo told Billy that he had acted so silly. He said i'am going back to the circus where i belong where i know i'am needed. So Bo-Bo headed back to the circus. You talk about being happy. Bo-Bo the clown was very happy as he was going back to the circus. Speacking to everyone that he saw. What a change that has come over Bo-Bo. No longer sad as before but happy. As he goes near the gate to the circus all the circus people see Bo-Bo coming. They all rush to the gate. The circus people started singing come on home Bo-Bo come on home. Bo-Bo was truly back at home where he belonged. The staff at the circus loved Bo-Bo. I hope that you enjoyed reading this short story about Bo-Bo the clown. Written By Charles O'Shields.
Can I Be Saved/ Yes my friend you can be saved. Because Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for all that will call on Him. We must call on the name of Jesus. You cannot be saved in any other name. It must be in the name of Jesus. Trust in His name today. Believe that Jesus is the Son of God. Then you have life in Him. I hope that you can see that this the only way to have real life. We have everlasting life if we believe in Jesus Christ. Why not believe right now/ As you read this tract believe in your heart. Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Most High God. Jesus Christ is seated at the right hand side of God. My friend lots of people think they can buy a ticket to heaven or maybe work their way to heaven. Some people even think that they will go to heaven because they are good. But this is not enough they must be saved. The same goes for everyone. We all must be born again. Born of the Spirit of God. We need the sword of the Spirit. Which is the word of God. The word of God cuts. The word is quick and powerful and sharper than any two edged sword. We can not save ourselves. You Must have faith in God. Faith in Jesus Christ knowing that He loves you. Yes He loved us so much that He died for our sins. He was buried and He rose again from the dead the third day. According to the word of God. Let's go to the word. Here are some verses taken from the Bible. I'am sure that these verses can help you. Shall we take a look/ Romans; Chapter 1' verse 16; For I'am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth to the Jew first and also the Greek; Romans; Chapter 10; verse; 12 and 13; For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek; for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. I hope that you can see that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. That my friend means you or anyone who will believe in Him can and will be saved. Trust Him in your heart. Don't just believe in your head but your heart. Let's take a look at Ephesians; Chapter 2' verse 8 and 9; For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not of works' lest any man should boast. I want us to look at some more of God's word. Let's look at Luke Chapter 13' verse 3; But except ye; repent' ye shall all likewise perish. Now God does not want anyone to die and go to Hell. Listen to me friend God wants to save you believe in God. Don't turn Him away but ask Him into your heart. I must give you this verse in the bible John; Chapter 3; verse 16; For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish' but have everlasting life. Accept Him now. Don't put Him off any longer. Let go and let God in your heart let the Devil know that you are saved. Because you have asked God to save you and you believe He has if you did this praise God. And listen to this preacher If you know that you did get saved I want to praise God with you call me if you would like to call 864-908-2499.
