      *************************
      "HI DAD"

      The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of
      what I thought to be a court house.

      The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the
      defense table.

      As I looked around I saw the ‘prosecutor.’

      He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me.  He
      definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen.

      I sat down and looked to my left and there sat My Attorney,  kind and
      gentle looking man whose appearance seemed so familiar to me, I felt I
      knew Him.  

      The corner door flew open and there appeared the Judge in full flowing
      robes.

      He commanded an awesome presence as He moved across the room I couldn’t
      take my eyes off Him.

      As He took His seat behind the bench, He said, ‘Let us begin.’

      The prosecutor rose and said,

      ‘My name is Satan and I am here to show you why this man belongs in
      hell.’

      He proceeded to tell of lies that I told, things that I stole, and In
      the past when I cheated others. Satan told of other horrible Perversions
      that were once in my life and the more he spoke, the further down in my
      seat I sank.  

      I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t look at anyone, even my own
      Attorney, as the Devil told of sins that even I had completely forgotten
      about.  

      As upset as I was at Satan for telling all these things about me, I was
      equally upset at My Attorney who sat there silently not offering any
      form of defense at all.  

      I know I had been guilty of those things, but I had done some good in my
      life - couldn’t that at least equal out part of the harm I’d done?  

      Satan finished with a fury and said, ‘This man belongs in hell, he is
      guilty of all that I have charged and there is not a person who can
      prove otherwise.’  

      When it was His turn, My Attorney first asked if He might approach the
      bench. The Judge allowed this over the strong objection of Satan, and
      beckoned Him to come forward.

      As He got up and started walking, I was able to see Him in His full
      splendor and majesty.  

      I realized why He seemed so familiar; this was Jesus representing me, my
      Lord and my Savior.  

      He stopped at the bench and softly said to the Judge, ‘Hi, Dad ,’ and
      then He turned to address the court.

      ‘Satan was correct in saying that this man had sinned, I won’t deny any
      of these allegations. And, yes, the wages of sin is death, and this man
      deserves to be punished.’

      Jesus took a deep breath and turned to His Father with outstretched arms
      and proclaimed, ‘However, I died on the cross so that this person might
      have eternal life and he has accepted Me as his Savior, so he is Mine.’  

      My Lord continued with, ‘His name is written in the Book of Life,  and
      no one can snatch him from Me.

      Satan still does not understand yet.  This man is not to be given
      justice, but rather mercy.’

      As Jesus sat down, He quietly paused, looked at His Father and said,
      ‘There is nothing else that needs to be done.’

      ‘I’ve done it all.’

      The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down.  The
      following words bellowed from His lips...

      ‘This man is free.  The penalty for him has already been paid in full.
      ‘Case dismissed.’

      As my Lord led me away, I could hear Satan ranting and raving, ‘I won’t
      give up, I will win the next one.
