As long as I live there will be something worth fighting for, worth writing for, and worth dying for.

What if...

A Christian author just brought up an interesting point on his facebook status. What would life be like if you were the only one? If you were, indeed, God's favorite. His exact question:

What if you were God's favorite? I mean, what if everyone else was really an android or something and it was all about you. Heaven and Hell perched on the edge of their seats to see what you will do next... and you don't even know it. Think about it. Set your mind free, my child. No theology lessons please, just run with it and see where it takes you.

The discussion has been intriguing to say the least. You have those who sit there and say, "Well, aren't we all God's favorite?" In the sense that Christ would ahve died for any one of us, yes, of course, we are, but I think the point of the question is "what if you were God's only favorite?"

What if you, alone, were the one person in the world who had an immortal soul. How would you love God? Would you feel you needed His love? Would you feel worthy of His love?

Can you imagine if all of the powers of Heaven and Hell battled for your time and attention? Can you imagine if angels and demons sat enthralled, waiting, just waiting to see what you did next?

You would not only be God's favorite but Satan's favorite...

It would all come down to which was your favorite.

And isn't that what it comes down to anyway?
