Meesho used to read the Bible to his son since his infancy and relate to him some stories. Son liked to listen to his daddy narrating stories especially of Lord Jesus Christ. He asked many questions which Meesho answered except one: “Dad, I know that angels and archangels and all who are in heaven praise God continuously. All the saints in paradise glorify Him. But what does Lord Jesus Christ do in paradise?”
They both slept. Son saw in a dream Lord Jesus Christ sitting on His throne surrounded by thousands praising Him with great joy. He saw Him in unspeakable glory. He saw all approaching Him while, He was wiping the tears of the believers’ eyes. Therefore, His glory was reflected on them. The son approached Lord Jesus Christ. He saw Him groaning. Thus, he asked him wondering, “How do You groan O Lord, You who wipe the tears of the sufferers and bestow upon them Your Glory?”
“I’m sad ‘cause I love you and you still commit sins.” Lord Jesus answered.
“You don’t allow me to penetrate your depth. On the contrary, you dismiss me. I want to make my throne in you. I call you while, you don’t call me. You don’t accept me to carry your burdens. I knock the door of your heart but you don’t open. You forget me being busy with dust. However, I never forget you. I don’t occupy myself even with the Heavenly hosts. I died for you while you’re indifferent. I’m sad ‘cause you don’t know how much I do love you.”
Tears went down the son’s cheeks. He bowed his head ashamed and approached his Lord. The Lord embraced him with His Hands. The son looked and saw them bleeding. He cried, “What’s this my Lord?”
“I still love you. My blood purifies you of every sin and makes you worthy of sharing with me my glory.”
