Heaven's Grocery Store

I was walking down life's highway a long time ago, when one day I saw a sign that read "Heaven's Grocery Store". 


As I got a little closer, the door came open wide,
and when I came to myself, I was standing inside. 

I saw a host of angels, they were standing everywhere.  One handed me a blanket and said, "My child, shop with care."  Everything a Christian needed was in that Grocery Store,  and all you can't carry, come back the next day for more.  

First, I got some PATIENCE, LOVE was in the same row,   further down was UNDERSTANDING, you needed everywhere you go. I got a box or two of WISDOM, a bag or two of FAITH,  I just couldn't miss that HOLY GHOST, it was all over the place. 
  

I stopped to get some STRENGTH and COURAGE to help me run this race, but then my basket was getting full, and I remembered I needed GRACE. 

   

I didn't forget SALVATION, which like the others was free, so I tried to get enough of that to save both you and me.  

Then I started to the counter to pay my grocery bill, for I thought I had everyting to do my Master's will.  
As I went up the aisle, I saw PRAYER and had to put that in,  for I knew when I stepped outside, I would run right into SIN.  

PEACE and JOY were plentiful, they were on the last shelf.  SONG and PRAISES were hanging near, so I just helped myself.  Then I said to the Angel, "How much do I owe?"  The Angel smiled and said, "Just take them everywhere you go."   

Again I politely asked, "How much do I really owe?"

 The Angel smiled again and said,

"MY CHILD, JESUS PAID YOUR BILL A LONG TIME AGO."
