Gary was at a dinner party when he heard a sound like firecrackers going off. The sounds got louder and louder, when suddenly, armed men rushed in and started shooting at everyone in the dinner party.
Gary and his companions immediately dove under the table. As Gary as cowering, the armed men were spraying bullets everywhere. One of the assailants moved within two feet of him. Gary shut his eyes tight.
Gary could feel a gun pointed at his head. Gary knew he was about to die. Then suddenly, all the armed men left the dining hall.
A hushed silence fell upon the hall. Gary stayed very still on the ground for several minutes before he dared to get up.
Gary looked around the carnage left in the wake of the shooting and realized that he was the only one left alive. Gary glanced down at himself and discovered that he was covered in someone else's blood. The armed men must have thought that he was already dead.
Jesus' blood alone can cover and save us.
